My husband and I decided to try spice.
We were at a time in our lives where we couldn’t smoke marijuana and we thought the synthetic marijuana couldn’t be much different.
If that wasn’t the furthest thing from the truth.
We used frequently for about a year. I can remember smoking, and instantly afterwards everything around me always looked different. I can remember looking at the TV thinking everything was so “cartoonish.”
When my husband would look at me and talk to me, I would think to myself, “is this who I am married too?” He looked weird to me. Like I have never seen him before, and we were just two people in the world that ended up in the same living room, on opposite ends of couch. I recall wondering if he ever felt the same way I did.
My heart would race like a horse in second place about to take first. My hands and feet would almost instantly turn cold, with the sweats. As we continued to smoke, I noticed my symptoms became worse. I recall sitting on my couch; I just smoked with my husband. I was screaming on the inside wanting to tell him how bad I was feeling but no matter what I couldn’t get myself to speak!!! My mouth was unable to move.
I burst into tears, and he had no idea what was happening to me. After a moment I was able to finally say, “I have to quit smoking spice right now!!!” Nothing else came out of my mouth for about an hour.
I was completely overwhelmed by this feeling of ‘drifting away’.
I quit smoking for a few weeks after this moment happened to me. My husband and I would argue because I didn’t want to be around it anymore, and he still wanted to smoke because he didn’t experience what I had.
As time went, I ended up smoking with him again. I always had the same rapid heart beat and the weird abnormal thoughts I’ve never experienced before.
The end of spice for me was a super scary experience. Our neighbor came over and wanted to smoke with us. The ONE hit came around to me and after I took it, instantly I was knocked back in the chair knowing something bad was about to happen! My heart was beating so fast, my feet instantly so sweaty but so cold. Everything was looking weird, and I was having abnormal thoughts.
Usually I could shake it, but not this time.
I stumbled into the back room and called my husband back, so embarrassed in front of my neighbor, and inside scared. I remember him looking at me telling me to calm down, everything was going to be okay. At this time I was studdering, dizzy. After he thought I was going to be okay, he needed to go smoke a CIG. He kept telling me that if I needed him, he’d be on the porch, to send him a text or call.
He wasn’t even out of the room 3-5 mins, and I was on my phone to contact him. When I was trying to put my lock code in my phone to reach him I couldn’t type it!!! I was like frozen and so dizzy. I knew subconsciously something serious was happening. I made myself get up, and stumbled to the porch.
All I could say was “I need you, I need you”. He grabbed me up and walked me to our couch. As I was sitting on the couch, I kept grabbing my calves and saying there were cramping so bad, and they were swollen. I was zoning, but fighting to stay in the zone because I knew something wasn’t right.
As he noticed I wasn’t taking involuntary breaths, he got scared. He was counting with me to breathe. He stood me up and had his hand on my shoulders reminding me to breathe. I wasn’t speaking to him; nor could I say a word.
At this point, my legs start to collapse and he’s holding me up; screaming at me to come to. My eyes kept closing, and I started crying! That’s all I could do. I couldn’t talk, walk, hold my eyes open. I remember him talking to me, telling me to breathe and he was going to get me help.
Something clicked inside of him to get my body stimulated.
He walked me into our bathroom and stripped me of my clothes and put me in a freezing cold shower. At first the shower was doing nothing for me. He was aggressively telling me I needed to be in control.
After about 5-10 mins later, whatever he said I responded in complete attitude. Never would I think a smile would appear as he is telling me I was fine just needed to stay in the shower for a moment.
While this was happening, my neighbor hit the spice again. I was shortly climbing out of shower and I heard my husband say my name calling for my help! I instantly snapped to, got dressed and realized wtf just had happened to me. The same thing that happened to me was happening to my neighbor but worse.
He was seizing on my floor, and we were so scared. He kept talking about these atoms he was seeing. He was grabbing at his legs awwing in pain….. Like the same thing that happened to me. I also noticed he wasn’t breathing.
I now was at a loud tone, reminding him how and when to breathe. Reminding him of his family, and what all was at stake. At some point he was doing something for me to know it was time to roll him on his right side. With my medical experience, I knew I needed to do this or I felt like we were going to lose him.
Everything was blurry but so real. I wasn’t just 10 mins ago experiencing the same thing as he was. I feel like if I didn’t fight it internally, I would have been him. The difference between he and I was I knew something bad was coming on before it did.
During my horrible trip, the thought that I was dying had crossed my mind a few times. I can’t even explain what it was inside me that knew. I feel like being that little bit of aware I was saved me.
Eventually I made my neighbor stand up and walk in circles with my husband to stimulate him also.
We were in tears at this point and all I could say was, “this was meant to happen!!” “We needed this to happen!!” I kept thinking if this didn’t happen we would be smoking tomorrow!!
After that night, we never ever touched it again, nor did we have withdrawals. We were in a state of shock for 2 days. Crying, long moments of silence.
We advise anyone who thinks this may be fun; you are messing the the devil.
DO NOT EVEN PUT YOURSELF AT RISK WITH ONE TRY!!
If I ever catch my friends/family doing this, I am coming with violence and a huge story. I cannot believe this made it to the shelves legal to sell advertised as same effects of marijuana. LMFAO WHAT A JOKE. Spice is nothing like the non-man-made plant.
MARIUJANA KILLS CANCER!!! LEGALIZE !!!
