Frustrating and Exhausting

1 tablet oral MDMA


I had taken ecstacy once before and had an amazing time so I decided to try it again. I was in the perfect place to do it. I was at my favorite outdoor concert venue, school had just ended, one of my favorite artists was performing, and I was with all my best friends. We all took our pills before the show started, and within about a half hour we were feeling the effects kick in.

My frineds seemed to be all having a good time and were excited for the effects to increase. I on the other hand started to get a feeling of ambivilence and physical weakness. I got kind of worried that I would not have the same roll that I did last time but I knew I had to keep a positive mindset. Afterall, i have found that my mental set has a large impact on my experience with drugs. Unfortunately, this did not help and I started to really get scared that something bad would happen to me.

My best knew I wasn't enjoying myself so she took me to a less crowded area and sat me down under a tree. All of a sudden something really bad happend to me. I felt overwhelmed with physical weakness; I was so hot, sweaty, shaking like it was -20 degrees outside, and so tired. Then I got really sad and the fact that I was missing the show made me even more upset.

Then I got very very frustrated. It seemed that my emotions would change every few minutes from sad to frustrated to scared. I was being very safe by drinking water and resting but this did not help. When i stood up I felt happy and I thought the bad part was over so I went back to the show, but two minutes later it went away.

This was all very exhausting. I do not know why this happened because 7 other people took the smae pill and had a great time. This goes to show that no matter what the circumstances are, there is still a chance of having a bad experience. Don't take the chance becaue even though rolls can be fun, it can be HORRIBLE!
