    Living with HPPD

    Welcome, have things improved since that first year?

    16 HPPD from LSD i need advice

    This is quite funny really: "Can i still smoke weed?" "well, staying totally sober is the best bet" "What about spice?" "well, staying totally sober is the best bet, no more drugs of any kind" "Just some coke then?"
  3. How about clonazepam or one of the other benzos? They are the only meds that have any impact on my tripiness.
  4. I feel ya, i'm 23 years in now. I describe it as being stuck in those last few hours of a trip, where you are starting to feel a bit more normal, but still not quite there. Have you tired any meds?
  5. Yep, this is known as dp/dr (depersonalisation and derealisation). It often goes hand in hand with hppd visual symptoms. It's my most hated symptom. The feeling of being on a boat is also connected to this, imho. We do not feel 100% connected to our body and it puts us off balance. Even the smallest head movement can make me feel disconnected. I've always maintained that what people often refer to as hppd is actually 3-4 issues in one. Hppd visuals, anxiety, dp/dr and sometimes depression. Clonazepam is the only thing that helps me reduce these symptoms.

    My advice is to go completely sober of everything that can affect hppd (negatively or positively) so that you get to know and understand your baseline. If you just jump straight into meds that will hide your symptoms, you might then start doing things that are making you worse without really noticing it. Give it 2-3 months and see what happens with your baseline. You might start naturally recovering... If you don't, then look into meds. If the hppd gets really bad during that time though, then yes, benzos can really help.

    If you want the best chance to heal, you need to stay totally sober... No spice, no weed, no anything.

    Weed is going to make things worse, no doubt.

    Just try to relax and see how you heal over the next few months... Don't do any more drugs, try to eat well and exercise and just do things that take you mind off hppd (films, tv, books, sports... whatever works)

    Unique Symptoms

    i get outlines.. but green and blue vision shaking, not sure... more like flashing/flickering, but it does seem like micro judders in my visions too. Last two, i don't get. Smoking weed is not gonna help though
  11. I've met other people with some signs of hppd, but only ever quite mild visual snow. Not the geometric visual storm that we seem to be blessed with! I know exactly what you mean by vortexs... I've described them as digital tornados before, especially noticeable along the top of a tv or screen.

    Fasting to Cure HPPD

    Interested to hear how you get on. Good luck
  13. Yea, that swimming feeling is very much something I get too. I've always associated it with dpdr, but it could be something physical, or both.
  14. I get a feeling of being off balance, which I think is part of the dp/dr... I don;t feel attached to my body, so controlling my body is harder to do. I assume you are seeing a doctor, so maybe they can do some tests. It could be non hppd related and just coincidence?
  15. No one can say for sure if it will go away. I've had it for 23 years now. What is 100% sure is that doing more drugs will 1) Slow down any chance of recovery and 2) Bring the potential to make things MUCH worse. This is your body giving you a massive alarm bell.
