As long as you don't start carrying around golden monkeys everything is probably fine, other than that brain tumor.Quote: RS
So a few days ago I was at work, dealing. Nothing happened earlier that was memorable or out of the ordinary. Anyway, I'm on a dead table (no one playing), and I notice one of those weird eye-fuzzies floating around. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9I2JJTfaw0 ) You know, the things that show up when you just wake up, or you stand up too quickly, or you push on your eyes for a little while and open 'em. Yeah, that.
Anyway, I think nothing of it. And a few minutes later, everything is getting really distorted looking. Like tunnel vision. Then my vision starts to look like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgbYd1wDsJs but not all over, just in patches. Like straight ahead there'd be a square that'd look like that, then another one that's up and to the left, another up to the right, and another down and to the right. Now I'm starting to get a little worried. Worst part is, I still got another 25 minutes or so before I go on break. Uh Oh.
A few minutes pass and all of a sudden I'm in this weird almost out-of-this-world state, like I'm on acid, shrooms, or super duper baked out of my mind. Like if someone's talking to me, I hear them talking but I'm not registering what they're saying. And now I'm thinking what the f*ck is going on? I'm in no position to be on a table right now dealing. Of course, I should'a asked a floor person or a dealer standing floor (dual-rate I guess you call them) to tap me off the table so I can go to the bathroom or get some water or something. But in whatever mental state I was in.....it was like I couldn't form a sentence or talk to someone. Feels like I'm trapped in my mind -- like I'm paralyzed and want to say "Help me!!!" but I can't say anything. [I wasn't paralyzed, though.] Oh yeah, I also got really hot and started to sweat a good amount [not like dripping wet, though].
Finally it's break time and I'm still feeling all f*cked up. Ten or fifteen minutes later, everything is back to normal.....and it's like nothing ever happened.
I haven't been feeling stressed out, depressed or sad, nothing like that. Haven't done any drugs for a few years now. I hadn't drank any alcohol before my shift or taken any medication or nothing. Wasn't sleep deprived either. Just totally, out of the random, not explainable.
So now here's the weird part. A few years ago (2 or maybe 3?) when I was in college, a very similar thing happened to me. I was watching The Walking Dead on Netflix in my dorm room one night and all of a sudden I start to feel really hot. Had a little water, but that didn't help. A few moments later, I get sick to my stomach and I head toward the bathroom. Throw up in the toilet a good amount....and all of a sudden I go into this weird crazy state (like the one described above) where it feels like I'm on acid/shrooms, I go into some mental trip state thing and all hell breaks loose. I don't remember the specifics, but, probably 30-45 minutes later, everything winds down and I'm back to my normal self and everything is A OK.
So yeah, that's my "trip report".
What you're describing is almost exactly what migraine headaches feel like to me.
Sounds like a mini stroke or blood sugar to me.
