Diminshed cognition and reading comprehension

I've been reading for about a year and would say that I've gotten better at grappling with difficult texts, but after a first time experience with LSD 2 weeks ago, I noticed that my ability to read and write has diminshed tenfold. I am confused, primarily because psychedelics are known to be non toxic and we had the stuff tested beforehand. Admittedly, the trip got pretty bad by the last few hours, but I didnt think it would affect my ability to read and understand information for this long. Is there anyway to redevelop my ability to read and understand information? ive been taking fish oil and lions mane's suppmements while exercising and getting 8 hours of sleep but I still feel incredibly stupefied

    Stop taking the supplements and let your body readjust. Read more to read well again. 2 weeks is when shit *starts* to return to normal.

      Every case is different. You aren't alone though. I and many many others have experienced simmilar with all types of drugs. I say don't worry too too much. The brain is amazing. Think of this as getting a blister on your big toe. It'll take a few weeks or even a month or two but slowly and surely the body will put itself back together and you'll be good as new. Take care

      I'm not OP but I'm curious, why would this effect even occur? is it a normal side effect when taking psychedelics? I've never taken any drugs and I primarily encounter information about them as related to psychology (studies that deal with how psychedelics can help treat various pathologies), but I always assumed that there are drugs that do not affect your cognition, at least not after taking them one time

        LSD drastically alters sense data to such a degree that differentiation between objects becomes difficult but pattern recognition is heightened drastically. Reality becomes more holistic and fluid while objects become more relational and interwoven with other objects, as opposed to being separate and self-contained. This is only part of it.

        Mild representations. Try and make sense of that for about 12 hours straight and then go back to reading words on a page lol

        I don't know why you would have thought there are drugs that don't alter your cognition. That's literally the definition of a drug.

          Not that they don't alter your cognition, that they have lasting effects after one trip

          you now realize that there's a reason psychedelics are heavily pushed

          because they want to dumb people down? I feel like there already are far more effective and efficient methods that are already in use

            they want to deconstruct their values, whatever those values might be, and isn't the suggestion of practical use in pharmacological therapy that it would have a lasting anyway?
            in any case, hallucinogens can absolutely alter your whole sensorium. permanently. think about ergotism for example, at those doses it was fatal and if not fatal, permanent brain damage was the result.

        you're consuming modern propaganda which asserts this only for the sake of legalization by 'experts' who grew up idolizing terence mckenna and ram dass. they pursue the medicinal narrative because it's shown success in subverting the laws protecting the largely ignorant public who can't be bothered to understand or research the risks of these substances.

    bro, you got what is known in the old hippie tongue as "permafried". this is the danger of all this new psychedelic therapy nonsense masquerading as medicine. it's a frickin intense poison that causes hallucinations, it's not the panacea of enlightenment. you might be like this for a long, long time. I sincerely hope not, but it's been known to last for upwards of a year. Learn from this lesson, you might have to rebuild a lot of who you are from scratch.
    Be patient, don't get discouraged. You're lucky you have what you have left. Don't go chasing more drugs to try to realign yourself, you'll only make it worse.
    Seriously. Don't.

      I will say this, just because it -can- last for that long, doesn't mean it -will-, i'm just saying that a few of my friends permafried and it took quite some time for the anhedonia and classification errors to dissipate. My hallucinogen of choice was always pharmahuasca once I did the research, but you get the horror up front with that stuff. all of my experiences with acid have been largely negative (except an early candyflipping experience)
      just take it like you're starting over from scratch, do not give in to despair, and don't try to "hit the ground running", because you'll just stumble and become frustrated on top of it all. Just be patient and leave the lunatic drugs to the actual lunatics.

    The LSD triggered latent schizophrenia. Happens sometimes, sorry OP but you're fricked for life now

    OP here, reading these replies are making me genuinely worried now, is it really possible that ive permafried myself? or even worse developed schizophrenia? I legitimately dont know what to do and the idea that I'll have to deal with this forever is depressing me alot

      i told you what to do. don't despair, just stay away from drugs and start from square one with reading comprehension.
      it's doubtful you're now a schizophrenic, you'd very likely have enough symptoms that you'd end up hospitalized for a few weeks until things cooled down if that were the case, and even then it'd be drug induced.
      i will say, this level of fear is something you should have had *before* entering the world of hallucinogens, and i'm definitely sad that you had to get burned first. Just chill, keep at the exercise, let yourself find baseline, and let your mind reorient and heal. It might take a few days, it might take a coupla months. Just don't despair.

        Thanks man genuinely, I guess the fact that I still have what I do in the first place is lucky enough, I really regret doing it at all but know ill just try to put my energy into relearning things

          being concerned and self-aware enough to know your baseline has shifted at all is a good sign, the really bad cases i've seen were ones in which the dude was practically himself sans emotion and utterly oblivious that anything had changed.

    Drugs turning people into moron hippies isn't just a random boomer meme, it's grounded in reality. What you're describing is not super uncommon. Another big thing is people who do LSD a couple of time and permanently suffer from optical problems like visual snow, or persistent hallucinations.
    Either way the only thing you can do is ride it out and hope you didn't permanently fry your brain. As for supplements, look into creatine. It's know for it's effect on muscle building, etc. but what most people don't know is that it's also great for the brain.
