My girlfriend and I were drinking one Saturday night in my backyard when I decided to consume the Angel Trumpet thinking it wouldn't work because they were wilted (a bush grows in my backyard.) This was about 11pm. Later when we were in bed I do not know the exact time but I suddenly heard her asking me questions. I was answering and she kept asking me. This went on for about ten minutes when she finally rolled over and asked who I was talking to. I said her and she said she never said a word. This is when I realized the drug must've kicked in (this was my first time taking it, I had researched but didn't know what to expect.)

Unfortunately my brain didn't understand that no one was speaking and I kept hearing her voice clearly and I kept responding out loud but she wasn't saying anything. Eventually she told me to shut up, she had forgotten I had taken the flowers thinking I was still drunk as she was herself. About this time the hallucinations started. Black dots flashed before my eyes. When I closed them I saw everything clearly as if I never shut them. I made the motion to unscrew the light bulb out of my fan and throw it away but when I opened my eyes, my hands were over the garbage can but nothing was in them. I also hallucinated that my roommate walked into my room and asked where my other roommate was, I told him I didn't know and again my girlfriend asked who I was talking to.

I knew the voices were in my head so I tried not to answer but they were so clear I wasn't sure if she was actually talking or not. That is all I remember. The most unnerving part happened in the morning. When I woke up I could not walk straight at all. My body constantly felt like I was falling down and I swayed uncontrollably but it wasn't a dizzy feeling. When I looked at my digital watch my eyes could not focus at all. All I saw was a smear. I looked at my computer clock and it was the same thing. That was the scariest part of the trip.

Later I found out from my roommate (and I have absolutely no recollection of this and I'm glad) I had gone into his room and tried to spoon him and his girlfriend, then I fought him for his own covers, said something incomprehensible and walked out (I guess at this point I was peaking) He said this occurred at around 5:30am. A couple hours into the day my vision finally returned to normal and so did my posture. All in all I did not enjoy the trip because I felt no euphoria and it's kind of creepy hearing voices.
