It is important to understand: Depression isn’t a weakness. It is a matter of brain chemistry.
Maybe things in life are going pretty well, but there’s still this sense of dread, a disinterest in things, or an overall gloomy feeling that makes life seem not worth living. However, your depression originates, when it lasts for weeks or months it is time to seek help. Untreated depression can lead to physical problems with sleep, appetite, energy, and concentration which add to the trouble. The whole body, mind, and spirit start to feel defeated.
There may come a day when a simple thought of suicide appears. Hopefully, you push that thought out of your mind. But it returns…and multiplies. You might even start thinking of ways you could end your life, whether it would be painful or not, what methods might be effective—or not. What then? Maybe you care for others and that complicates everything. Or maybe you feel you’ve become a burden to others, like there’s just no reason to keep going. These are lies, and they are dangerous. Your life hangs in the balance of what you decide to do with these lies.
The more traditional drugs for treating depression may necessitate a period of weeks up to months to determine effectiveness. When people have experienced stress and depression for a long time, the connection between neurons begins to be lost. Ketamine helps the process of regeneration of neurons more quickly, which leads to normal brain functioning. That alone makes Ketamine one of the best drugs for those dealing with Treatment Resistant Depression. In general, the diagnosis of Treatment Resistant Depression is someone that has tried at least two different types of antidepressant medication without any improvement. Approximately 4 million American adults have Treatment Resistant Depression. For them Ketamine may be the only medication that can provide relief.
Ketamine is a therapy that works when others have failed, which can give patients renewed hope and the motivation to get better. It is highly effective for the person who may be caught up in a storm of depression and suicidal thoughts, allowing a reprieve for a few weeks, a month, or maybe longer. During this time, the patient can use other adjunctive therapies, counseling, and perhaps return to work or school. It is the chance to get started in the right direction toward healing. To talk to friends and family again, go to the gym, enjoy hobbies like before. Simply stated: Start Living Again.
