I am now 3 week after the SBG injection and feeling more relaxed each day. Another interesting thing I am keeping in my SGB diary is how the memories of the many traumas I had as a child are growing quickly dimmer, just like "regular" memories do. I imagine in my visualization of what is happening that the injection almost erased the deep imprint "embossing" of the events and converted them into a common event in my memory. I have contacted Dr. Lipov and my own doctor by mail this week, and am meeting today with the PTSD Center in New Haven CT as I am considering starting a fund or foundation to help others obtain this treatment as well. My pain doc is thrilled with my results and also confirms that the medicine has real logic and the procedure makes sense. Before the injection, I was easily startled and always anticipating another trigger event. I was restless and irritable. My general pain levels were more intense. Now I am peaceful and happy to "just be". I find fewer things to be concerned about or dislike, and I am already stopping most of my meds with no problems. I am sleeping like never before. My vision is to get this treatment to all Vets and any civilians who qualify. Even if the injection only helps for short stints of a few months at a time, I feel people can have an opportunity for cognitive breakthroughs not otherwise possible. I am positive now that although no substitute for real behavioral and cognitive "work", there is a biological and "mechanical" switch that those treatments cannot reach. After 25 years of every other available PTSD treatment, this injection has taken me to a place so much farther beyond other breakthroughs. We are all different, but if it can work for me, with a dozen complex traumas over 22 years, beginning the first day of my life, then I think there is great potential. Just like a broken bone, I believe that PTSD can at least partially be mended on a biological level.
