Chat log about LSD
<p> hey m i had a few questions regarding LSD and some mental health troubles <m> Sure, what's up? <p> how does LSD influence issues like heightened anxiety, cyclothymia, or abuse-related PTSD ? <p> asking for a friend, obviously <m> It's tough to explain since it varies person to person, time to time <p> considering it would be taken in a safe and not-anxiety-inducing environment at a well-rested state, is there a relatively general list of stuff that could happen ? <m> hmmm <m> Gimme a few moments to collect my thoughts on it <m> the long and short of it: -LSD, at rec doses, is very inertial. Once you're on a mental path, it's hard to get off of it - positive or negative --for many, this is a stabilizing effect -LSD floods serotonin receptors. Usually not a big deal, unlike DMT or MAOIs (if you take MAOIs, take SERIOUS precaution) --This usually causes a lot of the "good feeling" but also can be fight or flight response initiating -LSD often allows people to work through things in a harm-reducing way, esp w.r.t. PTSD, anxieties, and insecurities, but this is barely studied and very anecdotal and person to person -control your environment, and have a way to escape negative thought loops if they occur. For day of things: -WRITE ON YOUR ARM THESE THINGS: 1. Drink water. 2. Have a snack at <six hours after you drop> 3. This is a drug. This is not permanent. This will end. 4. Be happy :) -Wear your coziest clothing -soft blankets -eat a big meal before you drop -clean your spaces -Hide mirrors. tl;dr - LSD floods serotonin as its main mechanism. This causes euphoria AND fight or flight responses depending on the setting and occurances. Take precaution based on that It's also not a miracle drug. Don't expect to have it all fixed on one trip obv <p> Noted <p> I'm surprised it could maybe help with... My issues <m> Most psychs provide a path to dealing with psychological issues in an almost clinical manner <m> and some of these are... painful experiences - mostly with DMT and psilocybin studies - that require burning bright to use up the fuel, so to speak <p> Okay <p> (And i expect a good idea to be keeping my urgent needs cards by me if i ever try that, to be able to communicate without words) <m> Start with a 100ug dose and, if you don't trust your source 100%, get a test kit <m> nBOMEs are often sold as LSD and they will fuck you up <p> Which kind of test kit would be good, and where to acquire? <m> You can get them legally <m> Test kits aren't illegal <m> a quick google should find you a legal source <p> i was more wondering if some test kits would mistake some shit for lsd <p> (hence "which kind") <m> Searching LSD test kit is the way to go <p> fair <m> I've never used one personally, since I've always used trusted sources or been too college to care <p> i don't know of any local trusted sources, but I don't intend to try before moving the fuck away from here, so not before a few years from now <m> There's also a decent way to know if you have tainted tabs - LSD has no taste. If it goes on your tongue, and it tastes bitter, immediately spit it out and wash down with a lot of water <m> nbomes are bitter as hell <p> okay <p> good last-check then <m> mhm <p> (i will archive this chat in my papers, which has public access, but will remove all nicknames from it, for info) <m> Note to the audience: I'm all about harm reduction and safe use, so for anyone who has questions about psychadelics in general, please ask and get the scoop before you dive <o> when r u gonna chaperone me on a trip <p> Well, thanks a lot for the info! <m> oh, that reminds me of one more thing: <m> Personal thing: I really do not like being around sober people while tripping <o> do you think it's better to be alone or with someone else tripping with you? <m> Depends on the person <m> It kinda falls on the introvert/extrovert line from my anecdotal gathering
