    • Great post, thanks. Just to add to the clonazepam section.... Here is a system that I use which allows a lot of relief with minimal risk of addiction/tolerance (it's worked now for 10+ years). I use a 4 days on, 3 days off benzo treatment with 14 days off every 3 months to further clean the system: Clonazepam (1mg) - Thursday 6pm
      Clonazepam (1mg) - Friday 9am
      Clonazepam (1.5mg) - Saturday 9am
      Clonazepam (1.5mg) - Sunday 9am Please note that if I feel ok on any of these days and have no social situations, I often skip the dose that day. And, of course, you could pick and choose any days, but they need to be in blocks, eg, mon, tue, wed, thu. This works for me, but tread carefully as these are crazy addictive drugs... Maybe try 3 on, 4 off first and never skip the 2 weeks off part. This is essential to test your tolerance and addiction.
    • @jbalsa2 thanks for saying so. It's nice to have people who have some understanding of my situation. I am so scared that my life is ruined, and that I'm going to ruin the lives of my family as well. It especially kills me seeing my parents trying to help me, and not being able to tell them the truth cause I know it will only hurt them more. My dad just recovered from surgery, the last thing he needs to hear is his child is a fuckup.  I am going to talk to a psychiatrist soon, hopefully they will be able to prescribe me something that might help. 
    • i don't use mms at all, i just use cds.  I can take strong doses without side effect and the taste is tolerable if unpleasant.  I just put 5 or 6ml into a cup with a bit of water and a drop of dmso.  I did a few days of fairly consistent dosing every hour or so and got some good benefits as mentioned above but my hppd is still there but i feel less fatigued. I would not be surprised if chronic infection is an aspect of many modern maladies like the allergy epidemic and general inflammatory diseases.   When you took nac when did you dose it?  I do a day of taking cds then a couple of hours or so after my last dose i take nac to restore my cell glutathione levels overnight to protect them from cds during the day.  I would predict that if you took nac in the morning then took mms during the day the nac would load the blood with antioxidants before entering the cells and so neutralise the mms significantly.   Also i have had benefits despite my taking nac; however, it may be worth me having a go with no nac to see if it has a new level of effect.   My hppd onset was straight after taking magic mushrooms, but i did have a preexisting brain fog condition which could well be based on a chronic infection of some sort.  Nac helped a lot with fog but not the hppd itself.  I get the impression that some people are blocked from healing from hppd if they have an inflammatory problem, and it gets worse if they have some inflammatory foods or stress.  So if mms is removing a chronic infection it may be removing the block to healing rather than hppd being a direct brain infection.  Just speculating of course. I like ketosis and it sharpens me up a bit but doesn't have a significant effect on my hppd.

      Hey all!
      It's been nearly a year since I got hppd, and man was this year hard. Constantly feeling this sense of not knowing who I am and what's gonna happen. Honestly, i'm not vary happy considering the fact i kinda retracted my social presence in my life. Because of this i'm constantly ridiculed by my family for being weird. "Why don't you ever leave the house? Are you depressed?" Idk how to feel towards the people who are supposed to be there for me, especially my mom. I opened up to her about how i was feeling, and she completely disregarded what i said, saying I have no reason to be sad. Which really pissed me off because i can't tell her, "hey i did a fuck ton of drugs last year and now i feel constantly disassociated and i can't open my eyes without seeing the most fucked shit." So that's how i'm doing, in spite of her doings, i've picked up making music. If you're interested in listen, i'll leave a link in my profile. 
      Much love guys,

      Man, are you sure you have seen evil? Perhaps they were just "hardcore scumbags" so don't talk about "The Evil".
