Being depressed is exhausting.
That’s one of the cruelest ironies about mental health. When you’re in a dark place, everyone around you — all your friends and family — they just want to see you doing what you love again, being happy, being “the old you.”
Sometimes it feels like the world is looking at you saying things like, “Come on, man, just get over it. Don’t think like that. Just move on.”
But what people on the outside don’t always understand is that it takes all of your strength and willpower just to exist. Just to keep ongoing. Battling depression, battling anxiety, battling any mental health disorder… it’s all just so unbelievably exhausting.

Ketamine is a treatment option for patients with persistent cases of major depressive disorder, suicidal ideation, bipolar disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Developed more than 50 years ago for anesthesia during surgery, ketamine has more recently been found to be a valuable and highly effective treatment for these mental health diseases when patients have not responded to conventional therapy.
Living with fibromyalgia can be debilitating. Even after trying many different medications and therapies, you may still be suffering from widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain and spinal cord process painful and nonpainful signals. Ketamine Infusion Treatment has been shown to help with Fibromyalgia.
Despite the number of effective treatments available, still, some people experience what are called refractory migraines, or migraines that do not respond to standard treatments. Recent studies suggest that in the treatment of chronic migraines and other headache complexes, patients with refractory migraines who were given ketamine infusion therapy reported a significant decrease in pain on the VAS scale.
