  1. NODID.org is now back in my hands. It means very little in the big picture, but a small celebration. I registered NODID.ORG when we formed the National Organization for Drug-induced Disorders, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity. I lost the domain name, which suddenly jumped to $600 and was owned by various other groups. NODID, the organization is no longer active, but I have accounts that use dkozin@nodid.org as an e-mail back-up that should allow me to enter places to enter other sites. Admins: E-mail david.s.kozin@gmail.com with any financial issues and current SITREP. I contacted some of the larger sites to fix their links, which explains some drain on the the site, and I may have a donor that will pay for hosting. I am having a significant family issue that may result in a slow response, but much more quickly than never. If you are interested in learning about the history of the hppdonline.com web site, you can go to wayback machine and look at nodid.org and hppdonline.com and see what I was working on at different stages and can get some interesting information. Here are images from the history of HPPDonline and one from NODID. The oldest record in 1991. - David
  2. I remember feeling so protective about the HPPD community (I was married to one) that if someone pointed out ignorant comments referring to us as malingers and faking the symptoms for different reasons. My favorite were provided on a few occasions when people claimed that Dr. Abraham and DEA created HPPD as a lie and eventually I knew I was doing something right too when I was named as a co-conspirator. Usually, it was a pretty rational person selectively processing facts and emotions and they are very hard to discredit because they feel they would be aware of this disorder if it existed. I argued with a professor from Germany who read almost all of the material on LSD that one would ever need to, and for years on the Internet in email, he would only give me credit for being so open to alternative explanations. I later met the researcher who still would not believe me 100%, but he said that my willingness to identify alternatives but state something you can't deny: "Well, we have web stats that prove at least there is a trend worth considering." He later published a case report of an individual getting HPPD after mushrooms or MDMA. I used to spar against a pro-drug advocate long ago on his website after a rather in-your-face member of HPPDonline.com would return back telling me all of the lies this person is saying and what he is calling us. So, I would write in his territory (mid/early 2000's maybe?) on his site. and I used the same honest answers and stated that I do not have an answer to many of the common questions about the definitions of a disorder, but he disliked that I could attack his logical fallacies in not considering HPPD to be possible, This was occurring on his web site's personal forum. A year or so later, a lot of things changed in the HPPD landscape (I was designing my first research experiment with Dr. Simeon) and I was drawn into another chance to go spar with his anti-HPPD crap because his followers were getting bad information. He did piss me off because, well to be honest, we were both punks with a sense of self-righteousness for our stance, but I think I had a better one. However, I just agreed with him that his points could be valid in his perceptual reality, and I understood he would feel these things and was happy that he did not have to know HPPD. Then slander, but I ignored it. However, interesting that it was almost 15 years ago and I am writing about it and can remember it. I can tell you that the most HPPD friendly researcher in this community didn't know HPPD existed and was shocked to see how much literature existed, then people in the comment section will not either. I realized it was a waste of my time and I should focus on the bigger issues. In the end, I can find references to this user only on user reports from 2000-2007 on Erowid.org and his personal site is defunct. The Erowids are very supportive. This young guy annoyed me, and when I let it go I made friends with the people on that side who were open to or completely accepted HPPD as reality. I am removing excess to start over to deal with the things that do matter. That guy must have moved on or in prison or maybe here, but I know that his followers were going to do whatever they were going to do, and the other member talking about their HPPD was just as effective as me. t didn't matter what they said because I remember telling my friend during the a 7th hour of an LSD trip, "Wouldn't it be awesome if you just saw the world like this, but were not tripping?" It was only a month or so until my HPPD started. The Universe wasn't going to be subtle. I include on my Google + page the response to what my bragging rights could be for: Dr. James Faddiman asked me (unsolicited) to be his LinkedIn pal and when I asked him why me? He said, "I am a serious admirer of your work." If a pro-psychadelic member of a site heard that was true, then if the are educated psychonauts they would hear the mic just drop. Thanks for letting me steal your thread. - dk (I don't edit my posts before clicking send because I have a million things going on in my head, and I am usually hitting "send" because I get a reminder how late it is. ) Ut us 3:23 AM, and I have stuff to sell online and get real sleep. But, I spent a few hours looking at the analytics from this site over the last few years (I do have it, the comprehensive ones), and my mind was racing. I'll try to focus writing earlier, so I can check it over to create sentences and stucture that form a cohesive unit linked to the sentences around it. )
  3. What we've got here is a failure to communicate. 

  4. The history of browsing and reading while writing. I could re-write this to make so much more sense, but I think people will be able to work through it.
