It was a strange night. I had a fight with my girlfriend. We made up, but I was still left with that feeling like we had a lot more to really work out. I was generally happy, but my mind was not clear.
Since this report is really about the Nitrous, I'll make this part short. I first ate 4 grams of homegrown P. cubensis mushrooms to start the journey, followed by about two hours of laying motionless, face down on the floor listening to music. I wasn't feeling very happy anymore and I already knew it hadn't been a good idea to take the mushrooms, but I thought I could make a bad situation better. I had never had a bad experience with Nitrous.
I had four cans of whip cream at my disposal. The first was nice, as were the second and the third, but the fourth one...
As soon as I inhaled the cool sweet gas I knew something was wrong. I was instantly slammed into a completely black and empty world as if someone had put a bag over my head and beat me senseless. I saw short bursts of bright white light above me and I felt like thousands of volts of electricity were passing through my brain. I wanted to scream, but i couldn't even remember what happened to my body...or where I was. The ordeal only lasted about a minute, but it was pretty scary. I didn't think a bad experience on nitrous was possible! Well, I learned that one the hard way...after the mushrooms had worn off I was able to remember the details of what had happened very clearly and it still scared me.
Since then I have overcome my fears of nitrous oxide, although it was nearly a year before I felt comfortable even being around the stuff. I have even developed a love (and respect) for it, and it has taken me places nothing else ever could. I will never forget what happened to me that night and I will never take this substance so lightly again.
