  1. Well, It's near month 8 and I still have static vision, after images, shutters, and floaters. I'm determined that I might live with a slight bit of hppd permanently. Mental illnesses like this shouldn't be permanent, I'm sick and tired of this. Even though this only intensifies at times, I shouldn't be living with this for the rest of my life if I abstained from psychedelics this long. Somebody should of warned me about hppd, then I wouldn't of done all that shit. I have ignored it at times when it's barely present, I still shouldn't have to live with this. IF ONLY there was something that could completely diminish visual disturbances, cause i hate living with this. I want to be normal, c'mon there's gotta be a way! Aside from that has anyone been cured? Cause I'm losing hope!!
  2. Dude, don't take acid again while you have hppd (even if it has subsided). You don't want to end up in hell do you? It's fine if you smoke when everything has gotten better, but stronger psychedelics are out of the question. Main reason why I don't enjoy weed is due to my psychedelic binge.
  3. Ya, it's nothing too concerning. The only part is that I want to be able to go back to 100% normal and nothing seems to help. I haven't smoked in a month and it doesn't seem to make a difference. We need to study this shit more and whatever is wrong with our brain chemistry, because that would help us heal much quicker if they know exactly what imbalance is causing it. But for the most part, I just want to be able to enjoy weed again! I really miss those days.
  4. Started taking Lions Mane Mushroom these past couple of days. I've heard that it has cured their symptoms, I didn't because I see more afterimages and grainy vision. I also had to stop taking 5htps since I've heard that it makes hppd worsen and that it could be the reason why I haven't recovered. Also, I mixed ssris with psychedelics which I am certain that it brought on the onset of hppd. And I kept taking those because I thought I needed to, but my brain has rewired so there's no way I'm going back to them. I don't want to see a psychiatrist about it because oftentimes they fuck HPPDers over with antipsychotics which make symptoms far worse. Also I'm quitting weed until my symptoms subside cause what I have is not even remotely close to true hppd. Just slightly grainy vision and a little bit of afterimages (which mostly happen when I look directly at a light. This could also be a transition from ceasing ssri intake, so it's possible that I don't have hppd, but visual disturbances and a bit of derealization. However, I'm not going to trip again because of all this bs shit I'm going through unless hppd can be cured. It's weird that lions mane hasn't been working too well for me apparently, cause I thought for sure it'd help.
  5. Honestly, I have had a mild case of hppd and hopeless that it's ever gonna fade completely after reading all these stories of it not going away. I just want to enjoy my mary jane again. Fml cause I don't want to live with visual perception distortion forever. Fml
  6. I believe so, I get panic attacks whenever I smoke ganj. But I don't have ootb experiences, just immense discomfort. I'm fine, I just don't want to live with static vision, afterimages and floaters for the rest of my life. There's gotta be a way to resolve that, because I'm tired of the lack of awareness on hppd. If only there was a cure. On the other hand I'm gonna see a neurologist sometime soon to determine what's going on.
  7. What's up y'all, so I've been into psychedelics until april after a shroom trip. The trip was good, however I got really sick the day after (may of not been induced by the shrooms) and was caughing up phlem that had blood in it. So I needed to call a doctor after this situation occurred. On the other hand, the hppd didn't set off until I went to a festival and had a joint to myself. I had a major anxiety attack after smoking it, and my vision was not 100% while it happened. I knew deep down that I was fine, just had a major trip out. But after the festival, I was feeling extremely depressed and later noticed a slight bit of visual snow. After this occurred, I decided to be sober for the remainder of the semester. But the vision problems persisted. Ever since I've been feeling this way, I was not fully functional either. My vision consists of afterimages when I see a bright light, eye floaters, and mild visual snow. Additionally, I was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at a young age. But from what I know, psychedelics have been studied to help people with this condition. I'm fine with being autistic, but having vision that's not 100% feels very uncomfortable. Mostly because I'm worried that it won't be the same again. Past drug use consisted of antidepressants (zoloft), daily cannabis for three years. And in a period of 6 months I had two trips of acid (two tabs for both times), three salvia trips (worst trip ever), three shroom trips (which were all amazing). And ever since the last shroom trip, weed has never felt the same again. My weed highs consist of the same dysphoria as salvia, almost like a bad shroom trip. And my visual snow feels worse, on the other hand I don't always feel worse when I smoke. However, I'm taking a long break from weed until my minor hppd is entirely better. Unless this situation is chronic. I stopped taking anti-depressants, and am taking 5-htps, st-johns wort just recently, and omega-3s. Along with a near daily workout. However, I drink fairly often so this will most likely slow my recovery. On the other hand my symptoms don't get worse when I drink. Just recently, I went to see an optometrist and he said my eyes were fine. So therefore I'm aware that the pathways of my visual processing have been fucked up. Just wanted to vent this because it's been bothering me these past couple of months. My symptoms have not been getting better, and it's possible that medication also plays a role in this situation