  5. I wrote this a stream of thoughts. It will be disorganized, but it would never happen if I didn't do it this way. At least, it would not happen now. It is important I get it out, and that you realize the sentences may be inverted or a section missed and picked up. I did not go back to edit it, and you will understand why. I am David Kozin, and I want to let something go so I can succeed. If I do not work on this every day, I will never reach my potential and remain in hiding. Writing this may or may not be a good idea, but so far not saying anything causes me hours of stress each day that incapicitates me so much that I won't turn on a computer or leave the house because the anxiety is so high. I am sure what I am going to say is not a surprise to some of you. However, I feel it is very important to mention and to discuss it publicly because I have reached the point where I am dedicating as much energy to managing my symptoms as I once did to HPPD. I have ADHD. Unfortunately, it is sad that I must validate myself more than this, but the overdiagnosis of ADHD and lack of understanding of the disorder warrants it. Additionally, if you only see my history as bullet points in terms of my few but notable accomplishment you will think I am joking. If you have been with me since 1998 on this or one of the previous versions of the message board, it will make sense and purhaps you knew I had it before I did. Let me start the validation. Without hesitation, I can say that ADHD has been the most debilitating disorder in my life. Attention disorders are associated with HPPD, but my ADHD began as early as I can remember. I always knew something was wrong, but until extensive testing, the results of my qEEG re-examined and an honest look at my life with family and friends did I know exactly what it was. I am deciding to talk about it because I have added an additional handicap to my success and with being fair to this community and my self but not talking about it and letting the problems associated with it pile up until I had to face it seriously or I would probably be in a much worse place right now. In 1998, Dr. Abraham sent me to Dr. Frank Duffy for a Quantitative EEG (qEEG). The finding on my study was very unusual, but we didn't look at it as diagnosing any other disorder other than HPPD and to rule out other disorders that can cause visual symptoms. WHAT IT SHOWS from my report: "Sprectral data are surprisingly abnormal with consistently excessive fronto-central theta. In comparison to an age appropriate normal database theta is increased by 3.49 SD broadly in the frontal and central regions without asymmetry. n comparison to an age appropriate normal database, Theta is increased by 2.56 SD bilaterally in the fronto-central region with no asymmetry. The front theta raises the possibility of a mild encephalopathic process as well." WHY THESE ARE VERY ABNORMAL RESULTS: THETA IN FRONT CENTRAL AREA IN EXCESS WOULD HAVE PREDICTED WITH 95% CONFIDENCE ADHD DIAGNOSIS "After a very consistent and growing body of evidence, The FDA approved qEEG for testing ADHD along with clinical evaluations. It is the best marker that I can use to "prove" ADHD just like we use it to prove our HPPD. " "Current research findings suggest that most children with ADHD display fairly consistent EEG differences in brain electrical activity as compared to normal children, particularly with respect to their increased frontocentral theta (4-7 Hz) activity during primarily resting state conditions. " "A recent meta-analysis of 9 studies with a collective sample of 1,498 subjects found an effect size (ES) of 1.31 (95 % confidence interval [CI], 1.14-1.48) and an average excess of 32 % in theta band power for children with ADHD relative to controls" ALSO: I was sent for a 6-hour neurocognitive evaluation at University of Michigan. The results demonstrated expected measures in areas except attention. I scored in the 5th grade level for writing an essay with handwriting. Measures of attention scored in the severely imparied range and in the 4% for ADHD. The first book I completed (Read from start to finish in any manner of time) was in 2009 after starting medication and work with a learning specialist and counselor. My symptoms have created extreme levels of chaos in my life, and I consistently underperformed in academics except in the intense cases of hyperfocus on areas. I was the highest scoring student in math in an 8th grade evaluation, but never received a grade higher than C despite my love of math. The process of working "through" problems sets quite literally makes me so anxious that if asked would I rather work through a 100 question basic multiplication paper and do the problems in order (example: 3 x 32 =) for a Class Grade or just receive a C+ and not do the test... I would feel less anxious about an automatic C+ than going through the process of working 100 problems, despite my ability to do them. I almost did not graduate high school because I received a D- in American History (the most basic course that ALL students pass based on an elementary knowledge of the topic [e.g. What are the three branches of government?]. I also received a D- grade in mandatory Home Economics. The balancing of a check-book, budgeting and how interest is calculated. Yet, I was voted the National Honor Society President of my class. I had the raw skills and ability to hyperfocus on a new and exciting topic for a day that to save myself from failing a Math course in 1991 I took one day too learn the C language with a computer to write a program to use logic for diagnosis infectious diseases based on Y or N questions from a book. A full 20 pages of single spaced code. After that, my interest in programming was challenged because for some reason (I just can't explain it) I was UNABLE to move forward with learning programming and reading books on the topic. I wrote the software for the Depersonalization research in 2 days on self-medicated (without doctor approval) Adderral learning PHP and writing an extensive database application to pass approval of Mount Sinai School of Medicine's IRB. It worked. I have over 10,000 unread e-mails, mostly information e-mails, but the level of panic when I try