Scary First Time
T= 0 minutes: Swallowed 1 20 mg pill. Read the newspaper for about an hour, didn’t feel any effects.
T= 1 hour: Swallowed another 20 mg pill, then promptly smoked 3 bowls of cannabis (each was laced with 1 to 2 drops of hash oil) The room was around 100°F and was comfortable with my fan on its lowest setting.
T= 1 hour & 10 minutes: The pot had kicked in. I still wasn’t aware if the Ritalin had kicked in our not, but I was a bit shaky and had troubles packing the third bowl.
T= 1 hour & 25 minutes: The Ritalin had definitely kicked in while I was smoking the third bowl. My heart was racing and I couldn’t sit still at all. I finished the third bowl, and then laid down and listen to some music. (bad cotton mouth)
T= 1 hour and 40 minutes: I couldn’t concentrate on anything and my body was spasming uncontrollably (I tried to stop it, but to no avail…every part of me was twitching hardcore). At this time, I began to feel incredibly hot (like a really bad fever) and turned up the fan to its highest setting. I also began to hallucinate and hear things. My heart began to race even faster and I got this paranoid belief that I WAS going to have a heart attack and die.
T= 2 hours: The hallucinations were getting more vivid, I couldn’t walk straight, it felt as if the whole house was shaking.
I couldn’t walk straight, it felt as if the whole house was shaking.
I ran to stand underneath the AC (it also felt like I was moving super fast) because I was burning up. After sitting under the AC for a while, I go and ask my sister some questions about how I was acting and stuff. If you’ve ever played Sims 2, and made your sims drink coffee, you know how they just stand there all jittery and shaking? That’s how she described me.
T= 2 hours and 10 minutes: I took a cold shower because I could not stand the heat. I was still hallucinating and hearing things. I kept on feeling that I was going to pass out and drown in the shower.
T= 2 hours and 40 minutes: I got out of the shower, and got the munchies bad. I went to the living room (which was in AC) and ate like crazy. I still couldn’t control the shaking and twitching, and I was still burning up. Everything was giving me a headache (I resisted the impulse to pop some ibuprofen). The hallucinations were beginning to calm down.
T= 3 hours: I laid down again in my room, and stopped caring about the burning fever. I stopped thinking that I was going to die of a heart attack or pass out. The hallucinations had stopped, and I was beginning to come down from the weed. I was still convulsing.
T= 3 hours and 30 minutes: The high from the weed is gone by this time. But the Ritalin was still going strong. The convulsions/shaking, and fever kept on going for a long while.
T= 4 hours: I laid down in my room and felt my eyes starting to close. I feel asleep without even noticing it.
T= 15 hours: I managed to sleep for 10 hours, but I had to wake up for school (I felt like I could of slept for the whole day). I was incredibly hungry, couldn’t concentrate at all. I was slightly shaky and was at a normal body temp. I had horrible cotton mouth for the rest of the day.
T= 16 hours: The shakiness stopped, but I still couldn’t concentrate well.
T= 18 hours: I felt completely normal (could concentrate and everything), but couldn’t remember what had happened in the past week (still don’t!).
