Hi Folks, new to the board but feel i got something to share. I have had HPPD for 11 years and this is my third episode of the condition. To Summrise, i first got it aged 17 following a bad trip. I expereinced visual snow coupled with anxiety/panic attacks. This last about six months durinth whihc time I continued to use drugs and drink heavily. I never really became that concerned about the symptoms and put them down to excessibve drug use. I therefore decied to abstain from all drugs and adopt a healthier lifestyle. iN short i started thinking positvely and began excercising. I had na unwavering beleift the sympeoms would go and they didi in three weeks.

Fastforward six months, i have now resumed using drugs, namley lsd, xtc, speed etc. Whilst at home one night, I experience horredous hullicinations depsite habing no drugs in my system. This is accompained by a severe panic attack. Long story short, the visuals return and i am argophobic for eight months and suicidal. I do not use for this period of time including alcohol. However, life is intolerable, so i start to drink to cope-major error. two years later symptoms leave me-reason unknown. I return to normal functioning for two years before taking 1 xtc. Immedaite return of symptoms. I have not used drugs or alcohol for 7 years, work full time and lead healthy lifestyle. I only found name for this condition last year.

Anyway, i wondrede if anyone in the Scotland area would be intersted in meeting up to form some formal support groups?

Hey man, sorry to hear about what youve been through.

Im not from scotland, but i was just wondering why you said that turning to alcohol was a big mistake...was it because you feel into that hole as well, or because it made your symptoms worse? Personally im not much of a drinker, i just do it on occassion, and i just wanted to know what your experience was with the juice, since im kinda new to hppd...
