My boyfriend and I decided to take mushrooms this evening and since it's freezing outside we're going to just hang out in our apartment. I find being cold kills the buzz almost completely, and that would be a waste of time wouldn't it. So, while i'm near a computer I plan to write about my experience until I feel I feel incapable of doing so...
We added about 2 grams each dried mushrooms (sliced and diced) into boiling water and let it steep for about 10 minutes. After drinking the tea I chewed on the mushrooms at the bottom of my cup and spit them back out (I didn't want to eat them because I found that I get really back stomach cramps). Making mushroom tea is supposed to suppress the cramps. We'll just see about that.
7:03 We started slowly drinking our teas, I was careful not to swallow any floaters.
7:15 Took a bong hit or two just to waste time.
7:20 After my tea was done I chewed on the mushrooms and spit them back in the cup, then added more boiling water to the cup. I'm drinking that now. I'm starting to get easily distracted.
7:43 My boyfriend's jammin with his friend and he seems normal as can be. The distortion from the guitar is making my head feel weird, and I'm starting to notice mega dizziness and how everything is so goddamn colorful. Haha. My boyfriend just confirmed that feeling. Anything I say from here on out I may not remember so well.
8:00 I'm having a hard time typing, my boyfriends mumbling (or maybe I'm just hearing things?) and everything I look at turns into a blob of color. Also, waves of intense feeling are hitting me like every 30 seconds. It's not a bad feeling by any means, it's really enjoyable and it makes me want to get up and do something. The people jamming behind me are making trippy sounds with distortion pedals. It's the craziest thing my ears have ever heard. Holy shit. Last time I took mushrooms I remember looking at my cat and it looked like it was broken, and crooked, and it's head was on the wrong way. I'm really afraid to look at my cat right now.
8:14 Waves of feeling keep coming they're making me feel really dizzy...This is alot of fun. My boyfriend's singing and walking around, it's really entertaining. We can't seem to stop moving. It just feels good to move your limbs into odd positions. I want to go for a walk or something. Everything seems to have gotten darker in contrast, it's creepy but I don't mind in the least. I'm getting crazy ideas for drawings right now. I'm going to go draw with my boyfriend. He's having so much fun with just a pen and some paper!
8:30 Ok man, colors are melting everywhere I look, and we might go for a car ride and that excites me a bit. The metallic taste of my tongue ring is really noticable, almost gross. My boyfrineds buddy just left and talking is really fun right now. The computer screen's pretty. It's really hard to keep my mind on writing this. I want some pizza!
9:00 Everything is funny! We're trying to figure out what would be fun to do seeing as there's only me and him and this boring apartment. He's spin-kicking the air naked. Oh man, that was awesome. We're both getting really hot to the touch and naked seems like a good idea. We went to look in the mirror and our skin looked red, and our eyes were huge and black. I believe we have fevers, and my boyfriend is sweating his out. He says he feels perfect? My lips are burning a little. None of this hurts, but it is a bit uncomfortable.
9:25 We're having the most intense conversations, and my boyfriend keeps dancing around me. He can't stop moving, I love it. My sense of smell has hightened a lot. His body has a smell to it, the whole room does, not a bad smell either, it's just strong and it's a bit suffocating...almost like a car freshener. I want fresh air. My boyfriend rolled himself up in a blanket with his head sticking out, his dreads look like antennas. He looks like a snail, it's really cute. The cat keeps melting.
11:00 We watched television for a while and I am almost sober at this point, thought I feel really awake. Tv was fun, the people on the screen seemed to leave trails of themselves behind when they moved. Robot Chicken was a little hard to understand even though the skits last about 30 seconds each. I'm going to go talk to him some more.
1:00 We're awake but our bodies want to sleep. Were going to go lay down and watch a movie.
Alright so this is now the next morning. I actually had to re-write most of that because some of it wasn't even in english. We watched a movie and after that tried to sleep, it didn't work at all. We were starring at the ceiling until about 3:00am. Looking back, I believe my peak was around 9:00pm, 2 hours after we drank the tea.
I woke up at 10:00am feeling oddly energized. My mind's clear and I feel really happy. I find the mushroom tea was a lot more mellow than just eating them. The last time I ate mushrooms my trip wasn't as good, for days afterwards I felt mentally drained, and worst of all my stomach was cramped and aching for about a week afterwards.
In conclusion, I found the tea to worked much better and I had a great time. There were no stomach cramps, no after affects, nothing. It's a much better alternative and I would do it again anytime. Thanks for reading!
