On Saturday I broke down and got ahold of psychedelics after reading for years that they are showing to be incredibly helpful with treatment resistant depression. I wasn’t doing it for the trip, I was doing it for the relief. The trip was cool, but the following day I woke up feeling like an entirely different person. Like the depression was completely gone. No anti-depressant had ever worked so intensly. The studies generally showed people feeling pretty damn good up through at least three weeks before needing another dose to mitigate the returning depression. Imagine my shock when not three days after, I was right back to where I was before, if not worsr because the relief made me forget how much it actually hurt.
Now I’m really scared. It makes me feel like there is something really, seriously wrong with my brain if I barely got three days of relief before falling back into the pit. My question is who has worked with these before, and what do you recommend? I have tried so many different medications and can’t afford anymore psychiatrist visits to talk to my Dr about this and get her thoughts.