to address this is overwhelming despite knowing that not reading the e-mails would be worse. I have over-drawn checking accounts for about a total of $30 x 100 = $3000 dollars in charges and five closed bank accounts. What is most important, is that just as much as people are unable to comprehend seeing what we do or how a person so underweight that they risk heart failure yet consider themselves fat or why a person with OCD must go through a routine with no basis in reality or logic and despite them knowing this to be true... they still have to do it or the anxiety and feeling inside is so distressing that it impairs life. Nobody wants to operate like this. I didn't want to fail out of two colleges. I didn't want to not answer e-mails. I didn't want to pay $3,000 for maybe 500 dollars of items. I never wanted to miss doctor appointments, meetings with anyone, classes including when the Final Exam would be. ADHD was not understood or on the minds of teachers during my educational development. I was called lazy, self-endulgent and my parents would punish me and judge me for not completing a basic chore or remembering a time. Never, did I get in trouble or disciplined for an action where I flagrantly attempted to make another person's life more difficult or harm or do harm to anyone. I was the gold star behavior student, but I would have teacher's in tears yelling at me for not completing assignments that they knew "I could do." Well, at the same time my self-esteem was destroyed at its heart. It has been for so long. Having started this message board and knowing it has helped so many is the only comfort I have when I start to think that my life has been pointless. I have been without health insurance for three years and living a chaotic life during them. I ended up in Iceland in a tent for 3 months, which was an amazing experience but everything I intended to do never materialized. I have yet to finish even a computer game to completion, but like Flight Simulators or a game with a 10-minute goal to win or lose. I master skills to create something, but implementing them is where I struggle every day. Every day, I punish myself further and finally had to be very forward with people about my condition and my attempts to work on them behaviorally in an intensive way and also with medication. I recently decided to reduce my klonopin dose, which cascaded into a disaster of monthly withdrawls, days where I would fear opening my computer because hearing the sounds of the emails that are there would bring me to a full panic. I have 30 phone calls I have not answered, but would love to, but fear that my delay in actions or missed appointments would be on the other end. Yet, I can't go foward with what I know I can do, what I have already done that to a normal person would be completed in a few days. I have a research study for Characterizing all of the vision disorders that was approved by Harvard's IRB, and not executed for different reasons, and it would help so many to be used but putting it in a program desite the benefits even I would selfishly get still make it a challenge. It took me 7 months, two of those months consisted mostly of anxiety over writing my HPPD story for a major British Journal. My girlfriend at the time was very understanding, but I could see how it upset her to see me struggle over something that I literally completed in less than 30 minutes when I was asked to do it against after I passed my deadline and removed myself from a short description of my HPPD. So much wasted time worrying and the anxiety over such small tasks that I can do, but just need to work with professionals and friends and family, but most importantly myself to find ways to work and live up to my potential. I have done it once, when I began medication and had a four person professional support group at college that let me read my first book and worked around my challenges, learnined cognitve ways to get past issues and have students actually say they wish they had my work ethic, which is a statement that brought me to tears when I first heard it. So, I have 10k emails. I am going to have someone assist me on deleting the mass of it (anything from companies/etc) and to reduce it down to about 5 emails that are really important. I am going to ask for help to put the survey together with Limesurvey for us to get it ready. I have put together so many articles on volunteer management, the laws both domestic and internation, to the point of nausea including having the system to let people volunteer even if as simple as saying, "Hey You, could you take my 130 article database of HPPD papers already in a word document and look for new ones on medline and post them?" I now have Medicaid because of an extension and because of "Obamacare" it comes with a health plan like everyone else and it begin the first of next month. Specialists in ADHD advised I would qualify for Social Security Disability, but I know when I had the write treatments and if I can just delete this garbage without fear and simplify life that I can excel for sustained times with medication and a lot of effort on the skills and letting others help me. I am going to send this out, and ask nothing from anyone but help explain my biggest challenge and that an unanswered email was not because I did not care and in order to move forward I will need to set aside the massive amount of data and thousands of files in folders lost to me and reduce to the basic goal right now of a executing all of the things I have learned and prepared for to let others join in making the Society of Perception Disorders a reality and not fear help and let others decide how they will judge or perceive me. Thanks for reading this far, I could not have done it. I started writing this at 11:30 and now I am sending it. I am returning to my normal klonopin dose, because this increased anxiety is unmanagable and a horrible decision that I made to do at this point (reduce from 3mg to 2mg) which I have tried off and on and i have been taking 3-4mg of Klonpin daily since 1998. This is not the time to stop. I will be in a few day radio silence, but will contact key individuals that I have promised to be in touch with and move forward.

