  T+ 0:48 50 mg oral Pharms - Tramadol (pill / tablet)


6:37p.m. Ė I took 50mg of Tramadol. Orally, with flavored water. I was going to use Dr. Pepper but caffeine doesnít sit well with me lately. I decided to only take one because of my inexperience with this drug, and also because Iím a huge lightweight. The only things Iíve eaten in the past few hours were a donut and some chips. So Iím hoping it gets in my system fast. I hate waiting.
Iím hoping it gets in my system fast. I hate waiting.

6:52 Ė Still nothing. Iíve got this lump in the back of my throat. I normally get this feeling when I take any kind of pill. Iím going to wait another twenty minutes or so and if I donít feeling anything Iíll take 25mg.

6:55 Ė Iíve got a burning sensation in my stomach. I assume itís just my stomach acid. Iím going to go have a cigarette and watch cops for a little bit.

6:56 Ė I feel like my eyes are really wide and open. I also feel like I donít need to blink. The words on the screen are kinda pulsating. It could just be psychological. Iím not sure if these are effects from the drug or just my mind.

7:02 Ė I still havenít gone out for my cigarette. Iím starting to become very uncoordinated. I ran into the vacuum like an idiot, and I keep forgetting where I put my phone. I broke my cigarette and it felt like a movie scene for some reason.

7:20 Ė Still nothing. Iím considering taking another whole pill. Not just half.

7:22 Ė I just want to stare at things. No blinking, just stare. It feels good to not move and just sit still.

7:25 Ė Took another 50mg. I have a feeling Iíll regret this decision.

7:31 Ė I still have this lump in the back of my throat. It feels as if the pill is stuck there, and wonít go in my stomach. Itís frustrating. But, listening to music sounds wonderful. It makes me chilled out and happy.

7:38 Ė Eating croutons. I have this theory that eating will get rid of the feeling in my throat. I really want waffles and cornbread, but I do not want to put a lot of effort into my food.

After that I stopped writing and decided to go to bed. I woke up at midnight and threw up. It was an awful experience but I thought it was because I took too many Tramadol and needed to get it out of my system or my body just didnít like the pain killers. Pain killers donít normally agree with my stomach. Every time I take them I always end up feeling shitty if I donít sleep when the comedown begins. I just like to stick with weed.

The next day I woke up around five thirty to get ready for the day and threw up again. I felt like I couldnít make it but I tried my best and forced myself to go to school. I ended up dry heaving at school during first period and just slept the next three periods until lunch came. After I ate I felt much better.

Iím never taking this drug again. It doesnít sit well with me. I could be allergic to it. Iím allergic to Oxycodone. I found that out the hard way. We all react differently to substances. I just hope that never happens to anyone else. It was an awful experience. Not one Iíd like to repeat.
