yesterday I had a really strange experience and, now that I'm in my right mind, it seems very much like i had a really serious high. I've never been high before, so it's hard for me to say. I thought maybe it was a combination of things i took or something, but nothing seems to add up.

About 3:30 or 4:00 am, i took an over the counter sleep aid to go to sleep. But i woke up about 8:00 am and couldn't get back to sleep so i got up to find something that might help me go back to sleep. the only thing i found that didn't say "non-drowsy" was some Tussin DM. So i took a dose of that and also less than a shot of vodka. I know that sound ridiculous, but i was exhausted and desperate to go back to sleep.

I woke up about 11:00 or 11:30 and felt fine. I ate lunch probably about noon. I had pasta with mushrooms. About 30 minutes after i ate lunch, i started feeling crazy. i was lying in the bed and couldn't remember getting in my bed. i couldn't tell if i was asleep or awake. i was having all sorts of crazy thoughts and things running through my head. i laid there thinking, i must be asleep and dreaming. but all the while i was having these contious thoughts. finally i got up.

without going through all the details of the day, here were my main symptoms: i felt dizzy, got really hot, time seemed to go extremely slow...like hours longer than reality, i kept loosing awareness....like i would all of a sudden come-to and not remember how i had gotten to where i was or what i had been doing, i would sometimes be vaguely aware of what i was doing but it would be a totally different experince in my head, i couldn't tell what things really happened and what was just in my head, i felt numb all over, my face and limbs felt heavy, and my mood was going crazy...like sometimes i would start crying uncontrollably to the point i thought i was hyperventillating, and also sometimes my jaw would quiver like my teeth were chattering uncontrollably.

all of this lasted somewhere from 2 to 3 hours i think. i told one of my friends about it, and she said something about mushroom fungus. i thought it was weird that she said that and i had eaten mushrooms for lunch. i asked my mom if she had felt weird after eating the same thing. she said she had gotten really dizzy and hot and her face felt strange. she had felt weird enough to not feel comfortable going anywhere by herself. So then i thought maybe there was something wrong with the mushrooms. it would make sense that my symptoms were more severe than hers because she doesn't like mushrooms and mostly picks around them. i, on the other hand, love them and pick out all of them i can find to eat. but they were just regular store-bought mushrooms. i don't know how that could have caused anything. I also thought maybe it had been a combination of medicines i had taken or the alcohol, but it was so long after i took anything that i started having symptoms and i didn't take anything serious or an excessive amount of anything.

i would really like to figure out what caused this. i never want it to happen again. i felt like i was totally out of my mind and could hardly tell what was reality.
