so swim shot a decent amount of some middle level quality shards.. he was high and felt the normal things that happens when you shoot meth. then after maybe 30 seconds, swim got a mild headache.. and a overall "bad feeling".. i ignore the bad feeling it happens sometimes, but i stood up maybe an hour later to walk and get some water and started to passout.. i had to grab onto the walls.. rest for 2 minutes.. then continue walking into the kitchen, once in the kitchen swim collapsed, not all the way, still grabing onto the counter, but pretty much went to the ground.. where i sat for 3 minutes till my friend could help me walk back to the bedroom.. swim hasn't moved much and banged up a few more times.. feels better not like passing out.. but know if she tried to walk or stood up to fast would fall on her ass.. i think its impurities.. and shooting whatever dirty ass cut they were using.. what the fuck happend?
swim banged meth, stood up and tried to walk but couldnt.. was falling to the ground and hanging onto the walls like she was drunk, wtf happend?
SWIM feels that way anytime he does enough meth, even pure glass looking shards. Usually after one day/night of meth, he'd get light-headed upon standing, feel weak, and would have to stop. It's probably the reason he never got addicted. That and he likes to eat and sleep, so meth wasn't doing so well for him. This has been with snorted or IV meth, and thinks it very well might be due to blood pressure..
I said high bp, low blood sugar could cause passing out. Are you a doctor? Are you sure of your info, provide source please . Cus I've seen people having panic attacks (where your BP rises) pass out/faint from it. If I'm off base tell me, but I don't think I'm wrong. Give some sources that says high BP can't causes lightheadedness that leades to fainting.
Not trying to pick a fight at all, but I disagree that high BP can't cause fainting.
JC, is that your's? What is it, a 9 or a .45? Fuck, is it a .380? It's hard to tell in a pic. Most girl don't know their guns. No offense !

Reason: goin' to Rosedale
MovingPictures, I was actually referring to Mr Peppercorn and GirlSlangsDope's posts, not yours, you are correct low blood sugar can definitely cause it. While I couldn't find anything that explicitly says high bp cannot cause fainting, this is what I did find:

The human body has zillions of processes going on all at once. Occasionally "something" can go amiss such as rapid drop in blood pressure from standing up too quickly. Some people who actually faint or nearly faint have a low blood pressure condition. But once the fear kicks in, in these cases, the blood pressure rises and the feeling may decrease.

Factors that influence fainting are fasting long hours, taking in too little food and fluids, low blood pressure, hypoglycemia physical exercise in excess of the energy reserve of the body, emotional distress, pregnancy and lack of sleep Orthostatic hypotension, cused by standing up too quickly or being in a very hot room can also cause fainting.
Nothing I could find suggested that hypertension could be a cause for fainting, and as you see that first link actually suggested that it might prevent fainting. If swiy's friend fainted from a panic attack perhaps it was from one of these related factors?

Some people who actually faint or nearly faint have a low blood pressure condition. But once the fear kicks in, in these cases, the blood pressure rises and the feeling may decrease. Some others have had a temporary medical condition such as a viral infection, allergy, vertigo from an inner ear disorder, anemia, sinusitis, heat exhaustion, poor eating habits, low blood sugar, salt depletion, etc. that may result in the feeling of, or actual passing out.
If swiy friend passed out from having panic attacks, well swim doesnt know what's going on; he isnt a doc. Perhaps one of these related factors caused it? Either way, swims point is that it is very unlikely for a stimulant to cause one to pass out, unless one is in fact falling into cardiac arrest or something.
swins heart beats really fast when this happens, just like when anybody else gets high, apparently i usually have very normal blood pressure, but i do take cholesterol pills, im really thinking its because i take Prozac.. so swim is going to stop taking the Prozac a few weeks before her next re-up so he/she can get high and sell his/her dope.
and that is a .45, most 1911's are, unless its .38 super, my favorite round is /357 sig tho, i have a glock in .357 Sig, and another glock in .40cal. but the ol .45 has a special place in my heart lol, and yes im a girl. lol
GirlSlangsDope added 1 Minutes and 4 Seconds later...
i dont think its a panic attack, im not panicing in my head but my body maybe?

