First Day of School
Amitriptyline (Elavil)

150 mg oral Pharms - Amitriptyline (pill / tablet)
This happened my first day of class my senior year. I was not a heavy drug user and pretty easily effected by anything I took. I was given 6 25mg pills of Elavil from a friend and thought I would experiment with them. I took all 6 about 15 minutes before I went to school and could not have been any stupider.

By the time I figured out which class I was supposed to go to first, (which was difficult considering the fog my mind was already in) it was clear to me that it was going to be a bad day. My eyelids were heavy and my hearing was not functioning correctly. I could hear my teacher and my friends but nothing made sense and I didn't have the ability to respond. Shortly before the first hour was over I was nodding off and the rest of the day was a giant blur. I am not sure how I made it from class to class because I did not know my schedule yet. I must have had a friend helping me but I'm not sure who. The only thing I remember is waking up at every bell and falling back asleep in a new class room.

I have no idea what I did at lunch (or where I slept) and the only mildly interesting thing that happened was I saw the science lab skeleton walking in the hallway at one point. After the day was over I somehow survived the ride home with out interrogation from my parents and slept the rest of the night until the next morning. I still felt groggy but was able to function and nothing was ever said about my strange behavior on the first day of school.
