Eh, just got off my first phone call trying to schedule an appointment to be seen. Incredibly painful. After explaining/describing the situation: "...So you want to be checked into our drug rehabilitation/ substance abuse program?" "No, no, I'm not addicted and I don't abuse drugs. Never have. I mean, I've used drugs, but only a handful of times, and I was never addicted or anything..." Irritated silence. "Okay, so you're hallucinating?" "No, like I said before, it's not hallucinations...just visual disturbances. I repeat, I do not have, and have never had delusions or symptoms of pychosis. Anxiety and depression, yes, but they are ancillary to the other symptoms." Irritated silence. "Um, I'll leave a note, but I don't think anyone will be able to see you without a recommendation/consultation..." And so it begins! So looking forward to this. Any 'interesting' doctor horror stories to share? Or, on the positive flip side, support/success stories?
How did you find out that you had HPPD? Did your doctor told you that or did you have to find it out by yourself? As in my case, i had to find it out all by myself. My doctor thought that i had a psychosis. Best wishes Erik.
