  1. Thanks.  Actually, I am in the US.

    Awesome! finding these shouldn't be too much of a hassle.

    Head down to your local gas station, or corner store. They will have Rockstars, Monsters, and Redbulls almost guaranteed.

    After that its just a preference of flavor

    Good luck buddy, let us know how you make out with it.

    Also from experience, these caffeinated beverages will make the O2 therapy more effective when combined. Theres been times for me when an energy drink doesn't cut it, and the o2 doesnt cut it by itself, but combined is a beast (CH) slaying combo   8-)

    If highly sugared drinks isn't your thing, a good strong cup of coffee, or a tea called "mate" will provide benefits as well


  2. Monster energy drinks, Redbull, Rockstar.

    Not really sure what you have in your country, by your user name I assume that you are not in the US.

    A drink with a lot of caffeine & taurine in it.

    This is the label from monster energy "khaos"

    Anything similar is likely to help you

    Use sparingly as the more you consume, the less effective they are

    And as far as oxygen, YES!!!!!! check out the menu tab on the left of your screen,click on the "o2 page" print it out, and take it with you when you see your doctor.

    You need to have pure O2, at 12LPM or better and a non rebreather mask like the optimask.

    LPM varies, if the bag stays full and you can achieve a full breath than your LPM is high enough, If not then you need more LPM


  3. This is sad because most cant make it to Florida. I see no reason why the tests cant be done in the state you dwell in and have results sent to this guy in Florida.

    It's a shame because his test is only localized, having less patients and less data making his study, basically a wash.

    So my next question may be... How does psilo, lsd and lsa some how regulate hormones long enough after the substances are completely rid from the patients body for weeks,or months at a time?

    Personally steroids were the only thing that has ever really worked for me, and this might be of benefit for someone like me. But if its just hormone testing and therapies, this can be done anywhere, even with your GP


  4. Yes, people report having the symptoms without the pain, such as drooping/teary eye and runny nose. Irritability, strange dreams, poor sleep and so on.

    Good choice on taking a dose at the firsts signs of chaos.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes  ;)


  5. Steroids work great for NOW, but in the long run they just make matters much much WORSE.

    As time goes on, you'll need a higher dose to achieve the same results.

    Stay away from them, there are better options.


  6. I recently cancelled my health insurance, and I still get H tanks for $30 bucks, delivered. These are the huge ones, they are like 5 ft tall and weigh like 100+ lbs. Liquid medical grade O2.

    You may want to find a medical supply company that has a contract with Apria or another specialty gases company and go through the medial supply center instead of the  specialty gas company.

    On top of that i get an E tank, probably once a month, at no cost, just to keep in my car.

    The H tank lasts me about 7-9 days, I'm chronic... 3-5 attacks a day...

    There has to be someone out there that wants your business, at a reasonable cost of course.


  7. At this stage in the process, is sunlight good, or sunlight bad?

    light/sunlight induces pinning, keep them in the dark until fully colonized

    Also, cannabis has about 10% LSA in it, and the latest thing on the street are people extracting the LSA, and selling cannabis that is 100% LSA!

    No


  8. About a week after a concussion playing highschool lacrosse. I was 14, I was knocked unconscious, and came to when my head bounced off the ground. Poor fitting, old helmet. Coach said I just got hit real good, although it was during a practice, and I was picking up the ball after it went out of bounds, my head was down and I was at a stand still, the kid that hit/checked me was a few years older than me, came at me full speed. When I woke up I had no idea where I was. Went into shock, shivering and shaking, extremely cold. Headaches started about a week later in class. Eventually had to drop out cuz I'd get hit the same time every day in the same class. I dealt with it for about two years, but I eventually was taking 9nth and 10th grade  classes in my 11th grade year  :o


  9. Another thing mentioned in the video, is the fact that when serotonin levels go up, dopamine goes down. When dopamine goes up serotonin levels go down.

    I think the controversy with what class LSD should be in, is caused by the different brain chemistry people have. Different people experience different things.

