    I’m brand new to this board as this is my first post. You can call me Banana. I suspect that I may be in withdrawal but in all honesty I have no idea what’s wrong with me and that’s what scares me most.

    A couple weeks ago, I was hanging out with a coworker who was also interested in me in a more romantic way, if you could call it that. He was in possession of some weed and gave me some to smoke. I had smoked it before and it had never had any adverse effects on me then. But right after I smoked it, I fell over on the floor and went into partial paralysis for almost an hour and even after that, it took me a while before I could even walk. I thought for the longest time that I had been date raped, but that wasn’t it. It was the most terrifying experience of my entire life.

    Since then (about 2 1/2 weeks ago), I’ve had 11 seizures (or what I believe to be seizures), some of them brief, others more violent. I’ve also been very short of breath and have had great difficulty breathing. I know I’m not in terrific shape, but this problem has come on quickly. I’ve also had random chest convulsions, had felt very fatigued, and have had extreme anxiety and a panic attack last night as well.

    Judging from all of these experiences and from what I’ve read, I’m quite sure that my coworker laced the weed we smoked with PCP without telling me. He had used hard drugs before, which would explain why he was unaffected while I almost went unconscious. I’ve been to the ER twice and they have tested for this by doing blood work, taking a urine sample, doing blood sugar and pressure, an EKG, and monitoring my breathing. They told me that everything is completely normal, which would mean that the drug is already out of my system and gone forever. I am sure I am in the withdrawal stage right now and it is really interfering with my life. I was doing very well, working hard and I was happy before all this happened. I am terrified that I’ll never be able to fix it and I’m just overall really, really scared. I’m going to a doctor on Thursday afternoon to get checked out more closely.

    I know that we can’t give med advice on these forums, but does anyone have any advice for what to do to take better care of myself, to calm myself down, or what steps I could do to get myself back on the right track (aside from going to the doctor)?
