Day 4. This is actually the hardest day. One more day that you have to get up and go through everything all over again. Doesn't sound like it should be as hard as it is but trust 4 is hard.

Celebrating the last of all the doc appointments and blood work with froyo~ lol, I should be good for 3 months. >:3 Though evidently the infusion clinic already lost an RN they hired. At least I have some time to make backup plans in case they still don't have a hire by September. :x #ketamine #ketamineinfusions #occipitalneuralgia #guillainbarrerecovery

I've always been honest with my friends and followers about my Trigeminal Neuralgia and if you'd like to know more about the next step in my treatment, I have the information about getting #ketamineinfusions on my #gofundme site: https://www.gofundme.com/242mum4

I'm not soliciting donations from my followers 😋, I'd really just like you to take a moment and read my story...and then maybe Google & read about Trigeminal Neuralgia! It can be your #gooddeedoftheday ! ❤️xoxo Sarah❤️ P.S. My Blue Zucchini is going to have some big changes (for the better) soon! I'm so excited, y'all!

It's ironic that I've been listening to his music every day for the past 6 months... creative, talented people seem to be more at risk for suicide bc their minds never turn off. I wish he would have known about Ketamine infusions....It would have saved his life ! #RIP #chesterbennington

Almost half way through. Woman to my right, also getting ketamine, snoring like crazy. Guy to my left, post op, keeps talking about how much he wants kool aid. In my medicated haze I find this amusing. I'm sure I'll regret this picture lol. #ketamineinfusions #loopy #silly #snapchat #shameless #probablypoorjudgement

My File got so big they had to split it up!! Second or third volume! First day of infusions!

It's Wednesday🌻For me, Wednesday is the start of the week. Why? Because that's the day I get my pain prescriptions filled. Pain management and pain medications have HUGE stigma and shame associated with them. Particularly for women. If a man needs them? The pain must be terrible. He has pushed through as much as he can, but the pain is too much. For women? We're too sensitive. We're not trying hard enough. We're giving up. We're hysterical. I live at the severe end of the spectrum of chronic pain, due to Marfan Syndrome. On July 18th, I'll be getting a neurostimulator into my spinal cord to try and reduce my pain and give me some quality of life. I have exhausted all other options. So for now, high doses of daily morphine is my only option. Despite being prescribed by an Anaesthetist, I still encounter a hell of a lot of stigma and shaming. From pharmacists. Fill in doctors at the GP. Family or friends. Nurses who don't know me. And sometimes the worst culprits? Other people with chronic pain. They say to me 'well, have you tried CBD/low dose naltrexone/paracetamol/wxyz?'. And then they follow it up with 'I choose not to take pain drugs'. Here's a life pro tip; it's not a choice. Once you have a certain level of pain, and have exhausted or are already using all other options, it's not a choice. It's either pain meds, or self euthanasia. If you are able to make a choice, it means your pain is not so severe that you have no other options. That's the reality. Wednesday is my Monday. Because the week resets. I'm able to reflect on what helped during the week, and what didn't. On the days I used more pain meds, I can reflect on why, and work out how to try things differently this week. I'm done with feeing ashamed, I'm done with the stigma, I'm done with being told its a choice. Yes, many people do suffer with pain medication addiction (totally debilitating and no judgment on them. It's a disease no different to mine & a hell of a battle).But many of us out there do not. We require pan medications to survive and live, no differently to people with CF needing oxygen, or people with Cancer needing chemo.For many of us, pain medication is life saving🌻Respect that🌻

Self portrait sketch from yesterday during my first ketamine infusion for my EDS. I really hate the feeling I get from prescription pain meds but sometimes they are needed. I am having less pain but I'm still too fatigued from the medication to do much of anything. 😷😷 Getting lots of rest and staying optimistic that I will be ready to travel Friday! ❤️❤️

Post-ketamine selfie, because I forgot to ask my ketamine buddy to take one in situ. #ketamineinfusions #ketamineismedicine #ketaminefordepression #ketamineforptsd #depression #ptsd #newyorkketamineinfusions
