Hello. My name is Elektra. I am a single Mom. I have raised my son on my own from the time he was 4 years old. His father abandoned him and hasn't been heard from since. All of that time I have been just a mom. I don't feel like I have had my own identity. I recently decided that I want to start living for me. All this time I have had someone so dependent on me that I lost myself. Now he is a teenager. So here I am finding out who I really am. I am discovering new things about myself. Some have been pretty surprising. I hope that you will follow along with me as I figure things out.
This originally started out as a tweet after I became upset after searching for Therapy for myself. I suffer from PTSD, Panic Disorder, and a Mood Disorder. Last fall I went off of the 4 different medications I was on because I could not function. I was a zombie all the time and had no quality of life. Because I am no longer on those medications I struggle every day. Especially during times like these when my PTSD is triggered by the current events. I made a promise to someone that I would get help. Today I was looking into therapy. One therapy I am particularly interested in is Ketamine Therapy. Ketamine Treatment can save lives. Especially for individuals like me who are medication-resistant. I have tried every medicine currently available for my disorders. None of them made the soul-crushing depression go away. The side effects outweighed the benefits which is why I was advised to detox from them. I went through three long months of withdrawals after being on one of the medications
