No prior authorization needed! #ketamine #PTSD #BipolarDisorder

Got approved for ketamine treatments 😁 insurance didn't even ask for prior authorization!!!! I start my 12 week course of treatment soon. I'm so shocked and so excited. And apparently have gone through eight antidepressants in my life. Simultaneously more and less than I thought LOL #Selfcare #MentalHealth

Treating myself well #Selfcare #ketamine

I finally did it. After tons of antidepressants that don't work, after a million treatment programs, after dedicating my life to myself, I stood up to my psychiatrist and told her I was going to try ketamine treatments. I'm done chasing symptoms and playing catch up.

#ketamine treatment

I have been on ketamine treatments for my depression. The side effects are awful. It does help pull me out of the depths but I still have suicidal ideations. Still go through the up and down and up and down. I was just wondering if anybody else does this treatment and how it has gone for you??

#Bipolar #MentalHealth #Anxiety #ADHD #PTSD #PostpartumDisorders #Cyclothymia Nighttime Brain Dump

My life is so stressful and chaotic. I personally suffer with #Cyclothymia #Bipolar #Anxiety #ADHD #PTSD #PostpartumDisorders #Adjustment Disorder with #attachmenttrauma
I also suffer from #Co -depenency
My current husband has #NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder
#BorderlinePersonalityDisorder .
My Mom has #Bipolar and My Dad has #Bipolar and #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder
I believe I was born as an Angel and a Child of God. I’m Christian. At 5 and 6 years old I was physically abused by my Uncle. At 14 years old, I had to pack my bags and be taken away from my Mom who was #Manic at the time. She has attempted suicide several times by pills. The last attempt was November 2023. My sister, was diagnosed with #BreastCancer November 2023. November is also my birthday month. My best friend, Ashley, died from a head on collision on the freeway from a Drunk Driver, on my birthday, at 19 years old.
I come from a long history of abuse and trauma. In High School, my Dad and Stepmom would lock up food and other essentials in their room. They withheld food from us. I have food scarcity issues to this day. On May 4, 2023 I found out that my Husband of 13 years had been cheating on me throughout our relationship and marriage. I got a Restraining Order for Emotional Abuse. My only child and I were in hiding for about 6 weeks until my court hearing that my husband filed for Emergency Custody Rights and Legal Separation. He filed in the paperwork that I was Unstable, not taking my medication, and supervised visits. He wanted to pay me zero spousal support and zero Child support. We settled out of court in June 2023, the day before the hearing. My husband was an #Alcohoic and #Addiction to bad behaviors. He lied, cheated, and spent money that was supposed to support the family. To say I’m devastated is an understatement.
My #MentalHealth is suffering because I am still in the same house, in the same bed, with my Husband.
How can I go on like this?
I’ve never been suicidal but I’m exhausted. I’m current seeing my Psychiatrist and Therapist for treatment. I’m even doing IV #ketamine Treatments.
I know I deserve better in so many ways. Any ideas or suggestions on how to move on from here? I’m suffering even though I know I deserve a life that is better. 🙏

Tired of fighting and exhausted all treatments with my TRD, treatment resistant depression

#TRD #Depression #ketamine #ketamine #TMS #Depression

I have TRD treatment-resistant depression for over 20 years. I used to always exercise out of it through many episodes of it.

this time I could not exercise anymore and have done ketamine, TMS. Ketamine had worked fine for the last 2 episodes and not worked in my current 8 month one.

also if I stay awake the whole night the second day I will be ok, significantly out of TRD.

so I know there is something wrong with my brain.

Just keen on finding the right ways to correct it but not on my own exercise program, which is very hard that requires strong determination and motivation. Also I do not find going out or exercising make me feel good anymore.

since I am not working hard on my own to get out of this TRD. I can’t help myself and nobody else can. Everyone shuns me at this port. I don’t feel that I have any relationships in this world.

I basically stuck and make no progress towards recovery. I am just tired of fighting.
