Fourth Time's a Charm

I have tried Nutmeg a few times and each time, because of setting, other hallucinogens, time, and dosage, each experience has been very different.

The first time I tried it, I had taken two pills of MDMA and remembered reading about nutmeg. I figured that snorting the nutmeg might help it work faster than what I had read. Because of the MDMA, I didn't feel too many effects and saw mild trails, but the effects were MUCH faster than ingestion.

The second time I tried nutmeg was when I decided to eat the recommended amount. I did it around 8:00 PM and felt nearly no effects. The next day, however, I woke up feeling as if I was glued to my bed. I had been asleep for about 10 hours and was coming down off of the peak. I was seeing movement on my walls and felt like my bed was trying to swallow me. No negative effects other than mind dizziness.

The third time I tried nutmeg, I had been drinking and was at the point of being drunk. Forgetting that it is a CNS depressant, I put about 5 lines up my nose and puked. I felt like I couldn't move for the rest of the night. DO NOT MIX NUTMEG WITH ALCOHOL OR ANY OTHER DEPRESSANT!!

The fourth time I finally got it right. I ingested about 3 tsp. (approx 15 grams) at around 4:00 PM. I didn't feel any effects until around 8:00, when I got a slight buzz and a lot of energy. Along with this, I felt a pain in my arms (something that happens to me on mushrooms as well). I remember having to use some rubber cement for a project and thinking that the cement was what was affecting me, not the nutmeg. Around 10:00 or 11:00, I went to the bathroom and looked at my eyes. They were VERY red. My mouth was very dry and I was feeling like I had been awake for days. I went back to my room and watched a movie in complete darkness. I was concentrating heavily on the movie and remember feeling as if everything but the TV screen was existing inside of a void or another dimension. I went to bed around 3:00, still feeling strong effects. The next day, I kind of had a hard time waking up, and my thoughts were somewhat blurred, but this might have been my lack of sleep the night before.
