I will make this as short and to the point as I can. I took 14 pills of Dramamine after school one day. I made sure to get everything taken care of so that when I was on the drug I wouldn't have to worry about chores. Chores suck.
I knew dramamine makes you tired. This was my second try at it. The first time I took 10. I set up lots of caffine drinks and apples because they keep you awake. I was in my room and the bathroom whitch is right next to my room. I had no contact face to face with anyone. My enviorment and my mindset are great.
The drug took effect around 7:30 at night. I told a pair of my buddies about what I was doing over the Internet so I had a direct connection to them all night. At first it was a serious drowsy feeling and by 8:00 I was almost asleep at my desk. I decided to take a shower at that point to keep me awake.
I got up and walked really really slowly to the shower. I was walking so slowly it made me laugh out loud. When I was in the shower I kept thinking that my shirt was on. I would tell myself I'm an idiot and I would start to take it off but then it wasn't there. That happened like three times. Each time I would tell myself not to do it anymore and then 3 minutes later I would try to take my shirt off again. The whole time my shirt was on the counter out side. I had really lost control.
At that point I left the shower, after putting all my DRY cloths back on. I went into my room and tried the best to talk to my friends. I kept losing track of what I was saying and my friends didn't get it at all. I remember the phrase 'your saying completely random shit.' I was talking about girls one-second and then music the other. I gave up on that and sat back in my chair.
This is when the 'shit hit the fan' so to say. I was looking at a poster and in the corner of my eye there were hands coming through the cracks in my door. At a second glance they were the hinges. After that I talked to one of my friends who's head was right next to my computer. We started to get angry with each other and then I thought about what I was doing and he disappeared. (Disappeared is a bad term. Its more like he just seized to exist.) I was terribly drowsy and I remember talking to two other things but I don't remember the details at all. Somehow I just went to sleep I don't remember doing it at all, however.
The next day I felt miserable. I failed at talking to my dad in the mourning, luckily he just thought I stayed up to late, the truth was I couldn't keep track of the conversation at all. He would ask me a question and I would forget the answer halfway through my speech. That happened all day with friends and teachers until about 12:00 in the afternoon.
I talked to my friend that I had thought I talked to the previous night. I was pissed at this kid. He had no idea and I didn't either but I couldn't help but hold what he had said the night before against him. I hated him for this conversation that he had no control over.
Right now I'm sitting at my house writing this story instead of being at his birthday party. I have lost all desire to have friends. I have become a loner. My school work is getting better, however. I used to be fairly messy but now I'm a clean freak. My mind got screwed with that night and I regret it pretty bad.
This is all the truth. I swear on everything that means anything to me. However, I am not saying that it is a bad idea to trip on Dramamine. I feel like I have grown up a lot since this experience.
