Now for most people you don’t know what Ketamine is, why it is infused or what the heck is Ketamine Club.  I am happy for you, if you are not a member of Ketamine Club that means you don’t have chronic pain and have not reached the the point that high doses of Ketamine be infused into your body and/or take it orally between infusions to help control your choric pain.  I use Ketamine oral therapy and monthly infusions that are 4 hours a day for 4 days every 30 days.  My monthly infusion began on Monday this week and ends today at 5pm.  I am still a bit out of it from it, but I am at the very tired stage right now.  This month I have afternoon infusions that start at 1pm and end at 5pm.  You can read more about Ketamine Infusions on RSDHope’s website.  There are various ways to do the infusions and therapy, I already shared which type of ourpatient infusions I get.  I can’t wait for this to end and to start rejoining society again.  I know I need these infusions to function better through out the month with the joint benefit of daily oral Ketamine therapy 3 to 4 times a day depending on the amount of pain I am in.  This week of very difficult infusions make each month and my other medications work better to control the symoptoms that can also be found on RSD Hope’s web site, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, or the Mayo Clinic.  I am going to go back to following First Rule of Ketamine Club and go to bed and come back Friday night or Saturday when I am fully clear of the Ketamine infusion’s affects and more clear headed.  I suggest anyone interested in Invisible Illnesses/Disablities or Spoon Theory (the description of what is is like to have a chronic illness that may/may not be invisable) on the But You Don’t Look Sick

    • Thank you Kate, I also will be sending you good and healing thoughts along with prayers for your well being. I read your about section and I pray that as you deal with things in your life you are surrounded by positivity. I am sorry that you are a member of the Invisible Illness club, a club I don’t wish upon my worst enemy, and hope that as you raise awareness you are uplifted by the lives you touch. You have truly touched my already.

      • Hi Andrea,

        Thank you, you have such a sweet soul, so sorry you can relate to my suffering.

        I strongly suspected that we might like each other just by your nickname and no more information. My private DID blog is Kate@DragonWarrior, so I guess that gives you an idea of why I thought we might have some things in common.

        Again, good and healing thoughts to you.

        Kate
