  1. yea... if you need to focus to see it, it is not hppd, maybe some kind of warning sign... floaters are nothing to do with hppd... You just think you have more because you are focusing on your vision. Even VS might be natural (white blood cells) but you are focusing to find problems and the human visual system of not perfect. Focus on solving the anxiety... just avoid stress, do things that make you relaxed and happy.
  2. You might have a form of mild hppd or pre-hppd (if you only really see issues when you force yourself to find them, i would call that pre-hppd)... I personally believe that you probably can get hppd from strong weed but that it is far, far more likely you will recover. Stay calm, try to get out and fill your life with fun and interesting things to do,,, you will stop focusing on these issuess more and more
  3. If you can avoid drugs, alcohol and stress for the next few months... I think you will start to see improvements.
  4. As i've discussed several times before, I use a 4 days on, 3 days off benzo treatment with 10 days off every 2-3 months to further clean the system. It has worked for 7 years now, without any sign of tolerance or withdrawal. I tweak "the recipe" a fair bit, this is my current system: Lorazepam (2.5mg) - Thursday 6pm Clonazepam (1mg) - Friday 9am Clonazepam (1mg) - Saturday 9am Lorazepam (2.5mg) - Sunday 9am
  5. mgrade, 1mg of klono is easily enough to get withdrawals.
  6. I agree, very odd behaviour... not sure if it is some misplaced joke... but mgrade, cut it out, the guy is clearly in the same boat as the rest of us.
  7. I remember a few people here who tried ibogaine when they had hppd and totally fucked up their lives. I would be very, very cautious. All of these psychedelics work on similar receptors, so have the potential to make things much worse. Out of interest, what kind of dose of LSD/Shrooms were you doing... microdoses, or enough to start to feel the effects?
  8. Interesting read. I'm still fascinated by LSD!
  9. YOU DON'T HAVE HPPD hppd is persistent and you don;t have to look for it. It's that simple. The little flecks you see when you look at the sky are white blood cells, my wife can see them if she focuses hard enough and she has never taken any drugs or SSRIs. Like her, you do not have hppd! The bottom line is that no one here can tell you that weed will be safe, no one here can tell you that alcohol will be safe. You have to make a decision on what risks you want to take... Weed carries more risks (and worsening your anxiety is FAR more likely than getting hppd)... Large amounts of alcohol carries some risk.... A few beers on a saturday night carries very little risk.... BUT, no one in the world can say it carries zero risk. Seriously though, you don't have hppd, not even mild hppd. You have an anxiety disorder, that's what you should focus on fixing.
  10. No one in the world can answer those questions regarding "no risk"... Very little is known about hppd, lsd etc... So asking definitive questions about the future is impossible. All I can say is that from anecdotal evidence from other users here (100s of other users) there is very little risk you will develop hppd after 8 days without symptoms. Unless you take more drugs so, of course there is risk if you smoke weed.
  11. You don't have hppd. hppd is continuous and you don't have to look for it... It is noticeable, even when mild.You came through unharmed... Just try to learn from this... You clearly have some issues with anxiety and overthinking that are probably not drug related... So I would totally avoid drugs, from now on... 100%, not even weed.... Just go and enjoy life
  12. I would try and deal with the depression, worry about the VS later... There are alot of meds out there that are unlikely to affect your VS. Maybe something like buspar? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buspirone
  13. Klonopin can cause further depression too, so be careful. I take it on a 4 days on, 3 days off basis (with 10 days off every 2-3 months)... This works out for me and i'm addiction/tolerance free after 8 years of this. For me, it is a life saver... Reduces my visuals, but more importantly, reduces my anxiety and dp/dr. But as TheMythos says, benzo addiction and withdrawal is awful, my cousin was put on valium after coming off heroin and he said it was much harder to kick and the withdrawals FAR worse! so be careful if you do start this med. You need to be very strong willed to keep up the system above.
  14. For most people, it is directly after... I have heard of people getting it some time after if they go out heavy drinking or something.
  15. If you keep searching for issues.... You will start to see the little natural oddities in your visual field that are perfectly normal. Stop freaking out... You don't have hppd... Rejoice... Enjoy life... Forget drugs
