    • Thankyou for the feedback, I agree very strongly with your statement about self reflection. More often than not when I am giving advice I relate it to my own life as well!
    • I think often times we know the 'correct' course of action but yet don't take heed because of our egos, addiction, arrogance, chance or any other reason we can come up with.  I totally hear you on that one, I can give great advice but often times cannot apply it to my own life.  However fear can be a good tool for combating this.  For example not tripping again for fear of consequences; I've decided to push that aside many times and am paying the price.  Yet I still think about it; it's easy to say as an outsider that that is a terrible course of action but when you're in the midst of life it's not that simple. And of course a lot of life is random so many things are a gamble.  Anyway giving others advice is always good because it forces us to reflect on ourselves; thats's why forums and groups like this one are so powerful.  Together we are strong and can overcome anything.  I wish you the best, if you ever want to chat let me know.  Take care!
    • Once again thank you for your  thoughts; sobriety is probably the way for me too.  It's hard to start, I've had periods of it which were both wonderful and extremely difficult.  What type of math did you study?  My semester starts next week; very excited although it's been a while so it's going to be tough.  I'm taking measure theory, complex analysis and algebra.  It is always about what we want; however sometimes we knowingly go against the grain seemingly against our will.

      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".
