Took 5 seeds at around 10:20pm after fasting for about 6 1/2 hours. Within 5 minutes experienced painful stomach cramps and 15 min later vomited several times and felt slightly better.
I'd read that after being sick the good part of the trip should come on but this was not to be. Had depressing insights into my negative behaviour and personal relationships but found it difficult to keep a thought in my head or string a sentence together and was feeling exhausted with sore stomach. At about 11:15pm vomited again, in a lot of pain, more dry retching after everything in my stomach was gone. Went to lie down again but although very strained and tired could not sleep. Muscles clenching in legs, buttocks and shoulders resulting in cramps. Difficulty moving (getting up or walking) or rather difficulty willing body to move, almost like paralysis, as if I couldn't contact my motor cortex and tell it to listen to me. Lots of shaking and twitching, mild convulsions. Felt very poisoned and sick. Then a short respite with period of giggles and calmness but nausea and cramps returned soon. Managed to get to the kitchen after trying to get there for like half an hour or more and ate a bit of apple and dried fruit to see if the food would perhaps absorb/decrease the effects of the seeds but didn't really help. Now followed absolutely agonizing hours of intense stomach and muscle cramps, nausea and shaking.
I felt seriously ill and thought that perhaps I had been fatally poisoned. Couldn't sleep till 4am. Awoke 3 hours later utterly exhausted. Don't recall dreaming. Phew. Man, that was an ordeal. Not again.