  6. In Battle Supremacy, I am a member of SCAW and former CO of 37th Tank Brigade therefore: [sCAW][37th]THUNDERBOLT I use this game, the clan group and love the respect of being in the best of the best squads... it is a nice escape. What system to you play on?
  7. I am writing the Articles of Incorporation now... the Society for the Study of Perception Disorders covers everything up to the Autism Spectrum Disorder area of these disorders. It is also in line with the DP/DR s group I am a member of the International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation. Jimmyb84, contact me at david@perceptiondisorders.com. That is also another reason it is good: I own perceptiondisorders.com and .org which allow for the main web site and a second site to forward or with subdomains operate other functions.

  11. Sytheso, I created an account with your e-mail address and no password, but also no ability to do anything accept edit your own imaginary information and visit the unfinished sites. Visit the site and find the password link and I'll help you through of you need it. Thanks!
  12. I am waiting for additional funding for a virtual phone exchange for international numbers and to pay for phone calls in and out. Thank you for bringing it up, however!
  13. A public and non-public directory to host videos and pdf files would be great. I see that I am going to work with the DP/DR community with this and we will have movies and other stories to create personal connections with the audience. I am creating a clearer document on the project and will post it by the end of the day. I think that will help others who may be on the side of the story and waiting because I haven't put up anything yet. I will put up some content, and any other individual looking to start writing a blog or has art or their you tube video channel that they want me to use their videos for should let me know with an email to david@perceptiondisorders.com - David
  14. Ok, the Society for Study of Perception Disorders. I own perceptiondisorders.com, so I switched the domain. That is not common for a society to use a more memorable name or better search value as their domain. Now, as I said this was a group effort. Let it be one. A few of us took NODID to eventually create original research and publish in journals. NODID is gone, but it was a practice run. Where do we want to incorporate. We will need one person to be the Registered Agent and their address will be public, and they will hold copies of all documents that should be available for inspection and must be a legal resident of the state. I think we should have a full group of Incorporators, which will form the first group as Directors. Directors do not have any age or residency requirements in some places and not in others. The first group of Incorporators will make the initial final decisions on drafting the Articles of Incorporation and the first Bylaws along with the initial committees that would have power to operate this company. Initial Incorporators will have to sign the document, which will be moved through the mail as fast as possible and you will be known as a founder of the company. Most will become Directors, if they choose, for the first term of the non-profit. We should have five Incorporators. Perhaps eight Directors of the Board. Is this a good number? What do we think should qualify a person as incorporating for all of us? I think the Incorporators should bring a minimum of funds, so I take myself out of that picture. I would not like to be the CEO, CFO or COO or even on the Board of Directors. I would want to be the chief staff member, the Executive Director, which is a staff position working for the Board and at their will. It is also the only paid position. My purpose is to suggest to this group we have a situation we can solve. The message board is full of talent and finances but everyone is waiting for someone else to do something, and I want to be known for proving the theory people with these disorders are willing to make a small sacrifice to for a large return on their money. All it would take is to generate interest to get 5,000 people to donate $5 dollars a month and we have a $300,000 a year budget. This should not be hard. Or, is it impossible? How about 2,000 people? Even if we are an orphan disease, that is less than 200,000 individuals with the disorder, we should expect that $5/month should not be a problem to really change our future. Or, maybe out of all of the people we could not collectively get 5,000 people together to commit a $60 dollar check for a year. Even if you find someone else to write it for you. How much did the drug cost that you took that gave you HPPD? What was your drug budget? $5/month? You should at least be able to give the same amount of money you spent on drugs to be able to fund awareness and generate research that can help all of us. If it does not seem possible, I need to do something else because I am 36 and have nothing to my name but 200,000+ in debt with medical and past school. I will work my ass off to do it, but will other people be willing to put it forward to make this possible and make history as far as an organized patient group that would serve as a model for others and stand almost as revolutionary in the design and control from a perspective of patients being fed up and taking this into their own hands. I think it is unprecedented, and candidates for representative can raise millions from people willing to donate to a politician up to $300 dollars a person knowing it will be wasted. Can we do better? David
