      I did ketamine infusions (they were not covered by insurance, I think other administration routes can be, but I couldn’t get into any of those clinics). So I got an IV infusion 2-3 times a week (more twice a week tho) got several weeks. It really helped! The idea of ketamine is super interesting. It’s not an antidepressant and it’s not meant to be used for ever, just on an as needed basis. What it does is increase your neuroplatisity. Meaning that it’s easier to form new healthier neuro pathways and allows antidepressants that maybe weren’t doing the job, to be able to do their job. Which is so fascinating to me. I also loved my infusions. I would occasionally get nauseous after but they started preemptively giving me Zofran and it was no longer an issue. I was able to chill out in the room and it relaxed me and made me feel a bit goofy and silly, but I was actually experiencing emotions and life again! Ketamine changed my life.

      Best experience. I had forgotten how it felt not to be tense throughout my entire body and mind. It really opened my eyes to what feeling BETTER could mean. I never thought I could feel like that again :) it depends on the person for how long it lasts but it can be weeks to months in terms of when you’ll need additional treatments or booster shots.
