Last night was my second experience with bath salts. To be perfectly honest I was hoping to buy some crack, but it was not to be. So, even though my first time wasn't all that pleasant, I picked some up.

Sometimes I do things I know could be detrimental; almost even masochistic. You see, I'm Bipolar 2 with General Anxiety Disorder, some agoraphobia and PTSD. What's wrong with this picture? :)

I should add that I take Cymbalta [an SNRI] and Propanolol for my disorder. I thought I read that SSRIs aren't safe with the salts, something about Serotonin Syndrome, which can be life threatening. I can honestly say that was the last thing on my mind.

I set up muted lighting in the apartment, and thought I'd wait a while to determine if playing music would disturb me. Then I opened the package and put some in the glass pipe. I don't have much experience with meth pipes (I avoid meth. For me, it's like an invitation to a three day paranoia trip with no euphoria), but it got in there.

I took a hit. There was a rush with a brief sense of well being. It definitely mimicked my meth experiences, but with a little less shakiness. After that I found myself craving more, much like crack. But the odd thing was, I wasn't really enjoying myself. I just felt the compulsion to get more.
I wasn't really enjoying myself. I just felt the compulsion to get more.


I stayed up all night with the pipe in my mouth, looking up a million things on the internet that seemed relevant, even crucial at the time. They weren't.

I'm sorry I don't have war stories about seeing the devil and demons. I read that many of the bath salts are supposed to create a hallucinatory state similar to MDMA. That wasn't the case with me. It was uncomfortable in my skin, yet I wanted to get speedier. However, I never felt too spun or psychotic.

It's now the following evening. I haven't eaten in two days, nor do I care to. I'm not sure I'll sleep tonight; still antsy but managing. Like a typical tweaker, my mouth has been moving nonstop. My tongue will hurt tomorrow!

For a last minute replacement, bath salts were better than nothing. The cravings continue. I have to tell myself that it really wasn't worth......but I want it. It really does feel like it would be easy to slip into a dependence, but that's just my opinion.

In the future I think I'll pass on bath salts. I don't know what they are, and if I'm going to get busted, I'll make it weed instead :)

Thanks

Maybe they'll make a psilocybin spice or something. Now that would be truly worthwhile.
