Pancakes Posted February 3, 2011 Report Share Posted February 3, 2011 Hello all, I am new to the board. I was medically diagnosed with HPPD during a mental institution stay in Nov 2010. I now routinely go to therapy and see a psychiatrist and psychologist. I'm 19 years old, have only done mushrooms twice and lsd once and have developed HPPD. Although, I did use a lot of many different drugs before I ever did hallucinogens, including DPH and DXM. I am thinking that increased my likelihood of developing HPPD, but all of this is irrelevant. I am wondering if there are any known full recoveries (no hallucinations or delusions, no medication needed, no abnormal feelings in the brain/mind, no depersonalization or derealization) from clinically diagnosed HPPD. I am also interested in hearing the stories of your own struggles with HPPD. I have been suffering with mine for 3 and a half months now. My episodes seem to come and go, mainly coming and staying. I can feel them before they intensify, and I can also induce an episode upon myself. I am able to visualize things clearly in my mind with my eyes open, sometimes involuntarily which is unsettling and distracting. I have problems focusing on anything. Keeping a conversation steady is very problematic for me because I lose concentration within a few minutes. Although I suffer from all of this, I still maintain a job and stay on a steady work out regime. I find my disorder to be particularly debilitating but I still struggle forwards. Most of my close friends are not aware of my condition, and those who are are highly skeptical of it and aren't particularly supportive or willing to talk about it with me or provide comfort.
