Not long before I was first seen at Ketamine Wellness Centers, I’d been suicidal. My depression had lasted twenty odd years, with no relief, even after trying too many antidepressant drugs to mention and a number of other treatments including but not limited to a horrible session of electro convulsive therapy, or ECT. I remember vividly the first day that I went to KWC. I felt hopeless, and was crying during much of my first visit. I was unsure if I could last even a weekend without help. And, after so many ineffective treatments, I had little hope for even this one. However, within hours of my first infusion, the feelings of sorrow and hopelessness lifted, and, within days, I felt normal again for the first time in more than 20 years. I remember thinking, wow, this is what it feels like to be “normal.” I’ve been able to do so much with my life now that I could not do before because depression prevented me from moving forward. I can’t even imagine what I would have accomplished had I had ketamine long ago.
With continued maintenance treatments, I’ve been able to stave off depression for more than two years now. To me, after decades of suffering and tens of thousands of dollars spent on medications and treatments that did little to nothing, ketamine was a miracle. And the people at Ketamine Wellness Centers are amazing. They are nurturing, understanding, and professional. I would recommend ketamine to anyone who has suffered from treatment resistant depression, including anxiety and PTSD. I can honestly say they saved my life.
