  1. i've had these all my life, don't think it's hppd related. Coughing, standing up too quickly etc puts that pressure on the eye
  2. I think i've censored one post in my 10+ years as admin (the one about drinking fucking bleach). As for you first sentence... the forum helped me immensely and I get PMs a lot saying that the forum has been a great help. Maybe take your negativity to reddit? edit - haha, I just realised you are the plum trying to pimp said bleach.
  3. Maybe it's a good thing to let /hppd have all the "hey, i've had hppd for 26.5 hours now and was thinking about combining LSD and crack while shoving salvia up my ass, will this make me better or worse" posters 😅
  4. I think it's quiet here because of /hppd and other social ways of grouping (there are loads of HPPD discord groups, for example). There is a downward trend among many dedicated forums, not just here.
  5. Definitely the right mindset... and it's worth noting that is it not "for life" for most people.... Loads of people make a full recovery, especially if they have mild symptoms and go sober straight away. As you have only been on the SSRIs two weeks and they have possibly given some bad effects, i'm actually gonna go against what I said above and recommend you get off them now (phone your doctor about this). This is not the stage of your recovery to be pumping meds into your body, imho. Especially SSRIs. If you can just go fully clean for a month or two, you will know what is happening with your hppd... Then tackle the depression (where there are many avenues to explore). This is just my advice though, i'm no doctor.
  6. SSRIs do affect me a lot, but I have seen reports of others that get on fine with them. Do you think the med is helping your depression? How is your anxiety? I would chat to a doctor really, i'd hate to give you advice to stop the med, which then makes your depression worse... but maybe you can chat to the doctor about finding a non SSRI med?
  7. haha.. it was a good attempt at a post 😅
  8. Did you fully read and take in the article... It doesn't link hppd with psychosis (that I remember). It just highlights that psychosis can be a co-morbid disorder amongst HPPD sufferers, just as depression and anxiety can be... This is fact based. Keppra and lamictal did nothing for me. Because similar meds are used to attempt to treat two different issues is not a proven link that they are the same issue, neurologically. I've read a lot on VSS and, without wanting to gatekeep, i've never heard a VSS sufferer with even 1/5th the visual symptoms that I have, and none have ever described the trippy feeling that is yet another sideshoot of dpdr, ... I think they are similar, but i think HPPD will likely have some big differences too.
  9. Yea, i'm not sure what you are getting at, Oliver. The article is a deep look into hppd and the potential issues with the explosion of excitement for LSD/MDMA treatment. The term "stuck in a trip" may not work for you, but you need to think how it works for the average reader. A descriptive phrase is better than a bunch of scientific words that they will just skip over. I've always said that hppd is a collection of disorders that feed off each other, but I think that is addressed in the article. And yes, a cure for VSS could have great benefits for us, and vice versa... But it is still just a hypothesis right now. Drug induced depression, for instance, can (from my own experience and anecdotal evidence) be much harder to treat than depression brought on by grief, even though the symptoms are very similar.
  10. Stop stating opinion as fact... I very much consider myself trapped in a trip that doesn't end, it just about the perfect description for what I am going through. And why would he need to mention VSS on a topic that is clearly about the potential side effects of drug use?
  11. It's been hppdonline for at least 12 years now, maybe 15... A lot of the data was lost about 7 years ago, sadly. It was a bit like one of those fidget spinner things... Probably someone with a similar username.
  12. Welcome to the forum Ben, glad to hear you got off the smack, vicious drug. I'm also from UK and just about to enter 25 years with this condition, not great! If you need any help or advice, just let me know. Cheers, Jay
  13. Hey, did you used to have an avatar of some kind of 3D graphic?
  14. I've heard of HPPD from SSRIs and it makes some sense as they also increase serotonin. Speed, coke etc... chemically seems less likely. My guess is that people who have taken such drugs have almost certainly taken weed, lsd and/or mdma, so maybe pointing the finger at the wrong drug. As for benzos... I think there is a chance that the withdrawal anxiety and stress could give an increase in symptoms... But, as far as I know, there is no concrete link. /hppd is a bit of a cesspit to me, 70% of people trying to find a way to cheat the system and take more drugs... a bunch of people with very mild symptoms (or even trolls) being cheerleaders for more drug taking and a handful of people who actually know what they are talking about.
  15. It is a case by case thing and that is the big problem. You might smoke once and send your hppd to the next level.
