"I was planning on microdosing for 30 days, three times every week, with a small quantity of psilocybin mushrooms. My routine involved brewing them in a tea and drinking it in the evening while at home. I did this every night for three consecutive days every week. However, I only ended up doing it for two weeks. Typically, I would only do half a stem and half a cap for each tea I brewed myself. The outcome was stellar, and I found myself to be far more creative and engaged in all of my activities and projects. I was more aware of what I wanted to do and it was terrific. I do not regret doing it at all! However, it started to get a little too overwhelming for me. I started getting headaches and I'd continually be thinking about things, I mean ALL DAY - concepts, goals, you name it! Even though I felt like a genius at the time, I found it scary. There was so much information surfacing, and I couldn't keep up with it. I had to pace myself so I stopped after the second week. This was one month ago, and I haven't taken mushrooms since. I've taken mushrooms multiple times in the past, but that was my first time microdosing. I intentionally experimented with microdosing for mental clarity, gaining more from it than I intended. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect. Now, I'm living a life that's more true to myself, but it's been a very lonely process. I'm so happy with where I'm going, but I simply can't dismiss the fact that it's been such a lonely path. It's tough to talk in-depth without getting too personal here, but I know people who experience microdosing know what I'm talking about. It almost feels like a secret society or something. I'm desperate to find others who know what I'm experiencing. I'd love to hear from anyone who thinks they can relate to what I'm talking about; thoughts, advice, anything."
