Danny13 Posted February 7, 2012 Report Share Posted February 7, 2012 I will keep this brief and cut out the waffle but hope to offer hope and advice to anyone struggling HPPD and DP/DR for 19 years I was a victim of the early rave culture in the UK. Didn't know what was wrong with me so carried on regardless of the disturbances I was experiencing. Simply doing more drugs and booze with not a care in the world. Dropped out of university with no job to go to. I was spending days locked away in my room. I made the decision not to let this beat me, I was going to control HPPD not HPPD control me. So where am I now? I have a top job as a director for a multi million pound international company. 3 beautiful children Masters degree Member of MENSA All of this achieved with HPPD and DP/DR. It has not been easy and many times I have felt like locking myself away again Meds that have helped me: Cipralex for anxiety and dp/dr Valium at high doses completely eliminated symptoms although I haven't done any for years Meds that did nothing or made me worse: Lamictal Seroxat Sertraline Clonazepam Clonodine Zispin Seroquel and a few more I have forgotten Other things that have helped: Neurofeedback (very expensive so had to stop) Exercise Diet Positive thinking Limit alcohol Keep yourself busy, do not focus on symptoms and look after your body and mind (this all took me 10 years +) Life is not over it has just changed, embrace the change and take control once again.
