ryland05 Posted June 13, 2011 Report Share Posted June 13, 2011 So, I was an idiot and tried acid earlier on in the year, had a bad trip, and was never going to try it again. Everything was fine for a couple of months. Fast forward until about 7/8 days ago. I had a flashback while trying to go to sleep... Since I had a bad trip, it was accompanied by an extreme panic attack, that I was in the same state of mind as I was when I was tripping. Since then, I have been seeing things that a normal person doesn't see... Like: tracers on anything that moves, not too bad, lasting maybe a split second; phosphenes under my eyelids when I close them, these morph into shapes like eyes some times, mostly just lines and geometric shapes; if i look at a blank wall it will start forming into shapes; and objects sometimes seem to be moving when they aren't. These, from what I have looked up seem to be common symptoms of HPPD. The worst thing is that since I had a bad trip, I get anxiety from seeing these things. The anxiety has died down since the flashback, but it's still there, hanging over my head... How long does HPPD last on average? And is there any way to stop feeling anxiety when I notice these things that are caused by HPPD? The anxiety makes it horrible, I probably wouldn't mind if I saw those things and I didn't get scared of them. Thanks a lot for any help that I might be given!
