Dr. Ghorieshi and nurse Noelle, through their compassion and ketamine I.v. injection treatments transformed my life. The first day I began treatment, I was suicidal to the point of life threatening, and I'd been feeling that way consistently for a decade minimum. I hadn't even realized how ill I was, because I had normalized my condition. Nothing! nothing at all, in terms of medication (which I had been on for 22 years), ever improved my condition. The side effects were horrifying, and I believe they actually made me more inclined to take my own life. I could barely get out of my bed, my body and mind were shut down. With the help of Dr. Ghorieshi and Noelle, I regularly laugh & smile after many, endless years of profound grief. My sense of humor, wit, confidence, ability to socialize (as opposed to isolate & withdraw) has returned. Now I assert myself, rather than submit to others preferences that had often made me uncomfortable. My body is experiencing sensations, that I have not known since my youth. I'm not perpetually living in extreme fear & dread. My hair is healthier and more full than it's been in years. Bottom line: as one who suffered from treatment resistant depression for most of my life, ketamine has liberated me from the shackles of despair and the inevitability of suicide. Ketamine is a miracle. My heartfelt gratitude to Linda, Dr. Ghorieshi, and Noelle.
