You haven't lived until you've come close to death. About two hours ago I came near to a comatose state here at home. I can hear the bells, uh, uh ... nope, sorry.
For those of you that don't know I have a very unique disease called Emery Drifuss Muscular Dystrophy. It alone is a very powerful stranglehold on all muscles in the body, this includes the heart and lungs which for myself are those I have to keep a constant eye on. They can be naughty...
For Christmas my buddies whipped up a block of chocolate (AERO bars) with a special treat from the non-forest floor bed. According to the vaults of erowid I have broken one of my personal all time goals. Experienced EXTREME time dilatation.

Not only that, when everything took effect I found nothing I felt ... felt. Slowly over the progression emotions were blown up and silenced. Senses crossed hugely, as things I saw were being processed directly in to words without thought.

The worst part was when I found out that because of my rare condition, my trip as not only powerful but it came without oxygen! Taking 8 huge gasps of air every minute, personally because I couldn't feel anything anyway I wasn't sure if I was getting air. If I had stopped thinking about breathing I would have stopped completely.
What creeped me out the most was the time dilatation. Minutes took so long, or no time at all. Like somehow my video card blew a capacitor and just encountered a bottle neck, then suddenly dropped off all the frames and I was fast forwarded 5 minutes a head. How, what, hunh?
It was 4:10 for a good 30 minutes, I swear.
Now I'm just downstairs watching Dots Data Cafe on late night TV while typing this. Whats even more amusing is that after all this all I can think about is how the guy on Dots Data Cafe is just as pathetic as he was back when he started ...
