My anxiousness is basically targeted round my intense, demanding job. I presently work 16 hour days 6 days per week simply to barely keep up to the mark.
I have been seeing a therapist for a number of years with out a lot enchancment. I take dietary supplements together with CBD, Ashwaganda and theonine which have been questionably efficient (suspect placebo impact). My physician prescribed cannibis to assist me sleep and tha works very properly. I’ve been meditating for the final 30 years. I’ve chosen to not take any prescription drugs for work as a result of my job requires that my thoughts be very sharp always.
I have been studying about microdosing for a number of months and at last bought some Golden Trainer mushrooms. I’ve ordered a scale nevertheless it hasn’t arrived but resulting from pandemic associated postal delays.
I have been taking about 1/16 of a TSP of floor mushrooms each 2-Three days. I do not really feel any intoxicating results at that dose. In the future I took Three occasions that quantity and I felt a bit of completely different – positively too excessive a dose for microdosing.
Response thus far:
BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!!
– My work is extraordinarily demanding. I’ve a packed appointment schedule and sick sufferers booked on high of that, together with following up on different sick sufferers and returning cellphone calls. All people feels they’re my precedence and don’t tolerate ready. I am often in a close to state of panic inside an hour of beginning. My coronary heart races, I sweat profusely and my chest tightens.
Over the last week I’ve had an underlying calmness. I am nonetheless working as quick as I can to maintain up however I’ve had no panic signs. I appear to ‘roll with the punches’ higher. There aren’t any intoxicating results, if something I really feel like I’ve extra psychological acuity. I can learn and perceive a medical document sooner. I can bear in mind longer strings of numbers.
– My meditation has considerably improved. I observe a meditation primarily based on observing my respiratory. Sounds easy nevertheless it’s not. For the final couple of years it has been tough to maintain my thoughts from wandering from the breath. When that occurs I rely my breaths. 1-10 after which repeat. Usually my thoughts would wander and I might cease counting at 3-Four breaths.
Since microdosing it has been straightforward to concentrate on my breath. I can rely my breaths 1-10 time and again with out shedding focus. I’ve by no means been in a position to concentrate on my breath this lengthy in 30 years of meditation (besides after I attended a 10 day meditation retreat). This can’t be attributed to placebo impact.
I used to be starting to surprise how lengthy I might proceed working. I’ve by no means purchased lottery tickets till just lately as I have been seeing them as my solely hope to flee my work. Now I’ve new hope. Thanks to all of the individuals concerned with this discussion board for introducing me to microdosing.
