A Massive Blob

First a little about myself. I weigh about 170 pounds and have dropped moderate amounts of acid (2-3 hits) about once a month for the past year or so. It had been about 2 weeks since I dropped when I decided to dose, so I still had a tiny bit of afterglow from my last trip (not to noticeable until I toke up usually). Anyway, I decided to go for a second plateau experience, so I took about 300mg worth of DXM via some generic cough syrup; yummy =P About an hour after I dosed I started to feel a bit high and a bit "drippy". Kind of like I was melting, but it's one of those things that's just to hard to describe. Soon after I went up into my room and put on a tape of some cartoons (Animaniacs and The Simpsons). I put the TV on mute and put Orbital 2 (by Orbital) in my CD player. At this point I was feeling a bit sick, so I decided to smoke a bowl. The second I toked up the trip hit me HARD. The music began to sound very tinny but at the same time it was simply amazing. The cartoons I was watching began to look very odd also. I got up from my chair to go lay down in bed and I noticed that I had almost no sensation in my legs, or the rest of my body for that matter. When I walked it felt kind of like being drunk, but at the same time very different. When I got over to my bed I immiedately layed down and closed my eyes. I hadn't been getting very many open eye visuals, but the closed eye visuals were amazing. First I was flying around these strange worlds. I would visualize one and it would appear before me. Next a series of odd shapes morphed together to form a massive "blob". The blob then proceeded to crush me. This was when things started to get VERY wierd. My closed eye visuals took on dimension, texture and I could feel them. I've seen and felt a *lot* of weird things on mushrooms and acid, but this was unreal. I saw a tornado coming twords me, but it wasn't exactly a tornado. More like a galaxy, but it was spinning very fast. I got sucked into it and was flung off into space. I could see the stars going by me at warp speed. Things were getting pretty out of hand, so I opened my eyes (the fact that I could open my eyes hadn't really occured to me for a while I guess) and everything looked about normal except I had double vision. Everything becomes a blur after this point. I remember watching cartoons for a while and then having lots of cartoon themed closed eye visuals but that's about it. I also remember feeling really out of my head and body throughout the whole expeience. I think I drifted off to sleep at about midnight (I dosed at 7:30PM). I woke the next morning with a big hangover (kind of scary) and had lots of trouble talking and putting sentances together, but it seemed to wear off by that evening and the next day I felt pretty much normal. Overall, a MUCH more intense expeience than I imagined. I'm sure smoking a bowl had a lot to do with that though. It wasn't a bad experience, but it wasn't an especially enjoyable one either. The word here is INTENSE. I'm glad I gave it a try though. Next time I decide to dose (that's an if actually) I'll aim for a first plateau experience.
