I started using spice close to the end of Jr. High. I became depressed and was engaging in self- destructive behavior. So I wanted to try drugs. Because I didn’t care enough about my well being and was looking for an escape emotionally. I wish, I would have known of the consequences of what these legal drugs would do to your body.
When I took my first hit I was around 12-13 years old. I still remember the immediate effects seconds after, I turned around to catch myself on the playground. While I was turning right my perception changed drastically, it seemed as though it took a few minutes to turn around and at the same. It happened quickly. I had this reaction multiple times after each hit and it would give me an intense euphoria like I was in the clouds.
It caused me to feel extremely angry and I would have panic attacks of thinking that was going to die. I remember losing control of myself and rolling on my back snapping back into the present in short reoccurring patterns. It may have been a seizure but I had nobody watching me. I was with a friend at the time and I remember seeing him momentarily laying on his back just blankly starring through the play set drooling.
I shook him and said his name a few times trying to stay present. We eventually came back and after getting high there was always an irritable come down period, where everything felt melted down. I began to smoke k2 every week with my friend at the park. I eventually started smoking it as much as I could.
Every night I tried to stay under the radar from my parents. There was a point where I realized that I was not performing as well at the video games I was playing. I was really good at them and always wanted to be a top of the leader board player. However, now lost that ability completely.
I had a very like able and loved to make jokes and making anyone laugh. There were few characteristics of mine which were very popular among my near and dear ones like cleverness, artistic.However, after smoking K2 everything got changed. it changed my attitude towards life.Everyday I still struggle with it, along with emotional issues and personality/ sense of self issues but I do my best to take care of myself when I can.
If anyone can get anything from this, it’s that spice, k2, ‘legal weed’ is extremely toxic to the body. It will change the wiring in your brain and it can make you slow and unable to form relationships. It is not something I would ever recommend anyone to try once, be around anyone smoking it, or selling it to your customers, it is debilitating to people and I know I’m not the only one out there.
I have recently had an MRI and the results showed nothing abnormal. However, as for a PET scan. I can guarantee that something would show up abnormal.
Stay away from spice and spread the word It is as worse as methamphetamine. If not worse in some aspects. They effect different parts of the brain but spice creates more long term damage in my opinion.
