How to deal with anxiety from HPPD?
    #8797165 - 08/19/08 06:34 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

I don't know how to say this without being so simple and blunt.

I look at the sky and it looks a little funny to me. When I took at trees or cement, streets and things like that I can tell they don't look right. The HPPD could be mild hallucinations from my medication, or it could be HPPD. But the point is I try to go outside and look at things and try to relax, but everything will just be so overwhelming it gives me anxiety. I 've had anxiety for awhile now, and I'm trying not to be a hermit I just want to go outside and be able to relax.

Any help is very muchly appriciated.

I have constant static vision, halo's, etc.  It gave me great anxiety.  Accept it.  That's your only choice.  Let it be your friend, like a constant companion who reminds you that you got out of the deal relatively unharmed.  That's my view.  Because I also ended up having a psychotic break with schizophrenic features for about 6 months to a year.  I'm happy that all I have left is HPPD.

It's all in your viewpoint.  You choose your stance.

I'm interested in hearing more about your situation.  How much have you used psychedelics?  Would you say you have abused them?  Was it one particularly strong trip that left you with HPPD?  And what kind of medication are you on??

There's a Buddhist saying: "Form is emptiness, emptiness is form".  You may be having trouble because you are seeing more clearly, in an interesting way.  I don't want to put too fine a point on it, but to me, everything I see is like a Rorschach: it's reflecting back my own way of processing the world, reflecting what's going on inside me.  So in order to come to a healthy perspective, look within yourself.  Don't judge your anxiety when it arises...Feel it.  Respect it.  Sit silently with it.  Whence does it arise?  Are you causing it to arise? 

Through this kind of self-inquiry you may come to a calmer center where your perception of reality doesn't freak you out.  All form is empty...perception is guided by mind.  Own your mind.

I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

Is your anxiety due to the fact that you're getting anxious over the HPPD, or do you have anxiety in general?

If it's the former, then just accept it.  View it as a free bonus to the way you see the world, and soon you'll be comfortable enough with your altered perception that the anxiety will just slip away.

If it's the latter, then this is a trickier problem.  You could try a mushroom trip to resolve the anxiety, but this could also make it worse.  If you want to really play it safe, try abstaining from all drugs (including weed) for a month and see if the situation improves.

It might not be directly related to your problem, but how do you usually cope with change? Because the reason why you might be having problems accepting your HPPD (I gather that it's just a mild form considering your descriptions, and nothing severe as seeing a pink elephant in the middle of the road when you're driving) could be because you normally have problems accepting and implementing the results of change in your life.

So what if the sky looks a little different from what you were used to see? Learn to enjoy what you see now and stop freaking out. Use it as a reminder that in the same way there are people that have different opinions than yours, and that, for them at least, they are just as valid as yours.
