I Think I Have HPPD

I was looking through the experience reports and came across something known as hppd. I had never heard of this before so I did a little research only to discover that this was a condition that I think I have been suffering from for almost a year now.

it was early on in my initial romance with psychedelics while attending a weekend music festival. At the point before going to this festival my only experiences were with pot which I smoked very heavily, mushrooms which I had maybe 3 good trips at this point, x which I had tried once but with a weak pill, and salvia. I went a little wild at this festival and think that I may have taken 5 x pills and close to 10 hits of acid as well as smoking over an ounce of bud. At sometime during this hazy weekend is when I developed the hppd. What led me to believe it was this weekend that caused it was that the first day in my normal life I noticed the visuals they were exactly the same as the visuals I has seen dancing through the sky that weekend. The vision was of millions of sky blue circles dancing and interweaving in the sky. I'll admit that I welcomed the chance for that visual to resurface because it was beautiful.

since then I have noticed visuals at various times throughout the day everyday. They are especially strong while smoking weed and also taking 5-htp. The visuals are always around if I look for them. Mostly it will be colored floaters in the air usually made of purples and greens. They usually look like a triangle made of three circles. When I close my eyes after seeing these they will still be there and are even bigger brighter and stronger when I open my eyes.

another thing that I have noticed is that it feels like I have the ability to see every little bit of air that is between me and any object that I look at. This is very hard to describe in written word but I had never noticed this before hallucinogens. The last sign of hppd that I have is that a lot of times especially in dark room when I'm tired the room will appear sort of staticy and full of more color than it should be, object seem to always be playing tricks on me in my peripheral vision and some very occasionally objects shift.

I haven't tried to get rid of this. I actually think it is ok to live with, it does get annoying because looking into the sky not only causes a ton of floaters but my eyes seem overly sensitive to light now. I still use hallucinogens very often and the condition seems to lessen but not very quickly.
