NIMH – Winter 2015

So, my email inbox is a pretty busy place. What I find most informative, I share. I’m NOT an expert; I’m NOT a medical doctor or scientist or affiliated in any way with the NIMH; I’m simply on a few mailing lists. So, for the research scientists out there (none of whom read my blog, I’m sure, anyway…) here is another informative email I received Tuesday the 9th:

    Interesting I should look at my email and see that you have posted this summary of NIMH activity. Someone else sent me an extensive and comprehensive article about new research into the transformative powers of psilocybin in the context of psychotherapy. Shades of the ’60’s, with much more sophisticated methods, including dynamic brain imaging. Amazing. NIDA and NIMH scientists are working with investigators worldwide on this. It’s especially amazing in dying people, who seem to universally meet their deaths while on their trips, and come back feeling serene and accepting, even joyous about the new part of life they are about to embark on. The fear and anxiety is gone. I really hope this becomes mainstream!

      I recall seeing a television show recently in which research grade psilocybin was used to help someone accept their impending death. That’s fairly mainstream.

        Hmmm, I had not heard of it till now. Wonder where one gets lab grade sillycybin, as we used to call it. One of my old boyfriends and I had a shroom farm. It was very much fun!

          I only took shrooms three times. The last time I was 19 or 20, freaked out, and called my parents to come get me. I did smoke pot when in my 20s. I believe I was self-medicating, for I found it a relief to be stupid and slow.
