Alright, my first post. Ok so I have dosed on mushrooms about 4 times, SWIM's last one being somewhat traumatic and leaving me kind of down for about a week. Possible PTSS. But SWIM feel like he's returning to normal right now. SWIM also smoked pot for about a year and a half prior to this, with no problems. Ok well what I wanted to ask is: What are the chances that one will develop some sort of mental illness (psychosis, bi-polar disorder, depression, HPPD, skitzofrania, ect.) from taking LSD? Some of the stories out there have made me somewhat concerned about this before I dose. I have an aunt on his mother's side of the family who suffers from depression and is taking medication for that. On SWIM's father's side of the family, an uncle committed suicide recently after losing his battle to depression (however SWIM suspects that his depression may have been caused by his upbringing). Both of these people are related by blood, not marrige. I know that LSD can set off a gene that runs in the family (running gene) causing one of those disorders, but what about otherwise? And what are the chances that I would inheriet any of these mental problems? When answering please keep in mind what someone, somewhere said: Those blinded by their love of Lucy may not see her destructive properties. So please answer objectively. Thanks, SysD P.S. - I am also considering trying MDMA soon (just as a one time thing), does that have any adverse mental effects?
