This past Saturday, a friend and I decided to make an trip to a mutual friend's lakehouse about an hour away from where we live. Our friend's brothers had about 30 friends already up there, with a bar's worth of alchohol and much more(literally). We drank beer throughout the day along with the occasional white russian or random mixed drink. By nighttime, I found a nice dude who was offering out some ecstacy from his personal stash. I've taken E a handful of times before, and in high doses (several pills/doses of molly) at music festivals. He gave me a pill with that he described to have 'not amazing/not bad' affects. I popped it and then went about my business for the following hour.

I played a game of beer pong, and had another mixed drink or two. I then bought 3 ecstacy pills through another guy because I was drunk and too impatient to wait for the effects of the first pill. I took 2 1/2 of the second batch. Dumb. The first pill kicked in and enhanced the social lubricant effects of the alcohol. I continued to drink until it all came rushing in. I've never had such an intense reaction to any drug. It was pleasant for a little while. I had the most intense closed eye visuals (and only) that I've ever had from E. It became negative after a while, because I could barely carry on conversations, and became increasingly more intoxicated (by the e). Then I had eye wiggles (which i've never had happen before) This was unsettling to say the least. I was having a lot of trouble keeping my eyes under control. When I wasn't having eye wiggles, I couldn't help but cross my eyes (or rather eye as I have had one eye that's weaker than the other since birth). This was embarrasing, but mostly just scary.

Soon after I realized my upper lip was swollen, which has happened before when I took a crushed up pill in my mouth (like the half pill i took this night). The only thing I can figure out here is that I am allergic to the pills direct contact to my lip or mouth. I really don't know. I passed out not soon after (because I think I simply couldn't handle the dose mentally or physically). The next day I was really out of it all day, and my lip is still swollen (monday). I'm feeling a little more aware and I feel as if my brain has almost fully recovered from the experience. I took 15 mg of adderall today (my normal daily dosage) and I went to work like normal. Besides a little sluggishness and fatigue, I feel better. I don't really feel depressed like one might expect. I guess I need to use some better judgement when using alcohol and e again. I plan on taking it without any other substances (including alcohol) the next time I do it. I just really wondered about the long/short term effects of an OD(which is what I would consider this experience). I'm going to take it easy for a long time before I ever take it again. The biggest danger of mixing E and alcohol (besides the obvious physical dangers) is the loss of judgement of how much I was actually taking. This is true for every drug, but especially true with ecstacy since 9 times out of 10 I don't actually know what I'm taking or how much.
