      Lewis, DM, Faces of HPPD: Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder Patient Survey Results and a Descriptive Analysis of Patient Demographics, Medical Background, Drug Use History, Symptoms, and Treatments.  Addictive Disorders and their Treatments. Forthcoming 2019. 

      . . . I contacted the publisher and obtained permission to publish a summary of the results (the important data!) and I created an infographic that provides you all the results.  I am including it here as a .pdf file, attached. It’s reader-friendly, and I hope it provides insight.

    • I've been told the SSL certificate is something that needs to be purchased from the domain registrar. 
    • forum costs are $45 a month. As of right now, i'm in the position to pay that, but if you want to port it to a new server, that would be cool. No idea about https error (I do not get this). Hopefully our coder friend above can help out.
    • Never give up.  We're given this amazing opportunity to witness whatever "this" is.  There are a number of us old folks in here who have dealt with this disorder for a long time and we're all doing surprisingly well.  It's easy to fall into despair.  I sure did early on.  I look at it as a disability.  If I had lost my eyesight or lost a limb, what can be done?  Do I bail on life or get up each day and do the best I can?  As for not caring, there are folks in here who do care.  People trying different techniques, prescriptions, and lifestyle changes that might help.  People share what they find and they wouldn't do that if they didn't care.  Do the big corporate interests care?  No, they just care about how much money they can squeeze out of everyone.  It's heartless, and it isn't fair.  As a species we could do so much better. This disorder can be so hard to deal with.  Throw trying to live, and it's even harder, at times ridiculous.  Personally, I wouldn't trade this opportunity to be here for anything with or without hppd. I realize I'm babbling again.  I guess being a space shot is also permanent in my case. Hang in there, and I hope you continue to share in this forum.  You never know how your experiences might help someone in the future.

      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,
      Andrew G
