My girlfriend wants to do mushrooms for the first time soon, and we were thinking possibly this weekend. I'm now a bit concerned because I remember reading that you should avoid drugs like psilocybin or LSD if you have a family history of severe mental illness, which my girlfriend does. There's no schizophrenia in her family or anything, but her mother was severely bipolar and just plain crazy. I never met the mother because she killed herself 4 years ago. My girlfriend doesn't exhibit any symptoms, but her mother's illness only started when she was around 40 years old. My girlfriend is 26.
Any comments? Has anyone had any personal experience with something like this?
