  1. This is something you're gonna need to experiment with your doctor. If he doesn't know about your hppd, you might want to tell him. Ask about different medications and tell him how you feel on different ones. It's a trial and error, but you'll find the medication that will make your symptoms baseline and help with your bipolar. Time and patience man. Originally
  2. Sounds like you're in a web of drugs man, that dxm is what more than likely really made your symptoms worse imo. Only thing you can really do is getting sober and developing better life habits, exercising and eating better. Good luck bro Originally
  3. Very cool read! Harvard really be coming through
  4. Hey everyone! How has everyone been? How’s quarantine been? It’s been awhile since I’ve logged in, roughly 10 months or so. It’s nice seeing Jay1, Maddoc and so many others who helped me a few years ago still being active. As corny as it may seem I really think you guys saved my life in 2016, made me realize that life wasn’t over. I’m now a freshman in college, finishing my second semester in a month! Passed all my classes (except math, fuck math) but I’m doing well. My visuals are still about 80-90% recovered from what they used to be, but that last 10-20% still gets in my way sometimes. I’m 19 now as well, felt like just yesterday I was a shithead 16 year old doing dumbshit with my friends. Been doing a lot better life wise recently, lost 20 pounds recently as well! I’m gonna be more active now, gonna try to be what jay was to me to others. Thank you for reading this far if you have, be kind to yourself and have a nice day! Originally
  5. Let me give you some advice from someone who has recovered probably 80-90%. Time makes your visuals SO much better. I’ve been sober for 2 years straight, I somewhat recently have tried smoking weed here and there, I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to. Be kind to yourself and your brain, give yourself some time to heal. I can literally promise you that you will get better with time.
  6. Should I be worried? A migraine aura can mean worse things medically correct?
  7. Hey all, it’s been awhile since I’ve been on the forum. How is everyone doing? Hope everyone is in a better place from when I was active. I’m back again because 2 days ago I got a tension headache, dull pain for hours. During that time I got what felt like migraine static, but not migraine static. It was like a circle of inverse colors of what I was looking at all around my peripheral and in the middle of my vision. Anyone has any experience with new symptoms arising during headaches? I started to get really anxious, almost crying at a certain point because what was happening felt unfair. It went away after I took a nap, still kinda shook about it. Thank you all for reading, gonna be more active again. Love you guys -Andrew
  8. Hey All! It's almost been two years now with HPPD, coming up on June 2nd. Man, it's been a hell of a fucking ride. I don't know where to start, I've grown so much since getting it when I was 16, I'm 18 now. I'm graduating from high school in 15 days. This site has been in my life less-so in the past year, but you guys really gave me the guidance I so needed as a confused 16-year-old. I just wanted to come on and say thank you for all the guidance and love. Just wanted to say my symptoms really have almost gone away, like 90% gone! It's just the fucking depersonalization and sadness I feel that stay with me regardless of the change I've gone through. Even though I feel this way, life is only going to get better from here! To another year! Andrew A.K.A Originally Lizard_1.mp4
  9. Hey all! It's been a while since I've been on HPPDOnline, how's everyone doing? Going on a year and a half now with having HPPD, everything has gotten better visual symptoms wise. I see less of all my symptoms! Only thing now that has been of a recent development is a constant depersonalization and general sadness. I attribute most of it to the fact of me going to college soon and there's been an abundance of stress on my shoulders. I get small pains here and there in my neck and my lower back, it's been pretty rough since Junior year last year. I haven't touched any drugs or drank since I got HPPD, so there's at least one thing I am not fucking up. I got accepted into a college recently, saying they would give me 16k a year to attend, so I am happy about that. My general support group among friends is good, I can rely on people and they can rely on me. Sorry for typing this out like a diary, but it was nice to type this all out. I've been producing my own beats lately, and that's been a lot of fun. An outlet to let out creativity is always a good time. Sorry for the rambling and if you're reading this, thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this! Till next time, Andrew G
  10. Hey all! It's been nearly a year since I got hppd, and man was this year hard. Constantly feeling this sense of not knowing who I am and what's gonna happen. Honestly, i'm not vary happy considering the fact i kinda retracted my social presence in my life. Because of this i'm constantly ridiculed by my family for being weird. "Why don't you ever leave the house? Are you depressed?" Idk how to feel towards the people who are supposed to be there for me, especially my mom. I opened up to her about how i was feeling, and she completely disregarded what i said, saying I have no reason to be sad. Which really pissed me off because i can't tell her, "hey i did a fuck ton of drugs last year and now i feel constantly disassociated and i can't open my eyes without seeing the most fucked shit." So that's how i'm doing, in spite of her doings, i've picked up making music. If you're interested in listen, i'll leave a link in my profile. Much love guys, Andrew G

    Hello

    Hey man, we know you're going through shit because I go through it, same with everyone else here. Just know you're not alone and we KNOW what's it like to be at our lowest point. Many people here have posted multiple times in a span of 3 min because they're on the brink of suicide, and many people come to their aid. This place has trolls, same with everywhere else. For the most part we're very welcoming and if you need people to talk to, we're here. I still have open eyed visuals, really bad starbursts, same with halos, and my closed eyed visuals are still apparent. I get very anxious frequently, so i know what's like. We're here for you, much love. Andrew <3 (Sorry if i kinda rambled, just being honest.)
  13. tell your doc your symptoms, test other medications, my dude. a lot of people who try SSRI's tend to have an uptick in symptoms. let your doc know what you're experiencing and get a medication that makes your symptoms not so distressful. It's a process and you'll make it.
  14. stay sober man, I know exactly how you're feeling. Been sober for 9 coming onto 10 months now. It'll feel like forever because it has for me. Just stay focused and you'll feel better, i can promise you that much.
