In other news, get your old trippy-hippie garb out, looks like Johns Hopkins is going to start doing fresh research on psychedelics!

Quote:
On Wednesday, Johns Hopkins Medicine announced the launch of the Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research, to study compounds like LSD and psilocybin for a range of mental health problems, including anorexia, addiction and depression.

I did a sh*t ton of psychedelics. Far more than was probably healthy. I don't claim to have remained completely sane.

But I don't suffer from anorexia, addiction, or depression so apparently it worked on that.

I've revealed this on other forums but for some reason I never made mention of it here at home.

I'm on the autism spectrum. I'm an Aspie.
Asperger Syndrome
To say I was a strange kid is an understatement.
I literally viewed people, even my siblings and parents, as "machines" as a child, and I spent as little time interacting with people as possible. My world consisted of anything with switches, dials or knobs.

Psychedelics broke me out of the round, windowless concrete room that was my mind, and opened my consciousness to the world around me, and the people in it. (age fifteen)

Acid, shrooms and peyote literally were "miracle drugs" for this Ranter. They are the reason I am able to have rewarding and fulfilling human relationships today.

PS: I wasn't officially diagnosed until age 46 by a VA neurologist.
But it all made perfect sense. All the puzzle pieces as to why I was such a weirdo suddenly fit together.
It was actually something of a relief to understand finally, what made me tick.

You didn't seem like that much of a weirdo when I visited you... putting you in a mental lineup with most of my friends and you appear to be the normal one - no offense intended... LOL

I was pretty opened up by psychedelics around age 17, myself. I was pretty set on going to Med School before then, but I realized there were other things I liked a lot better. Just for fun I took a lot of Occupational Electronics in high school, and was pretty much the mad inventor in those classes. For example, one of my inventions was a working model of learned behavior, complete with stimuli, responses, reward, remembering, and forgetting. The neurologist's son who made a model of a single neuron was probably the only other person in the entire school who understood what I had done. No prize in the school science fair, because nobody understood I had built a (primitive) AI in 1967.

Psychedelics helped me see that I could do what I really wanted in life. It's been a blast so far.

When I was a little one, I was VERY weird, circus wierd, carnival attraction weird. Yeah of course I seemed relatively old, decrepit and well adjusted when you saw me. I'm talking about when I was five, seven, eleven, thirteen, those years and the ones in between.

Everyone who knew me back in my childhood says I am completely different from the kid they knew.

I'll bet you never knew you had a doppelganger back in 1967, 'Ernie' from My Three Sons.
