I joined this forum about three years ago. Three years ago, I got bad bad depersonalisation as a result of a bad trip after smoking weed in Amsterdam. About a year ago, my head started to feel better and I started to get connected to reality. What did I do? Nothing really. I considered taking medications but I have not taken anything apart from diazpem twice that made things worse.

I am not fully recovered and I still have some times when my head feels blank and my vision is blurred and that FRUSTRATES me a lot. Coffee/coke and things that have caffeine help my blank mind and enable me to connect better with people but I don't know why. Sleeping well makes my DP much more tolerable the next day. I am still concerned that I will not recover completely though. I have a job now and when my head is bad, I get really really frustrated and I feel I could do much better if I manage to get over DP fully. I am just concerned that these episodes or DP attacks will become chronic and have to get used to them.

I send my hugs to everyone who struggles with this because I know what it is like to struggle with this horrible mental disorder

It is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT that someone of your age, thirties that is, gets this as a result of using weed. It certainly proves that this disorder is not only about adolescence or developing brain, but that there is rather a common impact pattern in users' brain structure regardless of having a brain under 25 age or not, which would make researchers to conduct research on this condition with much more variety and different age groups!! Can't wait for this to be legalized fully, so that they can conduct large scale research on this. How long do you think it will take for the UK to legalize it both recreationally and medicinally, any estimations? (Presumably you are from the UK, based on your profile?) :)

There are people who suggests that 'marijuana is a trigger only if you have anxiety, you would have had it either way even if you didn't use it' blah blah. I was celebrating the end of my studies with marijuana for fuck's sake, there was no anxiety in me at all and yet I ended up with it!! And your adult brain proves that it certainly has to do with marijuana having a certain impact on the brain I believe, I hope there are more examples of your case as well in time.

Do you have visual problems, as in your surroundings look weird and unreal, this veil between your eyes and the real world? Or is it more blank mind and brain fog for you? Do you only have episodes of it, so it is not chronic?

Hello. I have episodes that come and go but there are many factors that can make it intense: Sleeping badly, stress, alcohol. I feel that I am fragile now and always have to look after my health. Otherwise, I can easily relapse. How old are you?

Some people have allergic reactions to peanuts. Some have fatal reactions to bee stings. In regards to cannabis and anxiety, it can

be said that "correlation does not imply causation".
