So I got a package of pure DXM
powder a while back along with a large
amount of gelcaps. My scale didn't arrive at the same time, it came about
a week later.... but in that time I did something incredibly ignorant and
irresponsible. I filled a couple of caps up for a friend and myself,
smooshing the powder down to get a somewhat equal amount in each.
We took them, had a weird night, and woke up the next day with the
familiar "day after" effect that DXM typically leaves.
We decided to do some more - a lot more, for some reason. I crammed
two caps full of as much powder as I could fit in them (these are "00" caps
so they hold a decent amount). I had made some smaller caps earlier, we
took those too. We were both conscious long enough to set-up the 5
disc CD changer.... after that, my only memories of the event are opening
my eyes and hearing The Chemical Brothers "It Began in Afrika" and
seeing trees growing above me while elephants and tigers walked by. I
then opened my eyes again and believed that I was stuck in an igloo
somewhere. Then there was nothing - absolute blackness - and I came
to, out of what I can only describe as a comatose state.
It's approaching a year since that happened and I've only taken DXM a few
times, each time being a terrible experience. I also got my scale shortly
after that and tried to recreate what I made that day... the closest I've
come to remembering at all measures out to be a little over a gram.
Close to what Erowid lists as the known fatal dosage.
So my question is this... I have given the DXM a few months break now,
but I am concerned that my mind has "been ruined" on the stuff as the
only result from doing it in the time since has been me spacing out for
about 20 minutes and then waking up in the morning feeling like trash.
After giving my mind and body a break from it for a while, should I try it
