I have a high tolerance for chemicals and can have a good time and keep myself under control. In my search for alternative medicines I discovered Ayahuasca and began to experiment. I found by putting mimosa into capsules. I can down the amount needed and not get as nauseated or throw up. I had taken mimosa and syrian rue before several times and enjoyed it. I then realized that I had left the syrian rue in seeds and swallowed them whole. I took quite a few grams but because they were in seed form they did not have the effect. So I realized they needed to be ground up. I took 12 size “0” capsules of mimosa powder I then downed 10 size “0” capsules of syrian rue. I then sloshed approximately 5 grams of caapi down as that had seemed to ad a nice effect in times past.

After an hour or so I didn't feel much. Myself being antsy I downed 6 more capsules of syrian rue and I think 4 more capsules of mimosa. The feeling started to come on about a half hour later. I got up and turned on the light and saw a bug and was going to smash it but I was too wasted and tired to do anything so I let him go. By know my vision was getting weird when looking around the room.

A short time later I went into a laughing hysteria. My wife was asleep and my sister-in-law as well. Neither one knew I was experimenting. I was laughing so hard and couldn't quit
I was laughing so hard and couldn't quit
I had to go outside so I didn't wake them up. I sat on the back steps with my nose running out of control. At one point I thought my nose was bleeding because I could feel liquid running down the back of my throat, eyes watering, laughing inconceivably. This lasted for way over an hour. Then my life seemed to be repeating itself. I would tell myself over and over that I needed to turn the air conditioner off. Yet I never did. I would just rethink everything over and over again. This happened with everything I thought about. I got pissed because because I kept thinking the same thoughts over and over again.

Then it turned for the worse. I began to think as I was laughing that I was going to become one of the overdosed ones that are perma-fried. Yet in my hysteria even that was funny for a bit. I thought that I may never be the same again. Then I began to feel like I was going to die. At one point I kept thinking on it so much that I was pissed that it didn't just hurry up so I could get it over with. I wanted to fight for life. I thought about what the hospital would do. That they would empty my stomach. I thought over and over that I needed to go throw up, yet I never did. I came very close to dialing 911 or waking my wife and telling her what I did and have her take me to the hospital.

This lasted for at least a couple more hours until I finally began to come down enough that I could just lay there and begin to feel that my life was not going to end and that I might not actually act like a infant the rest of my life.

I don't know if anyone has ever died by doing Ayahuasca. It seems pretty safe. Yet what I do know is that I was convinced I was going to die. I can do different herbs, etc. in large quantities and have a good time. “Be careful”. I once read that this is not a recreational drug. I thought they were stupid. Now I know different. I wish I had someone with me to calm me down and help me and had started off with small doses!
