Hi all, I am a 21 year old man who has been struggling with HPPD since August 5, 2017. My family has a history of anxiety and this may have played a impact in why I got diagnosed. I am currently in college at a University, and have been seeing a psychiatrist since September 1. I am also taking clonazepam daily and it has tremendously helped me with my symptoms of anxiety and panic disorder since I got HPPD. One night, I was at a friend's house and he had a Wana Brand Sour Gummie watermelon edible. I have smoked twice before and occasionally drink, so I figured I would try it because we were going to a concert and he told me it was a gift for me. Well, number one I took it on a empty stomach, just came off of having mono for three months, and was not really up for doing it in the first place. I ended up taking it and the next three hours were a nightmare. I was tripping, seeing glasses full of water even when I had just drank them. I also experienced severe headaches and migraines and my friend looped a couple of times. So when we went out, I had him help me around. Eventually it wore off that night, but I have been diagnosed with HPPD and dealing with it ever since. Two weeks after the incident (I had a lot of beer in between), I had a panic attack one night and had a friend help me drive somewhere after I stopped and let him drive. I was having trouble sleeping and waking up with panic attacks every night after that. I finally went and saw a psych on September 1, and got prescribed clonazepam. Like I said before it has helped a ton, and I see him every two weeks. While my anxiety and panic attacks (none since meds) has decreased, I am still experiencing visual snow with glares and halos and stuff in my vision. I have abstained from alcohol, drugs, stimulants, and any sexual activity since August 18. I am in college and it has greatly affected me this semester. I cannot quit school, so I just try to do the best that I can. Plus my psych is offered through the school. We have talked a lot and he tells me that based off of my experience and the fact that I only had the edible once, I should be okay within months to come. He advocates I also take one a day to get in vitamins such as magnesium. By the way, he has been dealing with HPPD cases for a very long time from a variety of drugs from LSD to Molly to Weed. So he is very knowledgeable on what's going on. This forum seems very helpful, and I just want to know has anybody had a similar experience to me in the past? I really hope to recover soon, but as we all know this illness could be very brief or last long. Even if you do not have the same experience, is there any advice you could give to me about dealing with this disorder. I just hope to one day have my vision restored to normal and be a little less anxious at times. Thanks for reading and I look forward to engaging in convos with some of you about this.
