So, after doing a fair bit of research I'm leaning to the conclusion that I had a drink spiked on me last night at a work party in the laughter lounge. After only a couple of glasses of wine, a beer and a couple of shots of rum I was hallucinating, passing out, vomiting, ranting, raving and completely enfeebled - and those are the bits of the night I can remember because of the gaps in my memory.
I got home as soon as I started feeling wrong, made myself sick and followthebird tended to me until I was fit to get myself to bed.

Edit: As followthebird pointed out, I was in the bathroom for roughly three hours and I don't remember more than ten minutes of it.

Yeah, most of the crowd was non work people, there were about forty of us and at roughly the time I reckon it happened I was talking to one of the members of my team, a tiny french lady who I reckon was the real target of whatever the hell it was.

Yeah, mr_wombat came home early. He did not have much to drink. I watched over him for a good portion of the night. What I saw was definitely the result of a drug other than alcohol. Probably GHB. My cousin had his drink spiked before, a friend of my sisters had her drink spiked before and I had a very similar experience years ago too.

My cousin and my sisters friend were brought straight to hospital and their bloods were tested. I wish I had brought mr_wombat to the hospital last night to check out.

Jesus. Are you going to report it?

As it turns out, there isn't a huge amount of point unfortunately. I spoke to the hospital about my suspicions and they informed me that almost without exception, substances that cause those kinds of reaction are gone out of your system within five hours of ingestion. That I immediately went home as soon as I started feeling "funny" and deliberately (and not so deliberately) made myself sick would have shortened the effects even more. GHB seems like it might be the culprit judging from the list of symptoms and how they match up with the scary crazy from last night.

So between the complete lack of evidence by the time I was even in a position to think about it and the fact that I couldn't even begin to guess where it came from, there isn't much point. I'll have a quiet word with a few people on monday about what happened and maybe warn some of the newer people but without even a shred of evidence to point at anyone I don't want to start spreading rumours about a chemical rapist working in the office when it could have been any one of several hundred other people in the club.

It might be reporting it anyway on the off chance that there's some sort of pattern, even if nothing can be proved in your case.

What the? Blinkin' 'eck. I'm assuming it's passed out of your system by now though, hope things are better today and glad you got home relatively unscathed. And that's all I can say without descending into swearing incoherently about people and scum.

That is really scary. Glad you came through unscathed.

Fuuuuck, that's really scary. Glad you're ok.

Sorry to hear it. Have to say though that the odds are that if fucked up shit like that is going to happen to anyone it will be you!

Jesus dude! Glad you're okay ...
