I walked into Dr. Kaplan's office 10 months ago completely broken mentally, physically, spiritually, etc. Dr. Kaplan was yet another stop along my road searching for an answer to Treatment Resistant Depression and Anxiety that I have suffered with for well over 35 years. I've been on every prescription medicine available, in house treatment, group therapy etc. Dr. Kaplan, his beautiful staff and partner therapists, suggested Ketamine Treatment coupled with extensive therapy. I had nothing to lose. Why not give it a shot? So there I went; into an unknown treatment, trusted Dr. Kaplan and staff and put my hopes into their hands. 10 moths later? Read below.
At 53, I'm discovering a life that I never had, or quite frankly, that I lost in my youth. I have energy, I smile, I confront my fears, I actually leave the house and do fun things, I'm a better husband, father, son and brother. I feel like I'm living a dream most days yet the dream is slowly becoming my normal and evolves each day for the better. It's hard for me and my loved ones to comprehend the drastic change but we are all so very thankful. Yes, I still struggle mightily and probably always will but that's ok. I can handle it. If I can't, I call my "team" and guess what? The fog lifts, one foot goes in front of the other and I move forward, not backward. I can handle bad days, enjoy my good days, experience marvelous days and give thanks for Dr. Kaplan and staff. You showed me the way to save my life! I'm forever in your debt.
