Age 22 - Visual snow and brain fog 99% gone, energy & confidence way up

Printer-friendly version

deer in the snowI have been browsing this forum for 3 years ever since my visual snow started. This is my first post where I wanted to share my story and road to recovery. My visual snow started when I was in 2nd year University.

At this time, I launched two internet companies in the past and was very very passionate about entrepreneurship. I worked crazy hours for years prior, pretty much all day everyday on the computer writing code and thinking of the next big idea. I was absolutely obsessed with it. Now on my 19th birthday, I went out to a bar and got super drunk (legal drinking age where I am is 19). That morning, I woke up with extreme brain fog that I never experienced before in my life. At the time I thought it was a bad hangover but this turned into a hangover that never went away and became permanent. After that night, I started experiencing extreme nausea and fatigue after eating as well as permanent brain fog and anxiety. After 3 months, my visual snow started to come into play and I literally started to think I was going crazy. I started to see doctors, been through all of the tests and everything came back as normal. They kept telling me everything was in my head. I lived like this for 3 years, became very antisocial and went from an A student to a C student. Still persuade entrepreneurship but had a huge burden from the brain fog and visual snow.

It has been 3 years and my visual snow and brain fog are pretty much gone. I hit extreme burnout which took me 3 years to recover from. So originally, I cut back on all of the crazy hours I used to work, started excersizing, started eating healthy, surrounded myself with positive people, did as many things that I was drawn to but this improved my condition by 50%. My brain fog would occur 3 days a week but I still had visual snow 24/7. I also suffered from ED(erectile disfunction) and came across a concept called porn induced ED. I followed a reboot plan, sustained from porn and masturbation for 3 months, and boom my brain fog and visual snow were completely gone. I started to become extremely addicted to porn in University since I had my own private room where as before I could only do it one or twice a week.

I am not trying to claim that this will help everyone but this is my story and how I have recovered from it. Thanks to everyone in this community, I just want to say that for me, it was a chemical burnout in the brain that resulted from over working and porn/masturbation addiction.

Just wanted to update that I pretty much have my life back together. Here were the changes have noticed:

  • Visual Snow is 99% gone. I see light flashes occasionally but not nearly as bad as it used to be
  • Anxiety is completely gone. I flew to a new city to attend a bunch of interviews last week and during the interviews, zero anxiety and my speak was so coherent. No umm's, etc. Ended up landing a dream job I never would have been able to get when I was sick.
  • General everyday happiness and energy. I can't explain it in words but it was like I was reborn and given a second change on life.
  • Girls notice me more plus lots of sexual energy.

Overall, I would highly recommend everyone to try this. It has completely changed my life. This is where I was inspired.

Take care everyone


Is it possible for me to talk to the person who posted this? Reading this has been like looking into a mirror for me. I woke up one day about a year and a half ago with unbelievable eye pressure, blurriness, Fatigue, inability to concentrate, malaise, and blood shot red eyes. Prior to this i have been masturbating once a day for almost 5 years and would really like to talk to the person who posted this. You wouldn't believe how much this funk that i am in has effected me over this last year and a half and i feel like the only person in the world who is dealing with something like this. PLEASE reply to this as i would love to speak to someone who seems to have gone through the same thing as me. Thank you.
