I Feel Like I Didn't Shower for a Week
Citation:   theAngryLittleBunny. "I Feel Like I Didn't Shower for a Week: An Experience with Hydromorphone (exp113502)". Oct 12, 2019.

4 mg insufflated Hydromorphone (ground / crushed)
I'm a very curious person and wanted to try a few of every kind of drugs. I've already had my fair share of experiences with several amphetamines, benzos, barbiturates, dissociatives (N2O and PCE), LSD and some other things, but I still haven't tried an opioid besides Tramadol, but I don't really count that.

So today I was able to get a 4mg capsule of Hydromorphone. I took of the light blue cap, poured out the breads and crushed them, then I snorted it within about 20 minutes. About 30 minutes in I started to feel something, maybe a bit sleepy and relaxed. Over the next 40 to 50 minutes the effects kept getting stronger. I always heard that opioids make you feel like you're being hugged or experience some kind of affection, and I completely agree with that. A bit into the effects it reminded me of the feeling I would get when I would hug someone I really like. I also got this warm feeling that you're supposed to experience with opioids, however I found it to be kinda annoying and opened the window to let cool air in.

When I would get up to do something I noticed how heavy my body felt, it was like as if gravity was about 50% stronger then normal, I was even a bit afraid of falling over when walking because my balance was somewhat impaired. The Hydromorphone overall gave me a odd but weirdly pleasant body feeling, I felt a slight pressure in my head. I also pinched myself a few times but I didn't really noticed that my sensitivity to pain decreased, neither did I notice much of an anxiety relieve like I would with benzos or barbiturates. For the rest of the experience I just got some apple juice and watched videos on my PC. I felt quite good but completely demotivated and sleepy.
I felt quite good but completely demotivated and sleepy.
My mental capacity also was quite impaired, I tried to build the Hydromorphone molecule with a molecule model set which was extremely challenging.

Around there the by far most annoying side effect set in, the infamous opioid itch. I started scratching myself everywhere, mostly in my face. I felt like I didn't shower for several days. I'm writing this as the Hydromorphone is wearing off and I'm still scratching myself like crazy. Another side effect was some very slight nausia, which was surprising because besides Kratom and 2M2B nothing ever made me nausious, but this didn't really bother me.

At about 90 minutes in was the peak of the effects, I felt like I could immediately fall asleep in my chair if I wanted to, I had to lie down in my bed for about 20 minutes. At this point music was kinda annoying. It's kinda weird, I felt happy but completely unmotivated to do anything, I wouldn't even get this from barbiturates. However, when it started to wear off the excitement about having tried my first real opioid pushed me to start writing this report.

It's about two and a half hours after dosing now, and I still have some light effects, and unlike with stuff like Mephedrone I'm okay with it ending. It wasn't overwhelmingly amazing but still a quite nice experience and I'm not opposed to trying some more opioids in the future or even using them occasionally. But I guess that's what every heroin addict said after their first time, so we'll see if I end up homeless under a bridge in a few months.
