I'm glad you got better and this kind of post is very welcome. And congratulations for stopping the weed use, it does worsen hppd.

But can I ask you how many books have you read on the subject on that 1.5 year? Or how much time you spent trying to figure out what causes HPPD? Because that's lot of time and you could've added too much to our cause on that time, even if you used just part of our free time.

honestly man I dont know if prescription drugs are the best choice..have u tried doing nything to get ur mind off of it? Like working out or playing sports? all the symptoms you describe are dead on with mine even to this day...but i gues i have learned to cope and accept that this may not ever go away..

Inter Milan failed to take advantage of Juventus defeat to AC Milan on Sunday as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Parma. Andrea Stramaccioni wear cheap soccer cleats side enjoyed the lion share of possession throughout but failed to supply enough service to Diego Milito and Rodrigo Palacio up front, and an industrious Gialloblu were rewarded for their perseverance when Nicola Sansone wear adidas f50 adizero trx fg belted in the game`s only goal 15 minutes from time. Winless in two, Inter needed a positive result to keep pace with those at the top of the league, but with just four minutes played it was clear that it would be no easy feat. Aleandro Rosi wear adidas predator absolado lz charged forward and fed Marco Marchionni wide on the right and, in attempting to intercept the cross, Walter Samuel inadvertently sent it towards his own goal. Fortunately for him, Samir Handanovic reacted well to keep it out and avoid an early disaster wear nike ctr360 maestri iii. The Nerazzurri reacted positively and increased their ball retention in order to assert themselves on the game. After Ricardo Alvarez had been felled whilst on a scything run in the 13th minute, Fredy Guarin smashed a powerful shot from the resultant free kick but it only found the side netting wear nike mercurial vapor ix fg. The visitors were unable to make the most of their superior possession and Handanovic was again tested with 32 minutes played. Amauri ran across the defender to meet a cross but his powerful header was straight at the keeper, who palmed the ball to safety. Inter string of corners finally created a clear-cut chance when Guarin wear nike mercurial vapor superfly iii fg deep delivery was sent back into the middle by Andrea Ranocchia, and an unmarked Esteban Cambiasso was unable to steer his header past Antonio Mirante. Jonathan Biabiany watched a shot swerve narrowly wide on the stroke of half-time and he came close again five minutes after the restart. Massimo Gobbi cross was met by the head of the Frenchman but his connection was too weak to send the attempt on target wear nike mercurial vapor viii fg. That chance paved the way for a far more open and stretched second half, in which either side could take the lead. In the 63rd minute it could well have been the Nerazzurri, but once more Mirante made an impressive save. Guarin was the source one more, but his ferocious 30-yard piledriver was turned behind by the keeper. But the inability to create chances for Stramaccioni wear nike tiempo legend iv elite men was punished finally punished in the 75th minute. Sansone, who had been quiet for much of the evening, surged into the Inter half and skipped past a weak tackle from Guarin before rifling an effort past Handanovic and into the bottom corner. Defeat means the Milan-based club drop to fourth in the table - four points adrift of Serie A leaders Juventus - while Parma rise to an impressive seventh place wear adidas world cup sg. Inter Milan: Handanovic; Ranocchia, Samuel, Juan Jesus; (Duncan 86) Zanetti, Guarin, Cambiasso, (Livaja 90) Nagatomo; Alvarez; (Coutinho 73) Palacio, Milito. Parma: Mirante; Rosi, (Benalouane 74) Zaccardo, Paletta, Gobbi; Acquah, Valdes, Marchionni; Biabiany, Amauri, Sansone (Belfodil 78).

I hear you Craig, I've had HPPD for around.. I don't know, 6 or 7 years, I never was one to keep count of things like that, I found it as just another form of dwelling on it. It really does get better though, this is true. I consider myself 80% cured for sure, I only suffer from snow and the movement of objects if I stare at them. There needs to be more posts like this on here for newcomers to see that there is hope in this condition where there seems to be none.
