A bad experience with DXM freebase

After downing bottles of robo and taking countless numbers of drixoral pills, I decided enough was enough and extracted DXM from cough medicine. I bought a few bottles of robitussin and extracted them the next day. I wanted to do it in bulk, so that I could sell some to my freinds. I ended up with pure DXM HBr.

I didn't know exactly how much I had extracted, so I went to a head shop in my city and bought one of those cheap scales. That was my mistake. I weighed out the amount and it gave me 1000mg of DXM. That was about how much I wanted to take. I put the 1000mg of DXM inside capsules and swallowed them.

I don't remember much of the trip. I did have a cool OBE, but I think I might have been dead. Anyway, my girlfriend said that I was convulsing. We had robed before, so she knew (or thought) I would be alright. I was, but it scared me.

After that incident, I bought a good scale for about $20 bucks. I had done DXM countless times before, over 1000mg and had never had this kind of experience. It was really scary. With that cheap scale, the amount I took was probably near the 1500-2000mg mark. Now, when I extract, I weigh it out carefully with the $20 scale. It is accurate. My word to the wise is that when you're dealing with DXM in it's pure form, don't underestimate it. It's a totally different ballgame. Be careful with that stuff.