Reason: Automerged Doublepost
I can venture an educated guess: Hyperthermia (see symptoms below).
SWIM hooked up with a 22yo and the two smoked up a goodly amount of shards together in a very short period of time. During the night, the boy got up to pee and a few minutes after, SWIM heard a loud crash in the bathroom. Turns out the youngster had passed out on the toilet (breaking SWIM's beloved ceramic kitty toilet bowl brush holder on the way down to the floor). SWIM revived the boy and tried to help him back into bed, but he passed out again. Then he gave little fellow some water, let him rest, but every time the kid stood up, he'd pass out.
This went on throughout the evening and morning... Dizziness, passing out, feeling gross, then feeling ok, then dizziness again and passing out... over and over. SWIM babysat the kid, giving him water and food and letting him sleep, and after a while, the little whippersnapper would be able to stand for a bit, but after about 5 or 10 minutes on his feet, would buckle at the knees and fall to the ground.
After about 12-hour period of this nonsense, the lad took it upon himself to make a cup of tea and fell straight back -- Herman Munster-style -- onto SWIM's kitchen floor. Somehow, the sound of the boy's skull bouncing off the hardwood floor cleared the fog from SWIM's mind and he thought, "Hmmm... perhaps I should ask my nurse friend whether he thinks the kid should be taken to the ER." Upon inquiry, said nurse informed SWIM that a) the kid should have gone to the ER hours ago and b) SWIM was a fucking idiot for not having taken him. A friend of the youth fetched the cherub from SWIM's place and took him to hospital. A short while later, SWIM called the boy to check in on him. Fortunately, the kid was alright and the mystery was solved. SWIM then learned of this lovely, rarely-known little side-effect of methamphetamine use called Hyperthermia.
Hyperthermia is an elevated body temperature due to failed thermoregulation. Hyperthermia occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. When the elevated body temperatures are sufficiently high, hyperthermia is a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment to prevent disability and death.
The most common causes are heat stroke and adverse reactions to drugs, particularly those that affect the central nervous system. The heat-regulating mechanisms of the body eventually become overwhelmed and unable to effectively deal with the heat, causing the body temperature to climb uncontrollably.
Hyperthermia differs from fever in the mechanism that causes the elevated body temperatures: a fever is caused by a change in the body's temperature set-point. The opposite of hyperthermia is the more commonly-known hypothermia, which occurs when an organism's temperature drops below that required for normal metabolism and is caused by prolonged exposure to low temperatures, like falling into cold water.
SWIM is very lucky (and grateful) the kid didn't have a stroke or drop dead in his apartment.
Thank god im not the only one, when I do meth I usually do it before bed so I just end up laying in bed all night for maybe 8 hours without even moving. But when I get up all of a sudden at sunrise to go pee, I would feel very dizzy walking down the hallway and then everything would start randomly spinning real fast as I stop walking, then everything goes blank. I then find myself falling on my ass in the bathroom while trying to hold myself up with the doorknob. But It may not be the cut thats causing you to faint/pass out. If you suddenly stand up with a empty stomach after laying down for a long period of time it will usually cause people to faint.
Thank god I thought there was something wrong with me, I found myself in the kitchen slowly falling sideways to my ass trying to hold on to the stove handle, then I walked back to my room and did it again but this time I didn't have nothing to hold onto so I just kind of awkwardly sat down!
i cant remember if it was a time i'd been smoking or if i'd been shooting, but i do know that i'd been using basically non-stop for months at the time.. it was summer, and i was sitting on the porch outside letting my dog go out, & i started to feel funny. i went to stand up and i almost collapsed, tried to get up again and basically fell in the yard. barely caught myself, & was so panicked/freaked out about it that i almost wished the neighbor across the street had noticed & come to help... but that would have ended badly.
i remember decided that I thought it was probably a combination of dehydration, overheating, low blood sugar, and needing to sleep. i cant remember for sure, cuz it's all a blur, but i remember drinking water, and i think i ate and went to bed. that was the only time that'd happened, and i hated that i was alone at the time.
