  1. Very good post. We need to pull in the same direction and help each other. Polite counter points are fine, but why does it have to quickly resort to swearing and anger?
  2. Guys, let's calm it down a bit... @TheMythos let's see less swearing and personal attacks. I haven't had a chance to keep up with this article, but it is clearly marked as "a bit of an idea"... It's not claiming to be a science paper. Let's all try and pull in the right direction. If something doesn't ring true, politely put across your counter point or just leave it alone, unless you think it is damaging to the people who might try it.
  3. Did you shoot your load into your eye?
  4. I've never had any guilt over it.... I took a shit load of drugs and got unlucky. Nothing more, nothing less.
  5. How are you taking it, injections? I read that it is localised, eg, if you have a bad back, you inject into the back... Where would you inject for hppd?
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Mine came back all clear, this was around 20 years ago though... Will chat to my doctor about doing another
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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,