    In the video Nichols asks the audience of you will, how many have takin LSD. Most everyone raises their hands lol. Then he asks if they enjoyed the entire trip OR after about 4-6 hours you got sick of it or annoyed and wanted it to stop. It seemed to be about 50/50, similar to the poll in the link you posted.


  10. Coffee: I drink as much as my stomach can stand. It helps that much. Never had a problem with too much coffee causing more CH. CH is going to do its' own thing.

    Not if too much caffiene keeps you up at night, thus interfering with your sleep schedule.  ;)


  11. I see a few people just discovering MAPS. Here is a video from one of the researchers associated with MAPS.

    This video with David Nichols explains how LSD works in the brain, and touches on the idea of why people get annoyed by the trip after six hours or so.

    When you take LSD, it first targets your serotonin receptors, after about 4-6 hours, the compound is broken down by the liver, and then re-enters the blood stream as a modified compound which targets dopamine receptors. Most users get annoyed and want the experience to end around the 4-6 hour mark. But of course everyone's brain chemistry is different and different people experience different things

    This is just a snippet, of what the video contains. It is very "sciency" and difficult to follow at times

    But I am sure those who watch will at least have a laugh, and take something from it, and hold a slightly better understanding of what LSD does in the brain.

    It also touches on psilocybin, and what receptors are targeted, the difference in LSD and psilocybin is remarkable.

  12. Entry into REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep is a known trigger for many clusterheads. This usually occurs anywhere from 60-120 minutes after falling asleep, and is the beginning of the dreaming phase of sleep

    Probably because the histaminergic cells are still firing when they are supposed to stop....


  13. I dont think sleep triggers CH, I think CH causes the sleep issues. After all CH is known as histamine headache, histamines are responsible for wake cycles and the hypothalamus releases the histamines/nuero transmitters.

    "Sleep regulation

    Histamine is released as a neurotransmitter. The cell bodies of histaminergics, the neurons which release histamine, are found in the posterior hypothalamus, in various tuberomammillary nuclei. From here, these neurons project throughout the brain, to the cortex through the medial forebrain bundle. Histaminergic action is known to modulate sleep. Classically, antihistamines (H1 histamine receptor antagonists) produce sleep. Likewise, destruction of histamine releasing neurons, or inhibition of histamine synthesis leads to an inability to maintain vigilance. Finally, H3 receptor antagonists increase wakefulness.

    It has been shown that histaminergic cells have the most wakefulness-related firing pattern of any neuronal type thus far recorded. They fire rapidly during waking, fire more slowly during periods of relaxation/tiredness and completely stop firing during REM and NREM (non-REM) sleep. Histaminergic cells can be recorded firing just before an animal shows signs of waking."

    So your retarded hypothalmus releases histamines which wake you up, histamines cause allergic reaction symptoms and inflamation... stuffed/runny nose, puffy eye, red eye. Except with CH the reaction is of a biblical scale. To me it seems as if its a false allergic/ inflammatory reaction


  14. Don't change up too much, cuz if somethin works, you may not be able to pinpoint it.

    Stick with what works, or benefit from until it doesn't. Then start looking for other strategies.

    You got 13 days pf since last dose, maybe the next dose will give you 20 days.

    In alot of cases, its seems as if with each dose the PF time gets a little longer than before. I would keep on the road you are on.

    Caffiene is very very beneficial to us, but can also be bad. You say you used lots and lots.... I fear 4-6 hours your shadows may return. Happens to me alot, I'll wake up shadowing, knock it down with some coffee and a round on the o2, and almost guaranteed I will get activity a few hours later, and if I go for the coffee again, it doesnt work as well.

    I would see how the day goes, you will know if they are progressively getting worse, if you have doubts, I would suggest dosing ASAP


  15. Good news is I have been 13 days PF,since my last bust! Which was 13 days ago! So excited!

    Sounds like an early Birthday present! Congrats!

    So now my ? To y'all is how to maintain it!

    If your cycles are predictable, you can dose before they are expected to return.

    If they are not predictable, dose at the first sign of shadows/attacks.

    Don't wait. If the beast knocks on the door, don't let him in. Dose as soon as possible. If he gets a foot in the door, it will be more difficult to stop.
