So my psychiatrist was more receptive to the ketamine idea than I expected. She didn't help much but she basically said "well it works for some people. I don't prescribe it but I can look around for someone who does if you want." I told her I had already found a couple clinics here but was nervous about calling them and she basically just moved onto a different topic and later said I should keep looking into it.

Then my usual pharmacy didn't have one of the medications for one of the prescriptions she gave me so I had to go to one in a nearby grocery store. Where I saw this:


(on the right: for all the people who want 3 different flavors of plain! They also have a chocolate version which has milk, dark, and... chocolate chocolate. That's really what it says.)

Last night my band-aid fell off and here's what my finger looks like now:


Not actually too bad. I almost cut the tip off but it looks like it'll be fine. I'm pretty sure I actually did cut off the flesh part of a fingertip once and it grew back fine. So I didn't put another band-aid on. But then in the grocery store I bumped it into something and it started bleeding again. A lot. So I spent half an hour walking around the grocery store, bleeding, and discreetly sucking on my finger to keep from bleeding over everything. By the time I got home I was fairly lightheaded. How much blood can you lose before it becomes a problem? 15 gallons? That sounds right.

Ouch, your finger looks painful.

Last time we were discussing ketamine in a journal, I mentioned it's so expensive and rarely covered by insurance. It's about 2 to 6 thousand dollars per treatment cycle and you have to keep repeating cycles.

I hope insurance starts covering it!!

I was reading that aerosol ketamine is slightlt cheaper, but still not affordable and doesn't work as well.

Idk how much spare $$$ you have.

Yeah the main thing I need to figure out if my insurance will cover it. The clinics I've found say on their websites that most insurance will cover it but I'm not optimistic because it was really f*cking hard to get mine to cover my ECT treatments because they claimed I needed to have prior authorization even tho their website specifically said I didn't. It usually took 3 or 4 months before they finally would pay the doctors, and once it took so long bill collectors started calling me everyday.

My older son loves triple vanilla...

I almost bought it just to see how differently they tasted from each other. I've always been annoyed that there are like 5 or 6 flavors for vanilla that basically taste the same, all pretty much terrible outside of milkshakes and floats, and usually only 1 or 2 ice cream flavors that actually look decent. And I'm ignoring all the 'frozen dairy dessert' nonsense.

I'm ignoring the right side and looking at the left. I'm not sure about just plain cinnamon ice cream (sounds overwhelming), but a combo of cake batter/vanilla/cinnamon sounds fantastic, actually.

I am fine with one vanilla only. It's a fine flavor but I'm no connoisseur.
Three different chocolates sound good though. I could dig the differences.

Ooooh, how about triple coffee flavor with little dark chocolate chips in it. Or am I the only one who'd buy it?

You mean like this one:

I'm into it. Coffee, French Vanilla, Cappucino, with dark chocolate chips, and made with ground espresso beans so it's caffeinated and just that much bitter.

It's 'Coffee ice cream with caramel swirl, Chocolate ice cream, and Caramel ice cream with chocolate crunchies.'

Also I think something is wrong with my nutrition app:

I never have enough iron so this would have been perfect. But I guess it probably doesn't count if it came out of you to begin with.

They are definitely on the right track. A little more coffee and chocolate and i think they got it

Caramel is unnecessary, and just a way of getting people who don't like coffee to drink coffee-based drinks.

This is probably my favorite non-mango ice cream.

And I usually hate coffee.

Your nutrition app is broken. I don't see beer or pizza there.

This literally works, btw. My sister is in her mid-30s, and has hated coffee all her life. She gradually cut out the sugary bits of the fancy frapps she'd get as an occasional treat, and her husband finally got her a coffeemaker for Valentine's Day this year.

Then just don't eat that part. It can be like the strawberry part of Neapolitan ice cream. No one likes it. No one wants it there. But it's always there. Or like those assorted chocolates things with 1/3 white 'chocolate'. I've never met anyone who liked white 'chocolate'.

Should that be coming up when I search for 'human blood'? Have I been making my pizza all wrong?

There you go! Yum!

Hehe, i was actually responding to the ice cream but that order is more amusing

How about cow blood candy bars?

I like the taste of white chocolate candies. Somehow the ice cream doesn't work for me. My brain refuses to believe it is supposed to taste chocolatey so it tastes like generic sweetness.

White chocolate is not chocolate. "Generic sweetness" pretty much covers it, really.

Also, it's an absolute bitch to mess with when making candy and I don't know why anyone would do that. I did it one time, for the look. Never again. That sh*t burns so easily.
