But i dnt know if i can cope until then. Im generally ok in the mornings, but things trigger me as the day goes on and by the end up just a shaking wreck.
I went hospital last night, waited 4 hours just to get handed a promethazane to help me sleep as i generally cannot sleep.
I keep having flashbacks to the trip and think im having PTSD from it. Once the psychotic thoughts get a grip of me its hard to shake them. Do u think this might get better without anti psychotics? This was 100% drug induced, mxe it is similar to pcp, never had any mental issues until this. Im scared its gonna effect me forever, and im worried how im going to cope today and tonight.
