HPPD and Depersonalization Derealization Disorder

Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD) often occurs simultaneously with Depersonalization Disorder (DPD). Often times people get both at the same time. In this video I talk about the symptoms of both, how they relate.

Depersonalization is often “triggered” by taking a hallucinogenic drug. If the feelings of unreality don’t go away you have DPD. The deep causes of DPD actually start in childhood, and it also has to do with your personality style.

Although people with often can get both, sometimes they just have either one or the other.

In HPPD, people experience visual hallucinations, which really isn’t the case so much in depersonalization disorder. In depersonalization people may experience macropsia (where things appear bigger than they actually are) as well as micropsia (where things appear smaller than they actually are). But they don’t experience seeing things moving around.

If you feel cut off from the world, and/or cut off from your sense of self, AND you also experience the visual hallucinations of HPPD, then you have both and I highly recommend you check out my ten hour program which will help you get over depersonalization and derealization symptoms.
