I love the world in my imagination. If I didn’t close my eyes, I wouldn’t get to go on the vacation. How do you all feel about this? Do any of you do your infusions, and keep your eyes open?
Always closed for me…
I kept them open once for the entire infusion, just to evaluate the entire experience…that was the second or third infusion, I think. As I recall it was the fourth infusion that I couldn’t really tell if they were open or not. That was kinda crazy.
I close my eyes to get the full experience of going deeper into my subconscious thoughts or what I believe to be a problem solving part of my brain uninterrupted.
I actually wear an eye mask to ensure a internal journey. Of course about two times a session I lift the mask and make sure I’m still in the room…you know what I mean?
I BET…I’d like that dosage!!!
Thank you! I’m still trying to find my way around.
I like the eye mask idea! You can always open your eyes if you need to. It is definitely way better with your eyes closed. Thank you all for responding! I tell folks that ketamine is not scary because you can open your eyes if needed.
I have always kept my eyes open. Maybe I’ll try closing them
I think it will be a more enjoyable and visual experience for you. I really get to see some amazing things during my infusions. The imagination is a wonderful place.
Welcome to the group. There are a bunch of supportive people here. Anything we can do to help each other is cool! Peace!
Always open for me. I like to watch the visuals. Also, I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep if I close my eyes and these sessions cost too much to waste.
Interesting. I have only fallen asleep one time. I definitely agree that you want to be awake and enjoy the experience!
Interesting. I can’t imagine falling asleep during an infusion. Except for one time where I made a point of keeping my eyes open for the entire infusion, I keep them closed to prevent external reality from impinging on the inner screen. Different strokes, as the saying goes.
Imagination is where I want to be! I feel asleep because I have insomnia. Was super tired from no sleep.
I feel really strange asking this, but is anyone seeing my comments? And on closing your eyes always! I fall asleep after usually but never during. I’m afraid to miss something amazing.
Kim, there really is very little activity here most days. There are a few regulars that read and post pretty frequently, but your posts are seen and read. I could never fall asleep in the midst of an infusion. Ever.
Thank you! My brain is too active to fall asleep.
I see your comments Kim! Big hugs!
