Been struggling with depression for years. Been diagnosed with bi-polar type 2 a couple years ago. For the past year I have been working on myself a lot, mostly my spirituality. Not only did psilocybin fix my depression, it took my spirituality to the next level.
In fact it completely changed the way I see the world now. Some call it becoming enlightened. I don’t like titles but yeah, that’s what happened to me.
Today was my first day of 0.1g mushrooms and I have to say, it was incredibly progressive in terms of my mental well-being. I suffer from anxiety/depression and have recently been extremely stressed out about my current relationship with my roommates/living situation. It was something that was just eating me up inside every single day. I’ve had a hard time getting past it.
But today, hours after my dose, I had a good, long cry about it and I genuinely feel like I pushed past a mental barrier. I’m at peace with my situation and realized my self-worth. And for the first time, I’m looking forward to the future, instead of being hopeless about it.
I have had tinnitus from early childhood, worsened by gunfire and machinery, motors, working in the shop and lots of metal grinding with my job. My hearing was terrible.
This is just insane to me, after only TWO doses of 0.2g and I can barely even focus hard enough to hear the ringing, even in complete silence it’s hardly there. It’s burdened me for years and interrupted my sleep, and also can’t hear well in crowded areas with background noise, and I don’t think my hearing got any better but just the constant monotone ringing is damn near gone. This isn’t even why I decided to try micro dosing but just a noticed effect from the last 2 days. I’m blown away!
Microdosing mushrooms did wonders for my depression and anxiety! This isn’t just hippy dippy nonsense. This is real medicine.
Microdosing has helped me tremendously. From being unable to leave the house and being in bed 20 hours a day, I am now doing 150% workload of courses at university while getting a degree in Computer Science.
I tried a three months microdosing schedule for my wife who had crippling ADHD. She was a barely functioning adult. After that she was able to get to school, got her degree in electromechanics and is a highly functional adult. ADHD seems to be gone.
Micro dosed twice and feel so much better already!!
I just started microdosing last week and have done it twice so far. I have Major Depressive Disorder which I’ve painfully struggled with all my life. I’m also in recovery.
I spent most of the past year in bed and wouldn’t shower for weeks on end. I wanted to die. I was hospitalized in Feb/Mar for 5 weeks. I’ve also been on every medication there is, had ECT, TMS and Ketamine infusions and nothing has worked. I can’t work, lost my home and gave my kids to my ex husband while I tried to recover. I’ve been so worried I’d be that way forever.
I’ve been researching microdosing for some time now and decided to give it a go. I found a great therapist, meditate daily and go to online AA meetings.
I have so much more energy and clarity and can actually hold a conversation with people and look them in the eye without feeling like a piece of shit or analyzing every word they said. I even danced today!
I’m so grateful to feel somewhat normal again and for all the tips and advice I’ve gotten from you guys. Thank you!!
So context here is I am a “high functioning” ADHD with a very successful career but it requires a ton of stimulant meds that create severe and persistent crushing anxiety, and it leaves no energy for my family and personal relationships. I also have a ton of experience with hallucinogens but not as medication, and only in higher quantities.
Took my first microdose today and it was, by far, the most effective medication I’ve ever experienced. It was like all the areas of my brain that are usually so hard to work with just became softer. The anxiety became easily manageable, but it has also increased my ability to focus and process information…. kind of everything. I don’t know if this is sustainable, but I have hope!!
After 35 years on/off depression since the age of 11/12 years old, some of it so severe that it has taken me to my bed for months on multiple points through my life. After 2 weeks of micro dosing I see and more importantly feel a big difference.
Anxiety/depression has largely gone (replaced with another type of anxiety of why am I not feeling anxious or depressed – it feels unusual both physically, emotionally and psychologically).
Mind is still like water – perhaps like the benefits of being a long term meditator (I’ve been unable to meditate successfully before for any length of time). Vocabulary smoother and more detailed, problem solving simpler, faster, better results and more enjoyable. Engagement and focus on tasks increased and much easier (not getting distracted or disheartened by mundane or previously difficult/boring but necessary tasks). Greater compassion to myself and my emotions, greater compassion to others and their emotions. Emotional and psychological stability. Increased perspective and objectivity on emotional and psychological events, feelings and circumstances, i.e. more rationality. More loving thoughts. Aversion to situations, people, emotions and technological addictions (smart phones, internet, TV, food that are not good for me). Increased and more marked patience and tolerance of many things, including bad drivers.
A story of one woman’s experience with microdosing. Rosie has just returned from the school run. She drops a bag of groceries on to her kitchen table, and reaches for a clear plastic cup, covered by a white hanky and sealed with a hairband. Inside is a grey powder;...
