I was part of a group of kids in high school that could be labeled as “druggies”. I never tried anything too dangerous, only ever regular marijuana.
Normal weed never had much of an effect on me.
One day in the summer, one of my friends brought spice over to the alleyway where we would go after school. Me and my best friend tried it and immediately my body started vibrating and the world tilted on its axis.
I remember walking normally, but after about 5 minutes the hallucinations began. It was like my brain was flipping in my skull, and I could see what was real but yet it didn’t seem real.
The intense fear and paranoia kicked in right after that. I began telling myself I was going to die, I was so scared.
It came in waves. One minute I’d think I was fine and back to normal and then it would hit again.
As soon as I got home, I was scared to sleep because I thought I might go into a coma. Sleeping actually made it stop.
But that was 2 years ago.
TO THIS DAY I still have occasional hallucinations exactly like that because of the spice. I will never touch drugs again and I can’t even be around people doing them. I live in constant fear of the hallucinations sparking back up.
