  1. Possibly, give it at least a week to see if it goes away naturally. Don't panic about it. Obviously stay away from any drugs
  2. Visuals are the same DP/DR is the same Anxiety is a little better Depression is all but gone (thank god) My coping mechanisms are well honed now... I can't say I ever have good days, but I do have ways to minimise really bad days.
  3. Mine came back all clear, this was around 20 years ago though... Will chat to my doctor about doing another
  4. We need to define the difference between brain damage and neurological damage. Brain damage is caused by an external force, for example a blow to the head, or an internal force like a stroke or tumour. Neurological damage can be caused by issues with receptors, chemicals, electrical signals etc Current hppd evidence (the little we have) seems to support the latter far more than the former, this is further compounded by the fact that we know drugs like lsd and mdma flood the brain with chemicals that overload certain receptors.
  5. Just try and calmly talk it through when you are both sober. See if he has any visual issues and if the trippy feeling is still with him. Just let him know you are there for him and not judging or angry.
  6. As there is currently no success stories section, I will pin this and all success stories can go here.
  7. btw - when I say that I don't think hppd is psychological, I am just refering to the visual disorder. I think anxiety and dp\dr are, at least in part, psychological.
  8. I think you're right.... I'm more and more starting to think that anxiety is a very natural side effect to the fucked up world we live in.
  9. They are two separate issues It's like saying that liver failure is a psychological problem because someone was psychologically addicted to alcohol. Other than the usual high school angst, I can say for sure that I didn't have deep seated psychological issues... I just fucking loved getting high
  10. I just have to.... I take clonazepam 3-4 times a week, which gives me some respite... But generally I just force myself to carry on and try to make a life for myself. Some days, I don't cope, in the slightest... some days, I can do ok and act my way through the day,
  11. Anxiety and the feeling of tripping. The visuals, I could live with easily.
  12. I have been on the forum for about 10 years now and it seems the answer is a clear YES.... not only can it come back, but it can come back much worse. Say no to drugs, y'all.... Avoid stress as much as possible, double check with the forum, facebook etc about any new meds you get prescribed.
  13. Hi... I'm not a subscriber to the idea that it is psychological, as I never had a bad trip, hppd also shows on a qEEG scan, which would suggest neurological issues... though I don't think it will hurt in any way to talk it out with your psychologist... Just back it up with a visit to a neurologist too. Make sure to stop the weed and lsd trips... No more drugs. Keep on fighting man, if you have seen slight improvements, that is already a good sign.
  14. Stress plays a part, no doubt. Try to remove as much stress as possible.
  15. There is not much that I know of, these are two links I had stored: http://amrglobal.powweb.com/category/hppd https://www.theravive.com/therapedia/hallucinogen-persisting-perception-disorder-dsm--5-292.89-(f16.983)
  16. Don;t let doctors dictate your condition... If you think you have hppd, keep changing doctors until you find one that believe you and is willing to learn about it. Doctors will often say you are psycotic or depressed, it is easier for them to understand and "treat" (even if it makes you worse)
  17. my symptoms stay the same... visuals, dpdr etc... but I do get days where I feel in a good mood or bad mood, with less or more anxiety. (sunny days seem to make me feel better)
  18. Does she know you are going through this? Just let her know that if you are ever distant and unresponsive, it is not due to her, it's just an unfortunate part of the condition ... Generally though, just carry on with normal life as much as possible, you do learn to cope, even with dpdr
  19. Impossible to say, i'm afraid. My personal view is stress is probably responsible for belated symptoms, which will tie in with anxiety too.
  20. Yes, if you are getting VS after drug use, that is very likely to be a form of hppd. Usual advice applies... stay away from all drugs (inc weed)... avoid caffeine and alcohol, where possible, minimise stress, eat healthy, do some excerise, do things that will take your mind of the symptoms. All the best, Jay
  21. The only one I have heard to show hppd is a qEEG, which is a more targetted EEG. EEG itself showed nothing for me.
  22. Hey Spartan, long time! Shame you are not healed, but glad to hear you have kept on fighting and getting shit done... It's the only way!
  23. One of our members, Merkan, did kratom and made his hppd 10x worse. I tried it once and it made me sick... no high or relaxation. Not worth the risk.
  24. "even Jay" I've never banned anyone, never moderated anyone (the fact this post still exists should be testament to that) and, more to the point, I'm in no way against LSD/Shrooms... We just got unlucky, but I still think they are beautiful molecules that have great lessons to teach.... they just have a big risk factor that shouldn't be ignored. If anyone else wants to take over running this site (and paying for it)... step forward, It's no easy work, especially the PMs when someone is about to take their life. I have no fixation to be some kind of leader of the people, i'm probably one of the most flawed people here .
  25. Klonopin works for my visuals... Unfortunately, Keppra and Lamictal did nothing. Worth a try though. Klonopin works in a very different way to the other two, as it binds to the gabaA receptor.
