Jayjoe Posted March 8 Report Share Posted March 8 Hello all I stumbled onto this site by complete accident and decided to make an account to share my experience with an LSD induced HPPD issue that has so far lasted for only 33 years lol. I hope that number doesn't create any fear as everyone is different and others it may last no where near as long. A little background. I took LSD If I recall around 20 times and mushrooms around maybe 10 times within a period of a couple years starting when i was 18 and ending when i was 20. To make a long story short, I have had this HPPD issue ever since 1990 and from time to time it still comes back to this day. The last acid trip was a bad one and from that day forward it started. The first 5 years were the worst with walls breathing, clouds forming into faces, bad afterimages, Bizarre shapes and patterns when i closed my eyes to go to sleep, depression and anxiety etc. This continued for a long time but slowly got better and better throughout the years and I just learned to ignore it. Today at 52 years old my only symptoms are mild afterimages particularly when i look away from computer screens and TV screens and a small to medium sized purple dot in my peripheral vision from time to time. Strange that one is yes. Anyway as a 33 year sufferer from this silly disorder the biggest advice I can give to anyone else suffering from this is to advise everyone you know to stay far far away from any Psychedelics of any sort and for yourself I can not stress this enough YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY quit taking any drugs or alcohol of any sort for the rest of your life and yes weed is real bad for triggering and making symptoms way way worse. You are playing Russian roulette with you mind and soul if you suffer from HPPD and you continue taking any drugs or drinking alcohol as this WILL magnify the problem. You absolutely need to be positive and also get lots of exercise and eat right to be able to cope and be aware that while it will take time, you will eventually get through this and lead a happy life. cheers.. 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
