Day Five

Today is day five post Psilocybin treatment and I’m still feeling an overwhelming tingling sensation, shakiness and numbness throughout my entire body. 

Earlier in the week I mentioned that I was having an exceptionally hard day and finding it really difficult to shake off my anxiety and panic that felt constant as I began to recall more and more abstract images from my “trip”. I was hopeful though that it was just my body and mind pushing the reset button and making way for that shift toward healing to take place. I also believed at the time that due to the ruthlessness of my experience just a few days earlier which caused me to have unrelenting convulsions for over 5 hours and had probably brought about the tingling, numbess and shakiness I’d been feeling but as my week progresses so too has the intensity of these sensations and I’ve now begun a downward spiral into the deep, dark abyss of rumination; but not to worry, I’ve also been talking up a storm with Dr. GOOGLE since very early this morning in order to hold me over until I can chat with my other doctors on Saturday.
