HPPD stands for Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder. I hope this post finds the right people, in no way do I condone taking substances but this post is about my lived experience dealing with HPPD.


After my consumption of substances my life has changed drastically. Almost every day feels like a blur and as though my symptoms may never go away. I get extreme visual effects almost every day which triggers anxiety and depression. Thoughts get louder and I get a sense of derealisation as if things aren’t real. But it’s not all negative, I have learned to cope with it and it has given me a new perspective on life, how precious each moment truly is. It’s been almost a year dealing with HPPD but I experience time differently now, I take everything day by day hopefully soon I will recover from these flashbacks. It’s a blessing and a curse.
