  1. Yeah I just do it once in a while, not much. How did the psychosis manifest, did you quit using it completely?
  2. Some additional information: The Amlodipine initially made me feel better on 5 mg. It calmed me down and reduced dissocative sensations. When the dosage got increased I felt bad but like i said, that might have had other reasons. Sertraline eliminated the negative symptoms I suffered at this point. I advise against medication during your first two years of recovery because - in my experience - your brain is in a sensitive state during this period and might react too strongly too such substances. When I started Sertraline, I was in a state of relative stability. Another i
  3. Hello, in November 2016 I had a very bad impactful trip on psychedelic mushrooms. My mind was in shambles for many months, I had intense anxiety and depression 24/7. I was not able to drink caffeine, drink alcohol, I had difficulties holding conversations. I was very hypersensitive to everyhing. Minor things like watching videos on my computer in full screen, being in rooms with specific spatial structures, thoughts about topics like the simulation theory, consciousness, life after death sent me into existential dread. So I was trying to live a healthy life, I exercised,
  4. That would be unfortunate if cell death occured and the new-built neurons would be incapable of connecting with each other properly again. Is there some good way to measure if cell death occured in one's brain? And how long would neurons need to regrow and build new connections after apoptosis set in? Hope these questions had not already been discussed.
  5. It just says that I have a relatively shallow Pituitary Gland of 3 - 4 mm. From what I read about the Pituitary Gland, it seems to be involved in some processes which could be relevant for my condition. But tbh I got the MRI results from the lab and then I didn't consult with the psychiatrist again, so I don't know if that could be important.
  6. I got respiratory distress from it and it just made me feel bad. When I was moving my head, it felt like my vision had problems adjusting to it.
  7. HPPD cases are different. For me I'd say, yes it's psychologically. I am basically traumatized from a bad trip. It sounds like Holotropic Breathing could help dealing with stuff like anxiety, depression and DP/DR which are obviously psychologically. I don't know about visuals but HB seems to be heavily neurogenesis-promoting so I am sure it could also help with possible neurological malfunctions (just like meditation, yoga, exercise and even CBT can too). However HB can trigger/ bring up a lot of psychological issues and is often compared to a drug-free psychedelic trip. That is why it is prob
  8. Bumping this, Holotropic Breathing seems to be an interesting option. I might consider consulting a Transpersonal Psychologist.
  9. I actually had lower BP when my DP/DR was high. Now that my DP/DR has subsided, BP is as high as before.
  10. It helped me with depression and anxiety but I don't really take it anymore because I don't like the drowsiness.
  11. That might be true for many cases but I don't think that "HPPD" is the same for everyone, it is a term used to summarize various symptoms triggered by drug use. I am not sure if visuals alone without mental symptoms could be described as mental illness.
  12. Couldn't drink during first months after my bad trip because it made me freak out. Now I can enjoy alcohol again, in fact I might be drinking too much. Guess I will try to cut it out again so my mind can focus on recovery.
  13. I get migraines since 2005, not all the time but often enough. Have been wondering if there is a correlation to my weird reaction to psilocybin. However this dreadful feeling and migrain headaches don't really appear simultaneously and I didn't get this feeling before I took mushrooms.
  14. Lion's Mane made me feel temporarily worse. I might try it again someday with a lower dosage or with a different brand.
