This can depend on the background of the individual. When I was 14, I was curious about magic mushrooms and decided to eat them to find out what happens. They were fresh and legal in the UK at the time. I had these extremely powerful feelings surround me. I was not scared at all. It was like the things I knew and loved so much easily fitted in with the rest of the world around me. My imagination expanded and I enjoyed speaking to people more.
6 months later, I did some self tests and discovered that my AQ had decreased from 24 to 15. I still believe myself to have autistic traits, but I am no longer afraid of any consequences. This helped me to realise one important goal in life: survival of oneself and protection of the spirit that holds the body together. I had taken a huge step in life and could not return to my past self.
