  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. I apologize if my words were blunt or contained information you already understand. I would scour the internet/google scholar (use the advanced search functions!) for any literature you can provide your doctor to support your claim for a slow taper. Ime, doctors are much more receptive to scientific literature than their patients. this might help. I just scammed a few sections in one part but they mention the Ashton protocol and even just going to a medical doctor instead and explaining what is going on, as this really needs to be treated more as medical issue than a psyc
  4. I'm sure there are some links between hppd and seizures, but you'll probably never know which caused which, so better to focus on recovery now. Stay sober, get healthy etc (i know this isn't much of an answer!)
  5. I consider this post to be very outdated now, both by my reactions to things and also just the website I was using wasn’t great. I now use self decode for my genetics. most importantly, for my methylation I now follow This protocol by Freddd... it is not for the lighthearted and I haven’t made it fully through it but still I have had enormous benefit from it. https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnx1bHRyYXdlbGxuZXNzcHJvamVjdHxneDo3ODUwNWMwODUyODZjMmM0
  6. Hello, my name is stephen, im 18 yrs old, and for about 6-7 months ive been having visual disturbances such as visual snow,halos and negative afterimages, these were much worse in the beginning and ive had episodes of derealization and depersonalization where it used to be nothing really felt real, ik these are symptoms of HPPD but i never had problems like this when i was doin LSD until i was excercising heavy one day and had a completely random grand mal seizure for abt 8 secs, my nuerologist said that the HPPD could’ve been unlocked by the seizure, but ive never heard of that myself, and iv
  7. Yesterday
  8. I'm not entirely sure if I had VS before HPPD. I noticed the snow at first maybe a month after I took MD, but I asked my friend about it and he misguided me into thinking it was normal. I continued on smoking weed until eventually in October realized my vision was getting worse. My DR doesn't seem too extreme, although when it does happen it scares the shit out of me. It makes me think really existentially, which you might think would be pretty cool, but in reality the question of "am I real" is terrifying. I gave up drinking for about 2 months, but then started back at it. I had my
  9. I was able to work through my initial symptoms back in October/November/December, even when drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes with friends my symptoms rarely became debilitating. It helped my anxiety a lot that things were opening back up after lockdown and we were returning to a sense of normality, and during this time I didn't have much trouble getting work done in college. At Christmas/New Years I came home and the whole family was drinking a lot over the course of a week or two, which I joined in with, and then being back in lockdown things felt a bit surreal. This drinking (and
  10. Oh! Nice to see someone Irish on here. I first found out I had HPPD when I was asking my mom whether when she looks at and away from the light does the blotch of light stay in her vision. I was extremely surprised when she said no, so I started the Googling.. How debilitating are your symptoms? Can you continue on with your college work?
  11. I'm aware of the fact he's tapering me too fast. The problem is I'm in a rural area where he is literally the only prescriber. I have no choice but to go through this jackass of a prescriber. I called him last night and told him I need him to contact me today, and do 0.5mg a month instead. If he doesn't agree I'm simply going to have to yell at him. I can't do the Ashton protocol. I'm very aware of how it's supposed to work, I can't go that route. I know you were just trying to help, but you have indeed made me much more anxious.
  12. No problem bud. If you can, yes. Especially if you’ve drank and noticed it effects you differently from before. Many report that alcohol makes their hppd worse, albeit temporarily for most. Alcohol kinda has a very dirty chemical moa. I can’t think of any brain disorder where it’s recommended. Hell there isn’t even a safe daily amount set by the government anymore. there is some beliefs here on this website that hppd involves some measure of brain injury as a component (scary word but such a common injury). If looking at it this way, one would deff want to avoid
  13. I’ve gone through fast tapers. I don’t recommend it... it’s much better to make a liquid solution and taper so slowly you don’t notice. It’s the easiest on your brain too. my friend did 7 years maxing out at your dose. He went too fast. this isn’t meant to make you anxious, just IMO, you will be in withdrawal for 1-2 years. You can either taper so slow you barely notice, or you can go fast and be in hard withdrawals for 1-2 years. The time will still be the same; the only difference is how much you suffer during that period. I don’t outright say this often but you
  14. Might try it again but every time i do it gets me fucky i think.
  15. I've been trying a choline/inositol combo for 2 weeks... no noticeable difference, for better or worse.
  16. I tried choline but bad reaction. Any work for y’all? I need them for another issue. Have b12 coming tomorrow.
  17. So mythl b12 good or bad? Listed both. Also mythl donors are bad?
  18. Last week
  19. This might be a long one, but here goes. I've been looking at this site since the end of November, and I think I've found what's been affecting me. I'm 22-years old; a college student living in student accommodation away from home during term. I've occasionally experimented with drugs since I was about 15 (in social groups, never alone), but it was only in the last year or so that I ever tried ecstasy or LSD – not something I've done often but I found them quite positive experiences. Both times I took acid were quite low doses, and generally njoyable experiences. The only thing I noticed
  20. I haven't made my own introduction yet, but I've been the same looking at this forum for a couple of months without posting anything. I'm a 22-year old college student, and I know it's not relevant but I'm also from Ireland – so it's good to hear I'm not alone here! I've been experiencing very similar symptoms. I smoked weed with my friends maybe once or twice a month for about a year, and this sometimes caused really unpleasant anxiety (only after doing LSD for the first time – only did it once again, last year). My current predicament began after a caffeine-induced panic attack at the e
  21. Hey Onemorestep, Thank you for your reply. Your perspective is really valuable. Should I abstinent from alcohol as well?
  22. I'm never planning to sell for $/£, just keep until it's worthless or i can use it to buy things in the real world.
  23. Tried it and didn’t notice anything like this! It’s very sedating though for me haha. Gave me some not unpleasant head pressure? Made me need some b12 badddd though for some reason.
  24. Glad to hear you’re being proactive. Keep us updated at the very least it’s nice to have a record of your reaction to come back to in the future if you need it.
  25. Abstinence is the only known thing that can help with time for certain. After a period (its months to years) some leave this “sensitized state” I call the acute phase of hppd. They then either recover or enter the chronic phase. even if you feel “normal” after a period of time, you can still be in the sensitization state and a psych can throw you back in 10x worse than the time before. A mistake I’ve made in the past is thinking in past this stage when I am really not. It’s really quite fascinating in the exponential quality of the increasing intensity of it. even if you
  26. I get this periodically. It’s incredibly irritating at best. I’ve had all sorts of muscular issues since getting hppd though. AFAIK nothing to just take and make it go away... I just do a lot of exercises to chill it out. I find a breath in for 3 seconds into the diaphragm, then upper chest, then belly followed by a 10 second even exhale helps it. Takes some time and practice but it’s also fantastic for excess adrenaline.
  27. I forgot I was mining ethereum for over 2 years, but stopped, because the electric bill at my warehouse was $2K/month. I wish I let it go on a while longer, but sh!t happens. My investment partner paid me for his share of the electricity in ethereum over a month ago... so he's a bit upset, haha. I just bought 30K coins of Ripple. My bank (one of the biggest in Canada) uses the tech for their banking transactions, so I know it's not going anywhere. After the SEC lawsuit is done, I hope it'll jump to where it used to be, so I can let it go and move the money into ethereum.
