Haha. It’s been ages since I took them but I didn’t take them for any illness. I took them to get high and that I certainly did and they were a blast.
Shrooooms! 😎 They make me laugh so much.

Yes, works wonders for depression. Impossible to find, but whatever

You and I had a disagreement over medical marijuana @Johntron9999 not too long ago. You were very against it but now I see you're wondering about shrooms. You must be pretty desperate for relief.

I suggest researching different strains of marijuana,not all are the same. I think that would be a safer,more gentle step to take rather than jumping up to shrooms.

Hugs

you can micro dose shrooms, you don't *have* to take a five gram dose

My first mushroom experience, over twenty years ago, saved my life. It was the one thing that gave me hope.

It's really hard finding them again, they are about the only thing I know could help me.

You can find the spores online and several easy growing methods.

I’m a user of medical marijuana also and it definitely helps me. I grow my own and make my own by products. I’ve been using since 1976 and have found the right strains for me. There’s so many ways to use it. There’s gummy bears, canna butter, canna oil , micro vaping etc. It’s also helped my ocd. There was a while that I stopped using and my ocd got so much worse. At the time I didn’t recognize my thoughts as ocd but do now.
I don’t use much at all. A small amount in the morning and evening before bedtime. Good luck whatever you decide.

I'm not sure whether they relieve depression/ anxiety but I do know they can make you see the outline of the Mona Lisa painting in the silhouette of once barren trees, change the color of clouds to become pastels, they can rearrange the stars to look like a circle with one central light, they can make trees wobble, gardens under artificial lighting can seem like the most zen thing ever and blossoming trees look like something out of a Disney Movie on steroids. But to be honest, I'd like to know whether they could work myself, kind of desperate for relief at this point in my life. Too bad I also have had recurring psychoses. But if you ask me psychosis, if it can be cured afterwards with antipsychotics, isn't near as bad as depression, which for me is quite permanent. :(
