The Wild Wild West of Mood Shifts
Updated: Sep 3, 2019
Treatment Resistant Depression is a bitch. It has been 8 days since my last treatment. I can honestly say that I have had 7 days of stability. And today, the 8th day, has felt only the mildest of the Wild Wild West brain back. I haven’t felt any form of stability since February when I had 3 glorious weeks of it. Prior to those weeks, I couldn’t tell you the last time if/when I experienced it. My sleep has also been on track with at least 6 hours of sleep a night. Thank God. There’s nothing that has the power to send my mood to the bottom of the abyss like sleep does.
Anyways, I am very happy with the results. The mood shift isn't earth shattering but it's enough. Imagine that you have the blinds closed. This is like opening them up a little bit. I can’t say that I have really found any side effects. Even the experience itself isn’t bad. Personally, I don’t really notice much at, other than one time. Sometimes I feel as though I have a more detailed memory, but that’s about it. It’s pretty smooth sailing (sorry to those looking for the good trip). I am anxious to see if my sleep will stay consistent and if my mood will remain at a relatively manageable level until my next treatment on Monday.
