I know I'm supposed to avoid triggers for now. Sensory overload can trigger me. Too much noise, activity, light, etc. Today I had 12- 12 year old boys over for my grandsons birthday party. Yes...12 of them.  Undecided  I thought for sure I was screwed. I did have a couple of 10 minute shadows, but...that's all!!!  Cheesy
Otherwise...empty-headed and PF!!

Wednesday was a rough day. I got hit twice and shadowed some. So I got proactive and dosed with 3 HBWR seeds last night. Again, no noticeable "effect". I shadowed some during the treatment and some pretty easy shadows on and off today. My head is clear again tonight.  Smiley
I tried the seeds this time, because a few people have found that dosing with them after a few psilocybin treatments stopped their cycle.  
We'll see how it goes.  Smiley  
hugs and love, nani
 
edited to add: all in all, with this treatment, I'm getting really good results with only having to take any "medicine" every 6 - 8 days.

 
 
FANTASTIC, Nani!!!! That's WONDERFUL news!

Not a great day today (yesterday was!). Had to take the kids shopping. I HATE SHOPPING. In and out of several crowded stores, in the heat and bright sunlight. I had a 5 minute k6 hit at Target. I've had a k2 shadow for about an hour. Off to lie under the AC vent with a flat Red Bull...

Sorry to hear you're getting these hits again.  Was hoping maybe you'd be catching a better break than that.

Wow...my last post sounded pretty whiney...sorry, that's not really my style. Now that my head is "empty" again and my body temperature and sensory input processors are back to normal... let me say all in all, it could have been a whole lot worse. Since my head is so clear, and I've only got one more store to go to...I think tomorrow will be fine.  Smiley I'm going at daybreak.  Wink

Doesn't Victoria's Secret have an online store? Its probably open 24 hours a day!!  Grin
If you go shopping there in the middle of the night, you'll most likely meet a few ch.com men there, shopping for their wives.

LMAO! Uh, Bob, I don't think my 12 year old grandson wants any school clothes from Victoria's Secret. Well, at least I hope he doesn't.  Grin  Online shopping is how I do Christmas, I can never seem to get it together enough to do it for Back-To-School, though.  Undecided
My head really is very clear tonight. Which makes me very happy  Smiley

OK...I was a little worried for a while yesterday. I shadowed for a total of about 3 hours. But they were easy shadows and didn't last very long individually. And I spent Monday brazenly exposing myself to triggers. Today I've been about 98% PF and clear-headed. And no hits at all since Monday.  Smiley  Today is 7 days since my HBWR dose, and I really can't say I feel I need to dose again (hopefully not anytime soon, at least). Going very well, I think...
thanks again, everyone, for your support and encouragement.  
love, nani  Kiss

Nani,
 
I get what I call Twinges even after I've knocked out the beast. They are short twinges in the temple that last maybe a minute or so.  
 
I usually have them a couple times a day but sometimes I'll go a few days without them. They go on usually for a couple months after the treatment has stopped me from getting hits.  
 
They are not painful and really just a reminder of what I would normally be going through.  
 
Just thought I'd share that.

I'm pretty darned good, Rexie...thanks for asking. Thank you all for asking. I have a moment or two of shadows today. Literally a moment or two. They are more like the twinges that Mitch described, but a little painful. I get the painless ones, too. My head is clear and empty 99% of the time. Just an occasional presence popping in to remind me I'm still fighting something. I have no immediate plans on dosing again.
 
Which brings me to yet another question for my learned friends...
if this keeps up, when should I consider a maintenance dose?  
 
hugs and love, nani

A few thoughts...
One, it sounds like things are continuing to improve a little each day which is very good and as you can tell, we're all very happy for you Nani.  Grin
I think you're time on the kudzu may have helped this treatment in that it gave you an extended time away from the normal prescription meds prior to trying this.
 
I would be ready to dose fairly quickly if you begin to get some shadows or tweaks that leave you thinking, hmmm, that didn;t feel right.
The longer you can go getting a feel for these little hits you'll become more confident that it's just little reminders as they fade away. If you get one thats more than a reminder, and more of a warning....you'll know its time to dose. Each of us becomes our own best radar.
 
If they fade away completely, I would probably wait until the first sign of something brewing but not wait more than 60 days from the last dose.  
If they aren't gone COMPLETELY by the 30 day mark, I'd probably dose then.  
I'd also stay at the same dose, or just a little less. Same dose if you're dosing because things are escalating....slightly less if you're dosing to stay pain free.
 
JMHO,
Bobw

After some concerning developments, I dosed again tonight. I used 3 HBWR seeds, as I did last time.  
 
Friday was a stormy day here. Lots of storm systems moving in and out. As the day went on, my shadows became more intense ( hovering around k 3) and I actually had 2 "mini" hits (less than 10 minutes at about k6). I was out all afternoon and evening and didn't need to abort, but considered dosing Saturday. Saturday was OK in the morning, I felt "clear" and PF. By late Saturday afternoon I started getting shadows that lasted longer than my recent ones. Probably 30 - 40 minutes at a time. By last night, I was "ping pong" shadowing. I'd shadow for about 20 minutes on the left, felt it go and less than 5 minutes later, would be shadowing on the right. This went on most of the evening. During the night, I probably woke up 6 times with hard shadows. They also "ping-ponged".  
 
I feel like it's trying to morph and breakthrough, so I thought another dose might help put it back to sleep. I dosed 3 hours ago and have had "no effect" again. I've not had any hits and only a couple of ping pong shadows.  
 
I'll keep you posted.  Smiley
 
edit to add: This is 11 days since my last dose.  Smiley
