Baton Rouge Sufferer Finds Depression Relief With Ketamine: A Testimony

Posted by Neuromend Team on Apr 12, 2019 6:24:47 PM

Below is the story of Michael, a NeuroMend patient, whose life was changed drastically after he began ketamine infusions to treat his treatment-resistant depression. Below is his powerful testimonial; a story worth retelling for depression sufferers everywhere−to let you know that there is hope. 

 

“Last week I completed my sixth ketamine infusion at Neuromend Infusion Therapy in Lafayette, La.  I have been struggling with depression off and on my entire life.  The 7th grade was the first time I remember feeling uncomfortable, on the outside and not a "part of".  I also experienced horrible stomach aches almost daily.  The doctors never found anything wrong with me physically so they chalked it up as stress. I was athletic, had plenty friends, and lacked nothing as a child.  There was no cause that I could see. It would get better for a couple years then I would relapse into another depression.  This happened in 7th grade, 10th grade, then again as a freshman in college and would continue for my entire life. In high school I started self-medicating with alcohol and other drugs.  Until that in itself became problematic.
