Friday the 18th of September 2015, I found myself in a hospital bed in the emergency wing, hooked up to an IV to detoxify my blood. That took about 8 hours. I took Hawaiien baby woodrose.
I started at around 10:30pm. I scraped the husk off carefully from 5 seeds and crushed them in my mouth and let my saliva work at it. Around midnight (I had expected to trip already within 30-60 mins), I just felt really cramped and sick. I walked back home with my boyfriend and started to feel jittery, as in when I'd try to sit down on the carpet it was like my legs were jello and I'd just halfway fall into it. There was a point where it felt too bad and I just went to bed hoping it would pass, but I started twitching uncontrollably and even my speech was altered. After about two hours of twitching and it not stopping, my boyfriend called a friend to drive me to the hospital.
After about two hours of twitching and it not stopping, my boyfriend called a friend to drive me to the hospital.
I had intense mood swings, switching almost every minute, and they had to carry me to the car because moving my hand even was hard.
They wheeled me in the hospital and the twitches had almost stopped but as soon as the doctor's took over, I puked all over 4 times in a row. I instantly felt better :D They carried me onto a board then the bed and removed my clothes while my boyfriend was registering me. Then they hooked me up to an ecg and did 4 tests throughout the night I was told as well as blood tests. My mood swings were still present :p
They hooked me up to an IV for the night and monitored my heart rate. I came in at about 122 bpm. It steadied at around 109 bpm until about 10 in the morning I'm assuming and I got let out at 1045. After they had me all hooked up and my boyfriend was allowed to stay with me, the high instantly hit and I was intensely happy :) It was really funny because I'd think of something worrying like is my heart going to stay like that forever... and I'd get all teared up and about to cry then I'd look over at him and istantly have the biggest smile xD that happened for a few hours. Finally we fell asleep and I left in the morning after a saline injection. The doctor told me to get another ecg the following week and come back.
I went to the doctor today. I now have first, possibly second degree heart block. That means the signal for my heart to beat is slowed or disrupted from the upper to the lower chambers. I feel dizzy and faint more or less often. Further testing tomorrow will tell me what the other heart problem was.
The reason I wanted to try it was for the visuals. I didn't hallucinate.
NOT worth it.
