I took a trip yesterday with 5g of Cyanescens - and was very surprised and a bit frightened to have some physiological effects hit me at what should have been the end of the trip - and they lasted for about six more hours. So the purpose of this post isn't to recap the trip but to see if anyone can help me understand why that happened. I'll share another trip report post.
I ate 5g of Cyanescens at 930am, started feeling the trip onset around 1015 and started to come down between 2 and 3pm. At 330pm I made a phone call and was very coherent and felt stable in mind and body. I thought I was just going to continue a slow return to normal state. But then I stepped outside of my van to go walk into the woods and pee and felt very uncoordinated, like my muscles were giving out. I don't recall cramps, just loss of muscle control. I also noticed that my vision was blurry. I returned to the van and called a trusted friend and experienced tripper and he asked me if I had been drinking water and eating. I realized, in great frustration, that I had failed to eat and drink since eating the mushrooms despite the fact that I had laid out food and water on a table. I didn't have much of a breakfast and I had a full dinner the night before. At this point I felt on the verge of passing out. I at an orange, dates, carrots, raisins and bread and drank water. And immediately felt like I wasn't going to pass out - but my vision was still blurry and I still had muscle control issues. I also felt like I was kinda of tripping in that I could calmly rest my attention on anything and feel at peace. My wife brought me hope and I laid in bed. My muscle control slowly came back around 9pm; the last hold out was the use of my fine motor skills. It was hard to turn key in knob or twist a lamp switch. I woke up this morning back at baseline.
I had eaten from this batch of mushrooms before and nothing like this happened. I want to attribute it to my lack of food and water - but does that explain the muscle issues? Is this a physiological reaction that is known to happen with psilocybin mushrooms? Any insight would be much appreciated - thanks!
