I’m 19 years and have been smoking spice since I was 15.
I have been having a really hard time breathing, so I went into the doctor. They thought it was pneumonia, but I went in 3 weeks later and the spot on my lung is not going away.
I talked to a specialist, and he wants me to come in and see him. But due to my insurance, I can’t right now.
I told him I smoke spice and he is really worried. He says what could be going on is I could have chemical burns in my lungs and might have to have a lung transplant; or, he said, my lungs could be mush. In other words dead, which would mean another transplant.
I’m so scared.
The withdrawals are so bad, I seriously feel like I’m going to die.
I’ve spent hours in the bathroom floor curled up in a ball puking, crying, shaking, sweating but freezing, being clammy – just complete misery.
Honestly, this is worse then heroin withdrawals.
I am very, very scared.
