  1. I know, Covid sucks, it makes living life a lot tougher. That tends to be how I become depersonalized too, one second I'm fine, then yep, "bang". I know it well. I've had HPPD since January 2007.
  2. Well, 1 or 2 cans on weekends probably isn't the culprit, but you never know. Coffee can definitely be a culprit, even one cup. Maybe try decaf? It still has caffeine in it, just not as much. I'm guessing it's your screen time, that's the number one thing that causes me problems. Things I've found that help if you don't want to cut down the time you're spending, is simply take a break every half hour or so for a good 5 minutes then return to it. Also, if you have any blue-light filtering or anything like that on your computer or smart-phone, try turning that on, as well as turning down th
  3. And here I thought it was just U.S. doctors that were useless, looks like it's a worldwide thing. Old joke: you know why they call them General Practitioners? Because they're just practicing. *ba-dum-tshh* Jay1 asked the right questions, I'll expand: any use of alcohol, and herbal supplements, are you staying home more than usual due to Covid (if so, how much time in front of a computer or smart phone screen?), any changes in your relationships? Anything that has changed recently at all, even if it seems very insignificant, is worth thinking about,
  4. I'm just glad to see you came back. This is an HPPD support forum, not an AA forum, so if you don't want to talk about alcohol it's fine. It's your life after-all and HPPD sucks ass to put it mildly, we all have our ways of coping. You're not being judged, and we all get it. If you ever feel the need to vent send me a message. *Edit* To answer the original topic, in terms of limiting post-drinking HPPD symptoms, buy yourself the amino acid NAC and take it about an hour or two BEFORE you drink (don't take it once you've started drinking: it will increase liver damage rather than
  5. Nice post, I'll investigate this myself (looking to taper off of my Clonazepam at some point). You seem to really know your shit, I was wondering what you think of NAC? From my reading on NAC I wonder if it has potential.
  6. Having vivid/lucid dreams is not the same as HPPD. What symptoms are you having during the time you are awake?
  7. I was wondering, for those of you who have dated post-HPPD, have you ended up telling them what you have? If so, how did they react?
  8. Hi and welcome, People with HPPD do not have delusions and do not hear voices so I'm inclined to say yes, you have Schizophrenia, and you should speak to a Psychiatrist. In an instance like this anti-psychotics are not a bad idea, especially since you've been on them before and they worked. Although you say you have no family history of Schizophrenia, unfortunately with psychedelics, contrary to popular belief, you don't need to have a family history of X disorder in order to develop it from them. I feel the people that people that claim that those who end up with mental disorders from ps
  9. You hit the nail on the head, this, a thousand times this. Everything is "fake news". The whole world is going down the drain, and people are becoming dumber each day. I blame social media. I'm starting to hope that the human race does end, and that a more intelligent species evolves after we're gone. Each day I give up further on the human race and just want to be alone.
  10. I'm not surprised, pro-psychedelic cocksuckers not believing it. You know what? Fuck them, right in the ass. Let them continue their psychedelic use until they get it themselves. It's called karma. *Edit* I went a bit overboard, deleted the worst of it
  11. I know I answered you via your PM, but wanted to put the gist of it here for others to read: I've been feeling panicky ever since. I'm just doing everything I can to relax, I've noticed my ability to handle stress isn't as good as it was. I'm hoping my anxiety will subside within a few days. I hope it didn't make my HPPD worse. So far I'm mostly just noticing some anxiety, and when the anxiety is bad some DP/DR symptoms. I really fucking hate Reddit. I wish there was a way to get that subreddit shut down, but the whole site is run by an idiot, and the people who run that subredd
  12. /\ This. Stop with the damn supplements, learn from my mistake.
  13. So I had been taking L-Tyrosine for a while for two reasons: 1) I heard it can be good for depression, and 2) People on r/HPPD had been using it saying it can help with HPPD (yeah I know...and here I am always saying to ignore them). I took a little more than usual early Tuesday morning after no sleep. I ended up getting very disoriented, felt very weak, felt manic, and started having small hallucinations (not the HPPD kind, I mean actual seeing shit that wasn't there). I became so disoriented I dialed 911 and was brought to the E.R. My vitals came back fine, and they gave me st
  14. I have a new question about this. Even with my audio interview I gave, I'm wondering if it may do more harm than good. I'm widely disliked in my community, I live in a small town and people tend to spread things around that aren't entirely true, and as a result I have a bad reputation. I'm thinking for that reason it might be better to pull my account from the documentary, as people might not as readily believe it. Then again, it sounds like this is somewhat anonymous. On the flip-side of that, I feel like I don't really have much left to lose and have considered doing a thoroug
  15. Alright, I have more time now. I think you meant what is it like to get HPPD after tripping many times without issue? I'm sorry if it's a simple question, I've been drinking a little. In reality, I had tripped on a dissociative drug, DXM (cough syrup) around 50 times, and then on various Psychedelics when I got older and gained access to "real" drugs, perhaps another 50 times. The drug that caused my HPPD is a "research chemical" called 4-AcO-DMT, and was first proposed by a Harvard student as a safer alternative to shrooms. Apparently all these years later, 4-AcO-DMT has gained popu
