5 Grams Too Far...

Citation:   Flah. "5 Grams Too Far...: An Experience with Mushrooms (exp32072)". Erowid.org. Mar 5, 2021. erowid.org/exp/32072

15 g oral Mushrooms - P. mexicana (dried)
    smoked Cannabis (plant material)

BODY WEIGHT: 10.5 st

[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]

I've taken shrooms a few times, and normally I take 10g, I'd never had a bad trip with that ammount, and I decided to try 15g. I was perfectly fine on the night, was actually happier than usual.

I was pretty happy on the night, so the reason my trip was bad, I don't know, we had chopped the mushrooms up to eat, and we ate them and sat on my bed smoking some J's. I ate the shrooms at about 1, and at 1:30 after about 5 J's I went downstairs to get a glass of water. I had this rhythm in my head, and I really wanted to stop hearing it (nothing to do with the shrooms) so I went to the computer and put a track on, after that I can't remember anything specific. My mate came down stairs because I had been about 15 minutes and they wondered where I was.

Apparently I had been on my way up, and Flah2 (the mate who came looking for me) said I'd been talking to myself, when we got into my room I broke into tears and for an hour just sat crying... the next hour things went very very wrong. I was having a nightmare, and seeing glimpses of what was going on around me, I could see red splotches everywhere, and I thought I was dying. I think I wanted to kill myself, and in many attempts to do so, I tried to kill my friends, gouge my eyes out, and make myself throw up and come out with random comments such as: 'Knife in my mouth...' (I really haven't a clue why...)

After that hour of constant trip my mates ended up telling my dad, well he wasn't happy, but I guess he was... understanding :P I calmed down as soon as he came in, I thought I was just having a nightmare, but it was actually happening. It was weird, after he came in I went to sleep for an hour, woke up, Flah3, my other mate was trying to say Flah2's name but managed to say mine instead... after that I was actually feeling really cool.

So :P I'm sticking with 10g in future and definetly not Mexican, they are well fucked up.
