    • Are the symptoms of anxiety, depression, derealization and depersonalization a result of the way we react to our mental condition and visual disturbances? Or are these symptoms a DIRECT result of HPPD itself and out of our control.  I can totally deal with these mild visuals for the rest of my life but I don't want to be permanently anxious or depressed. What do you guys think? Are people with HPPD here still looking healthy? I've lost my orange glow to the stress from this disorder. I'm becoming paler and more anxious. Are people able to manage their anxiety successfully here and find joy in everyday life?
    • No, I don't think so. If so it's not because of HPPD, but rather genes and lifestyle. If you have HPPD there's a good chance you also have mental illness yourself or have family members who suffer from an illness of some kind or another. This, and not contracting HPPD, is what will likely raise your risk of dementia. I really can't emphasize how much this sort of thing can be prevented though. If you eat healthy, exercise and limit stress your chances of getting some form of dementia are extremely low even if you're exposed to it genetically. 
    • Seems there's been an uptick in posts where users wonder whether they have HPPD, which I've always found a bit strange considering I knew I had HPPD the minute I read the symptoms list. If you take drugs and end up with HPPD symptoms then you have HPPD. I think it would be helpful to have an introductory post stating something along these lines, perhaps listing symptoms, what steps to take, what to do, what not to do, etc. I can even make one of these if someone wants to pin it. I just think there needs to be some general outline of what this condition is and what to do about it so people don't come here so lost. Just a thought.

      Does it feel as if you were just looking at life through someone else's eyes ? Not truly feeling your surroundings . Almost as if you were present in body but not actually there? Fuckin sucks.
