And also very silly.

Last night. Inhalants were proffered, inhalants were duly inhaled. Don't know what it was, didn't ask, but it made dancing a lot cooler, so nice one mysterious lady.

But yes, very dangerous, very silly. I agree entirely. Lord, make me sober, but not yet!

You should never do any drugs you don't know what it is. Don't want to sound all preachy. I've just seen to many f'ed up avoidable situations in the past.

Today I just had my normal some cannabis flower and lots of coffee.

Welp while doing some illegal activities (weed) I thought I saw some dude point a gun to someone because they gave my bff brother less weed then he asked. I was scared shitless and well I texted my bff brother wtf why did some KID have a gun pointed to the sellers head. Only to find out it was a BB gun. XD

Welp after that excitement I ended up smoking some lemony weed. Taste good but smell bad.

A bb gun can cause just as much fear in a person as a real gun. They have no idea if it's bb gun or a magnum pointed at them. The fear will be the same. If someone in the other group had a real gun this could've ended very badly. And not just for him

I don't think these are the type of people you need to be around. But that's up to you.
Just try and stay safe and be wise on who you hang out with.

The only reason I went with my bff's brother and his wife is because I was pretty sure it was safe. These kids were my BFF"s brothers cousins kids. I'm talking about 13-15 years old. Crazy thing is... We drove off with my BFF's brothers cousin. He was 15 and was selling shit and not just weed. Funny thing is... after we left we had a van follow us.... The fucking 13 year old was driving the van with his other friend and was like "Dude buy from us... our weed is much better"... my bff's brother was like "alright man"... and exchanged numbers and went on our marry way. so that was my day.

I've stopped taking fluoxitine (Prozac). Haven't taken any for the last few weeks. I read up a little, and apparently it takes a while for levels in your system to lower, so effects of immediate cessation are usually quite minimal. Feel fine, mood-wise. The only thing I've noticed is the "brain zaps" that everybody mentions. It's like a little jolt shooting from my eyes to the back of my head. It's a bit weird, but other than that, not too unpleasant.

I'm pleased that, having taken in for around three months, I felt remarkably better within a few weeks. It's good to know that I can potentially resort to it or something like it if I get into a spiral beyond my ability to stop again. It happens occasionally. :P I'll just need to see if I hold up. I think I will!

Anyone else have experience with the zappy effect? I wonder why it happens?

I’ve heard of brain zaps also from people taking MAOIs, but haven’t experienced anything like it so far.

Yeah, some people describe quite terrible effects from withdrawing from fluoxitine, to the extent that they've had to start taking it again and tapering very slowly indeed. Others say they've had no negative effects at all. I imagine it might at least partially have something to do with the duration one took the drug for, but I have no idea, to be honest. :shrug:

It seems like the best thing to do is always taper all such medications when stopping them, no matter what. The withdrawal symptoms can not only be unpleasant but also quite dangerous.

Probably true, yeah. I assumed that there was no real need to taper due to the long half-life and since I hadn't been taking it for a long time. I'll keep an eye on it.

I’m on 300mg of clozapine and 4mg on Rexulti. Also 100 twice a day of lamictal. Those are the psych drugs. Other ones are manly drugs to help my heart rate, help poop, and metformin to help with hunger in the meds.

And to prevent them from giving you diabetes! We take metformin too, mainly for life-extension, diabetes-prevention and anti-cancer purposes.

Maybe I'll post Brenden's and my lists sometime :P

Lol sure why not. I’ve been on a few antidepressants but I‘be mainly been on antipsychotics. Antidepressants like paxil, Prozac, celexa, Zoloft. And Wellbutrin and trazadone which that was mainly for sleep. Antipsychotics are too many to list. Metformin is what help me get out the prediabetes range when I was 240. Now I’m 180.

If you live i the us there’s places where they have sliding scales for those in need of psychiatric care without needing insurance. That’s what I did about 11 years ago when I’ve became symptomatic and my insurance cut me off after I had turned 18. I live in a big city so idk what options you have.
