noodlesmolloy Posted November 15, 2011 Report Share Posted November 15, 2011 Hi all, I am a 3rd year neuropscy undergrad in the north of england. I am studying new frontiers in biopsychology, what that means in english is... that I am looking at inovations in the techniques and technology of the fizzy bits that bounce round in the brain. I am writting to ask for your help. I have to complete a module, including a presentation and a portfoilo about a disorder that intrests me. HPPD intrests me! I started college with a girl who became a great friend, we both got through college and were accepted to uni to study psychology. College for my friend been a struggle as she developed trouble reading and concentrating on text and got to the point that she was terribly unhappy with life, love and the world. She deferred for a year while the docs and opticians tried to fgure out what was wrong with her eye sight. They could not or would not diagnose her. Of course she did a lot of her own research and figured out that she had HPPD. The more that she tried to discuss this with her doc the more frustrated that she became as the docs over here have little or no knowledge of the disorder. so much to the point that two years ago she went to the states and was diagnosed by Dr Abrahams. only to discover that she can not get the drugs to treat her her in the uk. So she is in the process of get a doc to diagnose her with Dr Abrahams help so she can recieve the treatment here. It has been a rollercoaster ride for her and I have helped along the way as best I could. I would like to know how difficult it has been for you to be diagnosed or even if you have been diagnosed. For the more techy of you what what techology was used ie mri,eeg, tomography. dont worry if i dont sound like i know what i am on about... I dont but i want to know. If Ididnt I would not ask. so any thing would be useful. P.s. I am looking at doing a masters and then on to a phd... I am hopeing this will be the start of some thing good, there appears to be so little in this field here in england to help anyone. noodles Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
