Update:
 
As some of you know, I've had a rather stressful 5 days. I did get hit once each on Friday and Saturday. Both hits were at a time when I was able to sit still after very stressful stimuli. Both hits were about k8s and both were effectively aborted within 10 minutes with SPUTS.  
I've had some shadows, some pretty heavy, but nothing to write home about. I've also had very clear PF periods. So, I'm waiting...
should activity return on a regular basis, I will dose. Otherwise, I'm still pretty good.  Smiley

Update:
 
I got hit twice more since Wed. One aborted quickly with a SPUT. One not aborted. For the last 3 days, I've had several "false starts". I feel a hit coming, very quickly, and very painfully, but it goes away in about 3 - 5 minutes. I've had no autonomic symptoms during the hits or false starts, except for a slightly droopy eye.  
I will probably dose again this weekend, since the activity is pretty regular.

Hi, Nani.
 
It's not surprising to me that you are getting hit after the last several days that you have had.  I hope things will settle down soon, and that your treatments kick back in and work for you.
 
Hold on!   hug hug

I'm glad this is working for you.

I should note that it's been 30 days since my last dose of 5 HBWR seeds. Not bad. Not bad at all.  Smiley

Well, it's been 35 days since my last HBWR dose. I've been getting hit some again and have been experiencing regular shadows. This morning I dosed with 1 gm psilocybin tea with lemon juice. I chose psilocybin because I wanted to "shake things up" a little. I used a small dose because I consider this more of a maintenance (and not a "busting" ) dose and I haven't been in the optimal emotional state for the past few weeks.
As usual I had a trip level of about zero. I had some painful twinges along the trigeminal nerve from my nose to my ear and teeth, but no hits yet.  
I'll keep you posted...
hugs, nani

Good to hear you're getting a break, rexie.  Smiley
 
I shadowed pretty heavily from Sunday through Thursday of last week. I started getting hit again on Friday. Today I dosed with 11 RC (rivea corymbosa) seeds soaked in water for 3 hours. Had my usual trip level of zero, LOL and have had no post dose hits or shadows.  
My eye twitch (which had pretty much disappeared since August) was back in full force yesterday and today, but it hasn't twitched at all since dosing.  
My head feels very clear tonight.  Smiley

Good luck to you Nani and Rex. I hope you stay PF.  
 
My weekend:
After the most painful (kip 8 ) headache of this cycle on Sunday, I made the decision to aquire some psilocybin. The Naturopath avenue didn't seem to be working, so I had nothing else.
 
After talking to a few friends I got some. I didn't have a scale so I went by what my friend said was about 1/4 of a dose. I made a tea out of them and drank it down. A headache was just starting when I dosed, but it kinda turned into a dull feeling after a while. I deffinately felt the effects of the stuff, so I have a feeling it was more than 1/4...but it wasn't unpleasant. After about 4 hours the effects wore off, and I didn't get a HA for the rest of the day, but I had that dull feeling in the spot where I get them.  
 
This morning I woke up and felt fine, but at about 11:00AM(my usual HA time) I had a kip 4 or so. It lasted for about 45 minutes and slowly went away. That is totally normal for me. I have no idea what next week or so will be like, but I'm praying for PFD.

Keep it up you guys, and keep telling us what you are doing, because next cycle, I'm gonna be asking questions about how much, how often, etc.  I'm not going to go through another 5 months of agony again if I can help it.  I'm reading, copy/pasting and saving every little tidbit I can find here.

This is great to see - Clusterheads fighting back and winning.
 
When I joined last year the support was fantastic - now the mood's much more upbeat about winning battles (you can guess I'm an Autumn episodic from that remark).  
 
It's been a good year topped by a great week - no headaches and not even that eye twitch.  Shrooms and O2 bless you both.

I didn't really notice too much of an improvement with my headaches over the last week after my first dose of mushrooms, so I took a bigger dose over the weekend. Is that a bad idea? Should I be sticking with small doses?
 
After the initial dose I did notice a few changes in my headaches. I always get them right sided...a few days after I took them I had a bit of stabbing pain in my left temple. Anyone else experience this?

The bigger the dose, the bigger the headaches will be the few following days. I used to have the same kind of logic, but it doesn't work that way. Stick to small doses, and increase by 0.5 g if unsuccessful.
I did 7g of dried once, thinking it would make a bigger impact.... I did get relief eventually, but the few following days were hellish, getting hit very hard and very often
 
They do switch every once a while for some of us. It's a sign that you've disturbed things up there.
 
Good luck to you and keep us posted.

In my personal experience, I found little releif with small doses.  I actually have to get to the "tripping" stage in order to find relief.  Many people are different and react differently to things. You might want to try upping the dose to see if you get more releif.  Try to take the smallest dose possible for the maximum releif though.  Try to find out how much it takes for you and stick with that.  Wish you the best.

the potency varies pretty wildly too.
.5g of one doesn't always equate to .5g of something else.... the age and how it was handled has a big effect too.  
 
It seems we each have to find our own right dosage.
The size of the person matters too.
LindaH would have a different dose than Big Dan...

Quick update:
About 12 days after my last RC dose, I started getting hit again. On day 14 (Saturday) I dosed on 23 RC seeds, soaked in water for 4 hours. I had one post dose hit later that night (about a 15 minute k6). The next 3 days were extremely stressful. I have only had pretty mild shadows. On Monday I shadowed for about an hour and a half, and used a SPUT. It kept me PF for the rest of the day. I'm still shadowing a bit. Very easy, very short shadows. I consider this last dose a success so far.  Smiley
PF wishes to all! nani
