I would like to start this article by stating that I lost my job and my home last week which opened me up to a new way of thinking. All semblances of normalcy and stability are now gone which opened me up to trying this experience not to harm myself but in the hopes that I would achieve a feeling of bliss that I haven't been able to duplicate since I was a DXM addict many years ago (I've hit all plateaus, have met god, he actually appeared to me in my wall on my bedroom door, other beings of light and the stories I could tell...), this was before I had a child and met a wonderful woman who has been a blessing in my life for the past ten years. Knowing that my family will be in peril and potentially homeless soon certainly changed my perspective on life. I am home alone as I never do this were my family home and anything I do would put them in potential harm.

I am a regular Kratom user (I've been taken this miracle plant for 5 years with no negative side affects except constipation. I normally take 15-22.5G per day in dosages of 10, one half gram capsules at a time. I have no Benzo tolerance, whatsoever.

I took eight .25MG Xanax at 1:30PM today EST.

10 Minutes into the experience I started to feel drowsy and a little relaxed but nothing I'd consider as overwhelming. I then took the Kratom (Malay green variant) 15 minutes after initial dose. I will update this in 15 minute increments.

2:00PM - My legs are heavy but I can move around quite easily and can still type and think clearly. I've been in MENSA since I was 9 and I pride myself on my mental acuity and sharpness. I find myself migrating to listening to 'The Suburbs' by Arcade Fire but again I feel no enhanced level of anything. The music is enjoyable but nothing outside my normal realm of perception. I'm starting to feel as if I'm writing this just for the sake of keeping my mind active. I'm going to try walking around a bit to determine if motor skills are affected. They do not appear to be so. I took a nice pinch of dipping tobacco to keep my focus. I've been dipping for years and it helps keep my brain focused.

2:15PM - It's now been 45 minutes and I still feel only mildly sedated. The normal analgesic feeling I get from Kratom (I prefer Maeng Da but they only had Malay in my area today) does not appear existent at this point. I have found my music interested has shifted towards Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, and Metallica which tells me I may be getting a little frustrated with the lack of any feelings of substantial. My mood tends to choose my music preferences. I am considering adding perhaps another .50 MG of Xanax and perhaps 2.5G of Kratom should nothing change in the next fifteen minutes.

2:30 PM - (One hour into this) - The mellowness seems to be wearing down already so I decided to take two more .25 Xanax and 5 more half grams Kratom. Also still dipping my Grizzly long cut wintergreen hoping for something more at this point. Aside from a little difficulty moving without dizziness, no noticeable affects. I can still type, think clearly and do tasks like making my bed, cleaning etc.

2:45 PM - The only noticeable effects at this point is that time seems to move a bit faster. Songs I know are only five or six minutes long seem to be much shorter but my sound and perception seems perfectly normal. At this point I am considering adding a strong dose of coffee to see if I can kick start something. No Euphoria whatsoever, just a sense of being tired. Disappointing thus far.

3:00 PM - Still nothing aside from the same old same. Disappointed to say the least.
4:00 PM - I feel almost perfectly normal now. What a waste of time and plants. I could have grabbed a six pack of shitty beer and had a better experience.
