I bought what I was told by a trusted friend was Molly. .05 grams would get me rollin for hours. I was hooked. It soon progressed to an almost daily routine and the amount necessary steadily climbed to about 1 gram a day. I became obsessive over looking for bugs on my skin, on my dogs, and in my carpet. I developed a phobia from this obsession. I could spend over 3 hours just looking at my leg, hunting for the bugs(s) that had taken over my life along with this wonder powder and cocaine. Hygiene, food, sleep and hydration had all been put on the backburner. I went up to 8 days no sleep, 2 days without food and was constantly thirsty but I never did anything to fix those problems because I didn't have a single care in the world but my powders. I was consumed. I made excuses to keep getting it, lying to my girlfriend, to my friends and parents.

One particular evening, I blew a half a gram of coke mixed with half a gram of this new shit in less than 3 hours. I had been feeling great all day because I had been 'rollin' nuts all day. I had been productive, my gf and I had a great time together. I went outside for the usual pre 'sleep' cigarette. I felt a bug crawling on me, which at this point was not out of the ordinary. This time I saw it though. I stood, too scared to move, as I watched what I believed was a parasite invade my body. I lost touch with reality. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with delusions of parasitosis. I didn't believe it and made my parents take me to the hospital for bloodwork just to make sure.

At that point it had been 2 hours since I saw the parasite. I was sobering up and passed out in the exam room. I woke up being taken by a nurse to the hospitals psychiatric center. I stayed there for 4 days. Apparently everything I had been feeling seeing and hearing were all hallucinations and delusions. Distant voices that were never distinguishable, paranoia, crawling and itching skin, rashes, and wriggling hair all over. I had a psychotic break and went into a drug induced psychosis. I am now diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar 1 with somatic and auditory delusions and hallucinations, paranoid schizoaffective disorder and liver and kidney malfunctions ultimately leading to failure. I found out within the last 24 hours what my buddy and I had thought was Molly was really bath salts. I got all my friends, gf, and some coworkers hooked on it too. I'm high on it as I type this. I flushed it down the toilet already. The symptoms I experience may never go away.

In all, this stuff was fun to do but ultimately not worth it. I am currently paranoid, hallucinating and convinced there is a bug on my legs. It is super addictive and potentially fatal. I am learning the hard way. Please be careful, I will never be the same person that I was two months ago.
