Thank you for all of your replies. They mean so much to me. Yes the trip was wonderful and it felt so good to laugh and smile and be happy for a change, even with a headache of 8/10.
But now the fun is over and I must start my cycle of Ketamine. I am scared, I wish I could be stronger than what I am. I just can't sleep, it's been a few weeks now. I must find out if there is something else I can do.
Please be there with me as I need you all badly!!! I will have my laptop this time so I will be able to keep in touch.
Hope you are catching more shut eye than I am and I will see you in the morning.
