  1. Hey all, so i was quite worried these past few months that I was slowly developing HPPD, due to a number of visual disturbances that increased in frequency and what not, but I can successfully say that it has either disappeared or was a figment of my imagination/anxiety. So to start, I have never experienced Visual snow, DP, DR, micro or macropesia, any kind of color distortions, not halos around objects (just lights) and NO closed eye visuals. So that in an of itself should have told me it was not HPPD, but who knows. Anyhow, the few things I have experienced were tracers, what I thought were afterimages, and ghosting of streetlights/halos/starbursts. As of now, during the day I notice absolutely nothing wrong in my vision. At night, after staring at a computer screen for a while, I tend to notice some ghosting, but I have figured out that my starbursts and what not were both normal, or a byproduct of my now diagnosed nearsightedness. Turns out my afterimages are normal as well. They only occur on lights, no objects. Tracers have also been found to be a result of my anixety. I think that my anxiety made them worse, and now I realize if I wave my hand in front of my face a .25 second tracer is normal, nothing to be concerned about. So I am here to let you all know, you should reconsider mild HPPD, and know that it could be a byproduct of you just looking for it. However, I recognize it is definitely real. Though, as a result of this experience, I will never do any drug outside or weed or alcohol ever again.
  2. Anyone??
  3. Hey all, what is your experience with reading text in a book with hppd? I have seen words on my computer screen kind of move a little, def no visual snow or anything. Do words move all around when u all read, like move multiple lines, or how do they Appear to you P.s there is no swirling of text in a textbook, only like a computer background, even then only late at night
  4. Well question to all of you diagnosed HPPD'ers, with regards to floaters do they just intrude in your vision, or are they justwhen staring at the sky? Also, how pronounced is your visual snow?
  5. Yea, well did the DPDR worsen after onset as well? Or were they pretty much constant? Anyone else have any advice on whether or not it seems like early HPPD?
  6. Well, I am pretty sure we have normal tracers, after seeing the doctor today, seeing a tracer in front of your face is normal. HPPD sufferers seem to face tracers off of every object, especially those in the distance. Like when cars pass by, or people pass by. But i have quit all drugs, except alcohol of course
  7. Well, mainly it is the night time halos and ghosting around streelights, as well as the tracers when objects are in front of my face. When you all get tracers, is it off lots of objects like passing cars? I just dont know what degree of tracers points towards HPPD. I never did LSD so I really dont know what real tracers look like, but I noticed a tracer when i wave like my hand in front of my face or some other object. Never on passing objects in the distance.
  8. Yea, I have not tripped in since that last shroom trip, nor have I smoked pot in over a two months. So I am going to be riding the sober train for qute some time
  9. I hope all is well with everyone, So I am one of those, maybe have maybe don't have full blows HPPD. To give you some background, I have only ever tripped on shrooms 4 times, and those were all spaced about 5 months apart, across two years. Secondly, I have robo tripped rather often in my past, never more than once in a month though, although not in the past 6 months. My last trip on anything was in mid October 2011 and was about a 3/4 of an eighth of shrooms. The trip was rather intense, but I rode it through and gamed all night pretty hard. However over the past three weeks, I have been noticing some weird effects, and I think HPPD may be the cause, and I would like you guys' opinions. I trust you all before i would trust anyone else. BEFORE I describe my symptoms however, I would like to let you all know I went to a opthamologist who told me that I had a case of nearsightedness, although not to a great degree. So here is a list of symptoms, or lack thereof for some. Visual: EDITED Visual Snow- Absolutely none, even if i try to force something like visual snow, I cannot see any Afterimages- After speaking with you all I would say no I do not have afterimages. I only get them when I stare directly at lights, never on other objects Ghosting- Again, I never see ghosting during the day, although when I am driving, I sometimes see a slight ghosting effect over top of road signs (nearsightedness or HPPD). I also do not get auras on people Starbursts, These are not very prominent, however, I have begin noticing some starbursts off of headlights while driving at night, again NOTHING during the day. These starbursts also go away off of lights when I get close to them (So could be that im LOOKING for it and could be that its nearsightedness) Tracers- The only tracers I get are when i move my hands really fast in front of my face, or my cell phone really fast in front of my face in a dark room. The tracers never come off moving objects though CEV's: NONE, I dont even see patterns if I try in carpets or outside. I never actually see any patterns when i close my eyes, nor on walls or or carpets. I dont get breathing either, atleast I dont think so. Text- Text is PERFECTly fine, however black letters on white backgrounds keep shifting slightly if I concentrate on them hard. This could be some form of binocular instability, but I also know its super odd. It does not interfere with my reading in text books, because the words do not shift. It is solely on like really black text on a white background. Floaters: I do see floaters occasionally when I look outside at the sky, but they are slight and not intrusive at all. I would have to look for them. Psychological: I really don't understand DP or DR, however I can say that I never really feel out of control, or like things are cartoony. Sometimes I notice myself talking in my head a lot, but I assume thats more the anxiety from thinking I have HPPD. Odd but possibly related: At night, I get really weird shit going on now. Right before bed, it is like I am in this weird state between sleeping and waking. My mind begins to run on and on, but then just as sleep is about to happen, I JOLT back awake, like something triggered this Oh shit what are you thinking about and it makes me get really anxious for a bit. I also seem to get blasted by bright lights as I wait for sleep, even when its a pitch dark room. Could this possibly be related to my anxiety over POSSIBLY having HPPD, or what. It is not like CEV's where you see patterns, its just like lights in my vision as my eyes adjust. So I really want your opinion, do you all think I have HPPD. Could this be a early onset of HPPD, or is it just a combination of me stressing out over the thought of HPPD and really just my nearsightedness. I have no idea what is going on, but I feel you all would have the best idea.
