  1. Could you PM me your email address? I tried to PM you but your inbox appears to be full.
  2. http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/newsandeventspggrp/imperialcollege/newssummary/news_11-4-2016-17-21-2 "many additional brain areas - not just the visual cortex - contributed to visual processing"
  3. Just to add and be clear as there has been question elsewhere: I was giving insight as a patient and someone with experience of drug use and acquisition. I did not recommend illegalising research chemicals or other psychoactive substances. The perspective I offered was that illegalising research chemicals would not stop most people from using them. The conclusion of the meeting, at least from the perspective of the clinic, was that legislation on psychoactive substance use would do little to affect behaviour, but it is important to have the correct support systems in place for when things do
  4. There has been an extremely important UK clinical development in the recognition and treatment of HPPD and other psychoactive substance related harm. Last week I was asked to speak to ministers from the home office about HPPD to provide an account of the reality of psychoactive substance acquisition, use and danger (i.e HPPD). My experience was called upon to provide the ministers some insight and inform the writing of legislation regarding novel psychoactive substances (this bill: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/psychoactive-substances-bill-2015). It was also used as an opportun
  5. Thank you for your response I have edited the post to make my points clearer and also gone into more detail. If you have read it already, please re-read. And let me know if I can clarify anything.
  6. Hello, I hope you are all as well as can be. It's been a long time since I posted. This is largely because my HPPD does not affect me anymore. I still have visual distortions but I no longer have any other symptoms that I attribute to HPPD (I feel anxious at times and feel lethargic at others but I do not feel that I can relate that to my HPPD; it's just part of my experience). I have read many posts of this nature on the board and largely ignored them, but with my own experience to offer, I think it is important to reiterate the psychological aspect one brings to HPPD. Put simp
  7. Similar results to the first two days. Am writing an article to hopefully be published on the experience. Thanks for your interest.
  8. That would be great ! If not you I will get someone else to document it.
  9. Hey jay, I am the guy The point of the happening is less if staring at the television static actually works, but the idea is to create a moving spectacle that draws people into our world and thus promotes awareness. Please spread the word if you can - it would be much appreciated. Best,
  10. PLEASE ATTEND THIS EVENT/INVITE PEOPLE/SPREAD THE WORD: https://www.facebook.com/events/361353200712476/ The intention of this event is to promote awareness and raise funds for the visual snow campaign through a moving spectacle: walking into an immersive musical experience with the image of VS patients attempting to heal. It does not matter if the healing proposal works or not - it is using the spectacle to create awareness (and raise funds) that is important. Please please do your best to come to this and participate - it could be very important and influential if we get enough momen
  11. I am talking about abusing alcohol. I find that I am all or nothing - for me I need to cut out drinking entirely to avoid any effects to my condition. It is good if you can control your drink / doesn't have any long term effects. How often do you consume alcohol?
  12. Seriously: stop drinking, start exercising. Eat healthily, be active. We keep saying this to each other all the time, but I wonder how many of us pull it off, truly. I just came across a post of mine from two years ago where I said I had given up drinking. I have given up drinking quite a few times over the last couple of years, but only temporarily, and I have also have had periods where I abused alcohol. I even abused alcohol (and benzos) last week after what started as trying to notch down my anxiety before a performance. I cannot believe that I still do this, that I have anxious moments
