Well, I found this site because I had a trip while huffing gas that made me stop doing it. Even though it has been years since I've huffed, I have always wondered since then what exactly happened to me. Thought I might get a little insight into what it was. Maybe it was a stroke or something??? Any ways, the trip was like this: I was living on a ranch in WA when I was like 14 and I used to go into the barns where the cans of gas for the tractors were kept. Sometimes I totally lost track of time when huffing. This time I was listening to music on my headphones and I blacked out. When I came to, I realized that I had ran a long way and jumped over several fences. I walked back to the barn and huffed some more. Then I saw flashing red lights and an alarm sound, like from a move where there was a nuclear power plant about to explode, that kind of alarm noise. I felt like everything was going to explode, the world. And I looked outside and the cows on the ranch became scared and started running. I walked out into the open to enjoy the music on my headphones but that is when the BAD thing happened....I saw myself as if I was nothing more than a bubble full of blood. I also saw a claw like sort of thing start to pop the bubble. It sounds crazy, but I honestly can say that I felt what it would feel like to be "popped" if you were only a bubble full of blood. it was the most painful thing i can imagine. The pain wasn't in any certain place in my body, because I was thinking of myself as a simple bubble. The pain wouldn't stop so I started running and yelling at the sky "HELP, PLEASE STOP!! Then I realized it was somehow from my headphones, so I took them off and it stopped. I started laughing because it seemed funny somehow, the idea of running from the headphones instead of taking them off. But then the pain came back to me. I was terrified of being stuck feeling it but it went away. For a few days I couldn't sleep because when ever I closed my eyes it would be there. It has been over ten years now and it has come back in a few times since but not overwhelmingly like that first time. I was just wondering if anyone had any insight to this kind of trauma, because I now have a need to understand it. I spent all this time trying not to think about what happened and I always thought that if it ever came back, then I wouldn't be able to cope. But in the last year or so I have had panic attacks and several times, I begin thinking about that experience and feeling it again. This is why I am interested in learning about it instead of just saying "that was some terrible stuff that I don't want to think about". Interested in any similar experiences or input. Thanks.
