LSD and Lithium: Seizure
March 13th: I was hanging out with Ralph, Ignatius, Wilson, Autolycus, and Penelope in Ralph and Ignatius' dorm room. Quite unexpectedly, we were all offered LSD by Autolycus, who had come into it that same day. Although I had not had any prior experience with psychedelics, I was convinced that I would be fine due to my frequent use of DXM and IV opiates/cocaine. What was a little acid?
Since I was broke, I scurried back to my room to get some methadone to trade to Autolycus. On returning I saw that it came in the form of shock-tart candy, on which were visible the dried imprint of the LSD. I ate three of the candies, took a quick hit of marijuana, and waited for the effects.
About 30 minutes after ingestion, the visuals hit me harder than anything I had seen before or have seen since, including 1200mg DXM and 5 grams of cubensis. Absolutely nothing was stationary, every particle of the room was darting around in little circles and occasionally widening with bursts of color. Yet I already felt very uncomfortable and kept assuring myself that it was just a new experience to immerse myself in. I was very antsy and suggested that some of us go to get cigarettes from Ralph's car. So Ralph, Ignatius and I went to get them. Leaving the room, I was immediately aware that the normally faded carpet in the hall was shockingly bright and pulsating up and down the length of the hall. It felt good to be out of the room and we went down the parking lot without incident.
As we were walking up the car, a car alarm went off in another car just behind us. The strident, piercing noise terrified me and I saw with horror that in the rear window of the car a demonic panda bear was grinning maniacally at me. I was at the end of my wits and thought it was an ambush meant to kill us. Evidently it was just some sort of key-interference from the remote lock device. Still very scared, the three of us were returning to the dorms when we heard inhuman screeching sounds from the adjacent forest. Scared shitless, I mustered the last of my waning confidence to tell them to fuck off or to come out. It was six or seven of our friends, Wilson among them, who had decided to have some fun with our trip. To this day I cannot understand the mindset behind fucking with people who are tripping. In any event, we returned with cigarettes to the dorm.
When we got back, the five of us decided to go outside for a smoke. Throughout the experience I was scared and uncomfortable, but it was nothing I could not suppress at need. As we smoked, however, the voices of my friends sped up. They sounded unmistakably like Alvin the Chipmunk.
Apparently at that point I whirled around and fell violently on the pavement and proceeded to seize. The next thing I remember is being loaded into an ambulance with all my friends looking on in disbelief. The ride was hellish. Everything was so very white and unnecessarily loud, and they strapped me down and stuck IVs in my hand! Why on earth would they not go for the elbow-crook veins?!? I was also convinced that the whole affair was like a level in Super Smash Brothers Brawl and that it was the game that caused my seizure, for which I would be the legendary downfall of Nintendo.
The next morning, I was told that I had almost died as a result of combination of LSD, Lithium, and Bupropion and that I had been seizing and then babbling nonsense for the entire night.
