After our daughter’s death I was overwhelmed by pain and anxiety. Microdosing home-grown mushrooms helped me cope
Yeah, seemingly psilocybin (in conjunction with therapy) can help with issues based on repetitive thought patterns (anxiety, depression, addiction), but should be avoided if you have schizophrenia. Any study I've read about generally won't take people with schizophrenia (or maybe even subjects who have a family history of it).I haven't taken psilocybin mushrooms in a dozen years & then some. I remember when I was in high school I was selling them!
These days I can't afford to mess around, and, as some of you know, it doesn't mix well with my condition. I'm pretty stable, living with schizophrenia. More so when I avoid psychedelic treats. Anything psychoactive, actually, is pretty much out of the question for me. I was unprepared for that initially. But I'm used to the idea now and comfortable being sober. It's all good. B-)
Haven't listened to to this yet, but there's some really fantastic research being done with MDMA to treat PTSD, depression, etc. here in the states. They're getting some really promising results the last time I checked
This research is something I have also taken an interest in, I’ve read some very interesting and encouraging articles from the US about treating PTSD suffering war veterans with MDMA. Sounds like some good ground is being covered there.Haven't listened to to this yet, but there's some really fantastic research being done with MDMA to treat PTSD, depression, etc. here in the states.

It's really not that far off being a licensed treatment at all - think they're talking 2022 in the U.S. But it's the combo of the drug and therapy that's important. Looks like it could be eventually used on much younger people (as in kids) too - think that's part of later trials.I don’t think I’ve got PTSD, yet, but I’ve been self treating for a few years now just in case
Yup, this correct. In the 70s and 80s they emergency scheduled a lot of drugs. This was done without much thought and mostly to force people who are convicted of dealing to get mandatory minimum sentences when convicted. Getting a drug rescheduled is a massive undertaking, it took over a decade to allow MDMA in a clinical setting. Same with marijuana, its still a schedule 1, and its ridiculous.It's the "illegal" part. Once a drug is considered "class one" here it becomes really difficult for even legitimate researchers at universities obtain the materials and provide dosage to patient. The drugs are considered of no medicinal value.
