    [–] What are some uncommon symptoms you have? Maybeiwillbeokay 4 points ago in visualsnow

    From the accounts I've read, I think my afterimages are much more severe than what most people with VSS have.

    Also I frequently see things that aren't really there-- for example, when I'm driving I often distinctly see people walking dogs, but when I do a double take, it turns out that I was just hallucinating it.

    And on the topic of hallucinations, I get pretty intense closed-eye hallucinations that I don't often hear about in other accounts of VSS.

    Honestly, the people that I asked in person were pretty evenly split between the top 5 posts, and although I really liked the realism, I look more different from that picture irl than the lens distortion makes it appear.

    I'm still getting about 2 submissions every 15 minutes, so I decided to release the reference pictures once this post turns 1 day old.

    [–] Imagine thinking that 7 is green Maybeiwillbeokay 1 points ago in Synesthesia

    Lol, it's called synesthesia. There are many varieties, of which I have several, but this post is specifically a reference to grapheme-color synesthesia, a phenomenon where individuals involuntarily assign colors to numbers, letters, or words.

    These synesthetic associations, while they vary person-to-person, are typically very strong, and they remain consistent through one's entire life, so our community has made a joke of "arguing" about the colors of specific numbers. (But don't let anyone tell you that 7 is anything other than blue)

    Of course there are many other types of synesthesia, and I encourage you to do further research on them-- it's a very fascinating condition.

    Anyways, to answer your question, I decided to release the photos at 8:00 PM EST, since I still have lots of fresh submission coming through.

    [–] does anyone in this sub actually have VS diagnosed by a professional or are you all self diagnosed? Maybeiwillbeokay 2 points ago in visualsnow

    I'm diagnosed, but the doctor didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. Plus VS specialists are few and far between, so scheduling an appointment is difficult.

    I'm striken by what a great idea you've hit on with this sub, which is why I posted to try to bring the sub back. If you're interested, I'd be honored to take control of the sub and get a couple mods together.

    Might be a broken link, try posting again?

    EDIT: it works now!
