Just a quick update about something I've written about in the past.
I sought out the help of ketamine when I was rejected from doing more ECT due to memory loss. It seemed the only thing to try other that Deep Brain Stimulation -- and I don't want brain surgery.
I had about 20 treatments (by comparison I've had 32 ECTs), and the help it gave seemed to diminish with time. At first my response was great.
It seemed to help with my psychotic symptoms too.
Ultimately though, I had a treatment on Tuesday, and by Thursday I was in the Emergency Room with severe agitation and hearing voices.
It's been a good run, but it's over now.
I think it's fair to say that I was never addicted, as some patients must become. I'm sad it's no longer a help, but it's an easy goodbye.
So there will be no more ketamine stories.
