    I can't explain it all very well but it felt like all of fears, anxieties and all of the complexities of my own experience kinda washed away.

    You recreate the incidents easily like it is real and then during that time ...I felt better after the trip.

    The medication was in water and I was given it to mix.

    There was a shit ton of paperwork and medical release I had to sign also before the day.

    I was also asked to each a normal meal and something simple.

    I can't explain it...but the best way is like in my mind..I was given the opportunity to feel comfortable with my choices and learning to live with it.

    It felt like multiple conversations with myself that was asked and answered.

    Your brain knows how to fix itself if all of its inhibitions was taken care of.

    I felt it worked....

    I have heard others had a bad trip and they had to be sedated but overall, I would do it again.

    I don't like visiting the OHSU and I really didn't like visiting their main clinical trials facility. Sometimes they drew my blood and then forgotten about it and then drew my blood again to days later.

    Also, other patients are there for other reasons including many many children.

    But I wanted to try something new for my trauma and injuries and it seemed to have worked well.

    Tldr....it felt like closing a chapter in my life and having to accept it with no issues.
    That's how it felt.

    One of these days... These are on my list once my kid is out of the house.
    My dad died, and my grandfather died, and my great-grandfather died. And the guy before him, I don't know. Probably died.

    I'd give my left nut if I could get my dad to drop some damn mushrooms. He is pushing 80 years old, USMC Vietnam grunt and that ****ing war has been living in his head too long.

    My dad had huge issues with PTSD and being wounded in Vietnam. Finally got him to go to the VA and get some help. Therapy made such a huge difference (and some medication). He’s a much easier person to be around. Heck, he even got married after being single for the last 40 years.

    Your not getting the gist of what I was saying.

    I felt bad and pretty guilty as sin being there when there are children with serious diseases and are undergoing chemo and other treatments for far serious issues than my little mental head issues. I felt bad because of that.

    I believe in peace, love and extremely violent weapons systems... just in case that whole peace-and-love thing doesn't work out.

    That is because you are the type of person who puts the concern of others above your own. What your not seeing is without you and the sacrifices made by men and women like you, make this country a place where children can receive the proper care regardless.
