    yeah I think its b and c if I had to guess. They've gotten much better for me over time. Although that said, a blue sky or snowy ground always makes them more nitceable.
  2. word, mine are usually white, but they sometimes change to and from green, blue, and pink as well. If it wasn't so shitty, I'd almost say its kinda cool haha.
  3. Just stay off the weed, and it will slowly get better - at least it did for me. For me its not the visual snow, but the closed eye visuals of swirling white patterns when my eyes are shut.
  4. shitty part is that the darkness probably wouldn't be any better

    telling parents

    Agreed on this being a good topic. My parents knew something was up because we suspected I had a sleeping disorder (due to crazy static and closed eye visuals and vivid dreams). I had been fucked for a while, and it was only when I stumbled across this board that I connected the dots. I told my parents over dinner, and although I expected them to be mad, they appreciated the honesty. They didn't believe it was from the drugs, but they were happy I felt I could confide in them. Later, it lead to some interesting discussions about my parents' youth, and on the whole, I feel I got closer to both of them because of it. As far as needing to be taken care of, not really in the literal sense. But given that anxiety and depression run in my family, I felt my mom understood me the most out of anyone (I was 20 at the time fyi). There was definitely a long period where we talked nearly every day. She ended up being the first one who actually believed me when I talked about what I was experiencing, and that meant more to me than anything. Without her, I don't know what would have happened to me, and for that reason alone I think it is worth telling your parents. Just make sure they realize that you are smart person that made a decision that had unfortunate consequences and not some other distorted scenario.

    Beginnings of DP/DR? Help please!

    sounds like anxiety to me. When you start to have an anxiety attack, its sometimes hard to make sense of even the most simple shit. I know for me, caffeine is a big part of anxiety which leads to DP/DR.

    Cannabiloid antagonists

    As far as cannabiloid antagonists, I don't know. I do know that there are two different chemicals in weed that affect you. There's THC which gets you high, and there is CBD, which calms you down. The relative levels of these chemicals determines the type of high you have. THC makes your brain think crazy things (i.e. be high) but can lead to anxiety. CBD fights anxiety but can also lead to couch lock. CBD has been studied for use as an anti depressant and for use in treating people with schizophrenia. I still smoke weed all the time, but it was only after 9 months of not smoking or drinking anything. Weed makes visuals/DP slightly worse, but its not phasing amount, and I cope with it so easily it almost doesn't even matter. If I smoke a lot, however, it does get substantially worse, dying down in a day or two, usually within the day. Yesterday is a good example: people are getting off school, and yesterday I smoked probably 5 or 6 js with others during the evening. Today I feel like total shit, DP really bad. But that said, I know what it is, so I'm no freaking out that badly at all. In fact, if I had felt this way a year ago, I would be having a full on panic attack. Not anymore. You just gotta be careful and keep the necessary perspective. I regret what I did yesterday (seemed fun at the time), but at least I know how to cope with it today.
  11. Hey Jake, it gets better. My hppd is just from shrooms, but my experience was that it comes on, gets worse, and then gets better. Months 3 - 12 were straight hell for me before I started improving. Just hang in there, it might not be immediately, but it will get better slowly. Let me know if you need anyone to talk to or if you have any other questions. you'll be alright dude!

    Nice to see some familiar names back. I was on the old board just for a little bit before it went offline, can't remember if I had the same handle back then. Regardless, yall were some of the folks who helped me get through my initial rough period, and in turn, have helped me pay it forward to other noob sufferers. Let's get this place rolling again!

    Feeling manic need help

    dude, just sit down and breath. Try and take a nap. Go for a walk. This just sounds like an anxiety attack thats worse than normal for you, you know what's up - just ride it out.

    HPP Community

    That's what has helped my anxiety, or at least did in the beginning - knowing that I wasn't crazy, that I was just more tuned into normal visual phenomena that were now amplified
