Thoughts on Ketamine Day 2

Overall, yesterday's infusion went extremely well. The exciting news of the day was that my pain threshholds had almost doubled! This means it takes double the pressure to cause my leg pain. The swelling has decreased, but it's hard to know if that's because I've been in a bed so much.


I did have some weird feelings. I saw a kaleidoscope of colors at times. I also felt like I was in an airplane and like things were vibrating around me.

We learned that relaxing music actually doesn't help, faster music or commedy worked better for me both in terms of enjoyment and breathing. My oxygen saturations were better with those types of music.

My blood pressure behaved itself, though it was higher than I prefer. Overall, though, it's been safe, even though it's not easy.
