    Help The NNRF By Donating To HPPD Research! The Neurosensory Neuroregenerative Research Foundation (NNRF) is please to announced that is now officially an non profit 501c3 entity and can receive tax deductible donations to fund research into Hallucinogen Persistent Perception Disorder (HPPD) and Visual Snow (VS), disorders that historically have been grossly understudied and go under diagnosed. Our work is twofold; awarness & research. The NNRF currentlly has a donor who will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $100,000 for HPPD research. Research proposals and recruitment information will be posted in the first quarter of 2018 and will involve utilizing state of the art neuroimaging and genomic testing modalities. The planned sites are multinational with three in the United States, one in the United Kingdom and one in Australia. Such a collaborative effort to study HPPD has never happend which means your contribution will help tremendously in fully elucidating the neurobiological underpinnigs of HPPD which we hope will lead to a cure so if you, someone you love, a family member or friend has HPPD, please help donate and spread the word. This research will save lives and one day prevent psychedelic drug users the horror of EVER having to experience HPPD. Please Donate Today Thank You! *We are still working on developing a research team for Visual Snow so stay tuned for updates and fundraising information. http://www.neurogroup.org/donate/

    -My grandmother died October 13. We were close. -Nov 3, quit cigarettes, got on Nicorette spray. Quit nicotine November 15. -November 20, start drinking coffee all day every day, too lethargic from quitting smoking and felt like I had a constant dopamine deficiency. -HPPD got so much worse after quitting smoking. It's been 3 months, no urges or cravings to smoke whatsoever. Images got worse and became more body-centric. I'll see my ribcage in my head, my stomach, feel weird and trippy sensations. -I'll fluctuate between feeling horrible for a week or two to feeling 70-80%, one day I felt 90-95. The fluctuation and plateauing is worrying me. I just want to get better and stay at a constant 80%. I could live the rest of my life comfortably at 80%. -Sleep schedule the past 2 weeks has been insane. Staying up all day and night, and the next day to fix it. Staying up for 2 days straight. Getting 4 hours, 6, 12, 4, 6, 4, you get the picture. I feel when I'm at a consistent week at 8 hours a night I'll feel better. -Fixing my diet because I have GERD. Eating less, better, cut out sugar. -Attempting NoFap. -Applying to jobs. Looking for something that I can handle. ******** My life is still very, very stressful and there's a lot of family stuff going on that I didn't mention. I feel like if a lot of this external stress diminished my symptoms would get better. Sometimes I feel like I need a 3rd party perspective because I can't see all the issues at once. Hope you guys are doing alright.

    I have been on the forum for about 10 years now and it seems the answer is a clear YES.... not only can it come back, but it can come back much worse. Say no to drugs, y'all.... Avoid stress as much as possible, double check with the forum, facebook etc about any new meds you get prescribed.

    I suspect if you're lucky enough to have your symptoms clear up, and you resume taking psychedelics, then the chances of it coming back are very high. For whatever reason some of us are predisposed to this disorder and I doubt that vulnerability just dissapears along with the original symptoms.

    Since we don't know the pathophysiology of HPPD it's not sure if it can come back or not. I would not recommend going back to whatever drug gave u HPPD if u got it and now symptom free. It's like playing with fire.
