Bad Experience

1.8 oz oral Nutmeg (tea)


while waiting for some 5-MeO to be delievered to me, I decided I could no longer wait to have a psychadelic experience. I had read how to make nutmeg tea. Not one to be made sick easily, I quickly dismissed any warnings referring to how sick nutmeg can make people, and went to the store to look for some whole nutmeg. I couldn't find any whole nutmeg which is suggested, so I settled for a 1.8oz jar of ground nutmeg. I came home, announced to my family that i was going to be trying this, and got to work on my nutmeg tea. I followed all the instructions, and about an hour later, I was very excited to drink it. It was quite possibly the most horrible concoction ever, even after having poured about 1/6 of a Honey Bear honey jar in my tea. I was still drinking granules of nutmeg after having strained it. After I got to almost the bottom of my tea, I couldn't drink anymore, so I dumped it out and felt suddenly very tired.

I didn't want to move even to go to the bathroom, so for about three hours I laid on my couch and watched 'The Shining' with my younger sister. I have seen 'The Shining' several times and although it is a very creepy movie, I was excessively spooked by the middle of the movie and had to go to bed. It was making me feel oppressed by the amount of spookiness I was feeling. I finished my nutmeg tea at 830PM and laid down for bed at 1AM. When I laid down in my bed, i looked at my wood walls with the dark spots on it and they were moving down like the walls were slowly melting. I felt like I was floating and had no real contact with reality. I felt sick. I fell asleep shortly after that. At 6:30 that morning, I woke up, grabbed a blanket off my bed and went downstairs and leaned over the toilet for about 20 minutes. My mom freaked out and called poison control. I never threw up, but I felt nauseaus for a good three hours. All morning, I felt like I had a really bad hangover from some really bad liquor. I had a horrible headache, too. I had to call into work sick because I was incapable of driving (things were still spinning). The lethargy was like nothing I ever felt before: I couldn't stay awake for more than 40 minutes at a time. I spent my entire day sleeping. I felt fine the next day.

I am not sure if my experience would have been different had i used whole nutmeg as opposed to ground nutmeg, but I am not going to find out. I am through with nutmeg.
