How Ketamine Therapy Changed My Husband’s Life

My husband has battled with anxiety and depression his entire life.  Often debilitating and always a daily struggle to keep going. In the 21 years that we have been together, I have experienced his relentless efforts to keep it manageable.  He has tried (more than I can count) different medications, protocols, methods; Read book after book, gone to multiple counselors, doctors and specialists. And yet, no matter what he has tried, he never feels like he is progressing forward.  Only ever clinging to the slightest of hope to go on one more bleak day. 

People often talk about how depression and anxiety affects a person, but they forget how deeply it also affects that person’s spouse or family member.  It touches every part of your life and soul. I describe it like watching a loved one strapped down with weights and drowning in a stormy sea. You are standing there watching them fight, to barely keep their head above water and desperately gasping for air, but you have no way to save them.  You feel helpless, frustrated and exhausted from the daily effort. It takes you to keep hope for two people along with being the primary person to manage all aspects of your life. Countless nights holding them as they cry uncontrollably and trying to convince them that life is worth continuing.  This takes a huge toll on your heart and health.

I share my thoughts as a spouse of a courageous husband that has fought depression our entire married life. I want to give context to how profoundly I am experiencing change, hope and health in my husband since beginning ketamine treatment at Ketamine Wellness Centers. He has gone from being in constant survival mode, to (and I can’t believe I’m actually saying this) enjoying life!  His mood swings are all but gone and he is interested in having experiences and fostering relationships. We are able to have a sincere partnership in our marriage. After seeing him drowning for so long, it is joyous to actually see him start to fly!  

There is still effort that is required and homework to be done.  He is learning to live instead of dying and we are learning together what that truly means for our relationship.  I will forever be grateful to the staff and the opportunity that ketamine therapy has allowed us. We could not have asked for a more kind, compassionate, or knowledgeable group to go through this journey with.  We know that it is vital to have the right setting and people around you as you go through this experience. We have no doubt that that the professionalism and hearts of the staff at Ketamine Wellness Centers is a huge part of why these treatments have been successful.  I am not exaggerating when I say that this treatment and staff have not only saved our marriage, but it saved my husband’s life. 

We would like to sincerely thank this family for allowing us to share their remarkable story with others.
