Hey, my name is Priscilla, and I am a female 23 year old. I went to the high school in Boston, and went to the husky college and then I moved so now I live in Georgia. I work at Starbucks and sometimes I babysit children. I know its bad and not good for you but I'm addicted to the drug, Ecstasy. I started using the drug when I was 19 years old. The short term physical effects that happens on my body is that I get confused at times, when it's the most simplest thing to understand, I get depressed at times, I wake up in the middle of the night for no reason and sometimes I can go back to sleep but most times so that is called very bad sleep problems. I also get severe anxiety, paranoia, drug cravings, so I have to take an ecstasy pill every 1 hour or so. Due to my constant use of ecstasy, I often have muscle tensions, I sometimes faint, have the chills for no reason, or I would sweat a lot. I have involuntary teeth clenching, blurred tension, and nausea. The long term physical effects that happen on my body is I have long lasting brain damage affecting through and my memory, damage to portions of my brain that regulate critical functions such as learning, sleeping, and emotion. I could have kidney failure, hemorrhaging, convulsions, psychosis, cardio vascular collapse, and I could also die. The mental effects on my body that are short term is that I have the feeling of closeness with others and wanting to touch others, a loss of inhibitions increase in heart rate and blood pressure, and having seizures are possible. I've only had one seizure that lasted a couple seconds. The mental effects on my body that are long term is that ultimately may damage the cells in my brain that has an important role in the regulation of mood, appetite, learning, and memory. I lost my family awhile ago. Right before I moved to Georgia, I said somethings I didn't mean to say when I was craving the drug. I haven't spoken to them since. I have a few other friends. All ecstasy friends , actually I don't really know if we are friends we just exchange and do ecstasy together. I have never seen them sober from this drug. In Husky college before I started ecstasy, I had a really close friend, Diana. She told me to stay away from drugs and alcohol but I didn't listen. As soon as she found my pill under my bed in our dorm, she moved out and hasn't talked to me since. I usually take ecstasy in pill form but sometimes I crush it up and snort it. I usually use the money I make baby sitting for the pill. It cost a lot, almost 35.50 per pill. I'm able to get it for cheaper sometimes when one of my "ecstasy friends" is feeling generous. I've been taking 2-3 pills a day lately. I discovered ecstasy at a rave which takes place every Friday night. That's where I get my weekly supply. I take it at home mostly, with some in my purse for emergency. Ecstasy is my first drug I've taken. My "ecstasy friends" have pressured me to take other drugs but I don't want to get any deeper into this hole. I really started this whole addiction when I was in college because I was stressed. I had just lost my boyfriend and I was failing two of my classes. My mood increased when I took the drug so it felt nice. The cops caught us one time at a rave, luckily I wasn't caught because I hadn't gotten my supply yet. I was so glad I wasn't caught because I really needed the money my job a Starbucks was giving me. So far, I haven't been caught there but there has been close calls. One time I was taking one in the backroom when someone walked in. I lied when they asked what it was. I said it was something for my anxiety and I needed to take it. I have told myself many times that I need to quit it but what can I say, I'm in love with the drug that's going to take my life away.
These are the ones I bought today
