Well, OK...
if yer gonna twist my arm...LOL
 
Well, yesterday was not as good as the 4 previous days. I actually got a k-5 hit around noon, but it only lasted 8 minutes. I chose not to try and abort it, because I wanted to see how long it would last. I shadowed a little more, too and noticed that my head wasn't feeling as clear as before. I will see how it goes today, and will dose tonight if needed. I will use a slightly larger dose of the same treatment.  
I will say that 4 virtually PF days from one dose of "medicine" is a huge improvement for me. I am very optimistic that the doses will get further apart, and that at some point, I'll just be maintenance dosing.  
hugs and pf wishes to all, nani

Not really. Many decades ago a guy named Bob Hope (you might remember him as Leslie) moved here from England and brought it with him. Caught on pretty good too. bag

Well, I dosed again tonight. I used a slightly larger dose and still didn't really feel different. I had mild shadows throughout (switching sides now and then) No real hits (yet) but had occasional "stabbing" pains in my skull and eyes (also switched sides now and then). I did notice that the stereo TV sounded like I was in the audience of The Daily Show.  
I'll keep ya posted.  Smiley

Nani,
 
Good luck!!    The shrooms will be my next choice, if the Kudzu quits working.
 
I did wake this a.m. with a K-6.    First hit I've had in many weeks.   Lasted about 30 minutes....hoping it was because I didn't take the zu at the right times yesterday...and am a bit deprived of sleep.
 
Keep us posted.

Thanks all!! Well, I didn't have ANY shadows today, but did get hit twice. Both were about a k4. The first one lasted all of about one minute, the second about 3 minutes.  Smiley  Both happened out in public, so I was grateful for their very short duration. My head has been rather "empty" otherwise.  Wink  
I'll keep you all posted. hugs, nani

Thanks Sandy. I definitely recommend this treatment  
(although I still can't say I'm in remission - yet)
I'm still experiencing some shadows and had a k7 hit yesterday that lasted about 30 minutes. It may have lasted less time had I not "wimped out" LOL and tried Red Bull. What I found was that since Red Bull tastes nasty to me I can only handle a few swigs at a time. So, I'd take a few sips, the pain would subside...only to come back in about 5 minutes. I repeated that pattern until the Red Bull and the CH were gone. In total...about 30 mins. So really, for all I know I just made a 10 minute hit last 30 mins.  Undecided
During the PF times, my head still feels remarkably clear. At one point last night I told my husband that my head felt like it had never had a HA. Or at least what I imagine that feels like.  
I'm keeping track of the activity, and it should continue to get better. Should my normal activity return I will dose with HBWR seeds. Some have experienced some relief with psilocybin, but had to dose fairly often to maintain it. Once they tried HBWR seeds, it finally provided complete remission. That, of course, is what I'm aiming for.
 
Many thanks to all of you who have provided kind and encouraging words. They mean a lot to me.  Smiley
 
hugs and PF to all, nani

Red Bull?  As in the beer Red Bull?  Or is this something entirely different?  Please splain, Lucy.

Red Bull is actually one of those "designer" energy drinks, Sandy. (you aren't the only one who thought it was beer, LOL) It contains caffeine and taurine (which Flo says can/may be useful in aborting). It's carbonated (which makes it impossible for me to slam it down) and to me, at least, tastes like artifically citrus flavored vitamins. Yuck. Quite a few people have reported that slamming one down at the first sign of a hit can be effective. So far, I haven't sprouted any wings.  Wink

Hey Nani,
 
So happy for you you're getting relief and especially about your one comment to your husband "my head felt like it had never had a HA."
 
May Peace and Pain Free Time Be With You,

Nani, just a thought but if the carbonation is the reason you can't drink it fast would opening it and leaving it in the fridge help? It would go flat and you might be able to chug it faster. Although it might make it taste even worse!!

I felt a 10 second "twinge" earlier... I've decided it was a death throe from the beast. I should be fine this evening and tonight... I am usually completely "clear" by 6 PM.
