    • If you're absolutely sure that you have visual snow and HPPD symptoms, I would recommend that you stay away from weed, as it really does hinder your chances of recovery. I found that after I quit weed I had less severe symptoms of depersonalization and derealization than when I did smoke weed. I also found that smoking weed would hugely intensify my HPPD. By the sounds of it, your HPPD isn't debilitating either, so why not stick out staying sober for a while, maybe you'll get better in time - then smoke away after you've recovered. That's what I'd do in your shoes.
    • I am a minor sufferer of HPPD, I mostly get visual snow and eye floaters. How did you find smoking weed affected your HPPD? I have been smoking it as long as I have had symptoms (4-5 months) and I would like to continue to do so if possible because not helps me in relation to wellness and mental health
    • Did smoking weed make your symptoms worse when you weren't high or just during the high and return to the normal level when sober? I am asking because I developed mild HPPD symptoms 4-5 months ago (visual snow and eye floaters mostly)  but I would like to continue smoking weed if possible because it brings me a lot of wellness and mental health benefits

      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
