I have started to write a diary whilst trying the "therapy". I am going to post the updated version of it once in a while. Here is the first instalment.

Saturday 9/22 (360mg verap)
9 pm took just over 2grms of "tea" on empty stomach used Pinsharks directions for making the tea ,10-15 minutes later feeling the affects, vey high, some naseau and puked, enjoyed the high.. ate a sandwich at 12.30am, at 1.45am started to come down. finally went to sleep at 3.30am No headaches that evening.

Sunday 9/23 360 mg verapamil
Felt tired all day but"happy" 7.30 pm got a ha used 02. Went to bed at 9.30 got ha used o2 and a zomig.

Monday 9/24 180mg verapamil
No headaches during the day ( noticed my brow was now dry) Took zomig in the evening so I could drink a glass of wine) no headaches

Tuesday 9/25
180mg of verap
No ha's all day. Took zomig in the evening for a drink with my house guests. No ha's

wednesday 9/26 180mg verapamil.

Thursday 9/27
same as yesterday I feel great. No twinges at all. 180mg verap

Friday. 9/28
180mg verap
Noticed beads of sweat on my head in the morning, none in the afternoon. very stressful day at work. Had my dinner very late. Got a shadow before bed, which I got rid of with ice and 1 minute of o2.

Saturday, 9/29
180mg Verapamil.
noticed light jabbing pains in my head during the middle of the day. Planned to take another dose of tea tonight but the connection to get them failed. Was very upset so I decided to have a few glasses of wine without the aid of a zomig (completeley expecting to get a ha). Did not get a headache tonight at all.

Sunday 9/30
180mg verapamil.
woke up with shadows (I know the difference between a hangover and cluster shadows) Very easy to get rid of with 5 mins of 02. Brow has been dry all day.
7pm took 1 Dramamine tab to get ready for treatment. Didn't want to puke this time.
8pm made 1.7 gramms of tea. Did not use Pinky's recepie as I was warned these were very potent. 8.15 pm started to feel the affects. Did not enjoy this tea as much as the last batch. (they came from a different source). I did however have a few bouts of major giggles. Things moving around, colours very bright. I did notice the top left side of my head felt "bruised".
Ate some food at 12.30am. Went to bed at 2am. No headaches.
