T+ 0:00
9 tablets oral MDA
  T+ 24:00   smoked Cannabis


At the time of this experience I had consumed every weekend for a year 2 MDA pills, sometimes even more. I had a ready supply of ecstasy and my source can supply bulk so I had stocked up on about 30 pills. My substance consumption relay on marijuana dosage every day, 2 LSD trips, 4 DXM trips, 1 mushroom trip, a couple of narcotics. I was not a heavy drug user but I always wanted to escape so I always found a score. I was always big on the electronic music since it always boosted the high and I was always cooped in the house because of strict parenting.

Anyways the tripped starting in the early evening on a Saturday night where I usually conserved an E for recreational use or 2, but this night was different. I had prepared for the night with trippy visuals, trippy electronic music, and my imaginative mind. (Note: on previous MDMA or MDA experience I was accustomed to tripping). This night was I was able to score 20 pills of the famous Lady G's in our area, which contained MDA.

I popped a pill at around 9pm and waited about 30 minutes for the effect. This night I didn't want the feeling to disappear so by morning I had popped a total of 8. So my mindset was feeling bliss and was so under the influence, l decided to pop another. This is where things got fuzzy. I was imagining spiders. These spiders were crawling towards me. Then they backed up as if they were scared of me. They looked so realistic that I almost feared for my life. Being that I had to go to the bathroom, when I sat down, everything looked like miniature bugs. All flying around the furniture. After that I went to lay down, my door kept morphing from a female dancing in a gown to a lion prancing around. I was still in a state of reality just everything was imaginative. Finally I fell asleep and woke up the next day for school.

After school, my friends and I decided to smoke some of my kush that I always kept around. We went to my friends house and I went to use the bathroom. All of a sudden it felt like one of those times when you get up too quickly and you black out. While my friends were laying me down on the couch it felt like I was at home laying in my bed until it was my time to hit the bong.

Retrospective of experience: While I've never really had a come down on ecstasy, this experience was a changing point. I still kept using E after this but I stopped when I noticed they were adding other chemicals in the pills. It has been 5 years since. I have strayed away from using drugs especially E. Occasionally for that special occasion once a year or two I have a blast but for the most part I have stayed away. I don't know about any damages from my E experience only from the occasional nervousness I get but with my career I don't have room to be. I've never had and panic attacks or mood swings but also I don't feel completely the same.
