Hi Scott,

I hope you are doing well. I am having severe problems with my current regiment. Sleeping problems, and loss of effect of stimulant. With sleep, I have severe PTSD (which I was officially diagnosed with 5 years ago) related to grief. The "existential" psychiatric problems that are hard to cure. (NO current antidepressant treats grief effectively.) But, psychedelics have been shown to reduce symptoms in grief, as well as depression associated with terminal illness. That is where I am at.....except no terminal illness.

Psilocybin (mushrooms) is/are widely available here in Canada. Just try a web search with Canada in there and you will get many sites. However, I wouldn't even think about trying to order them from America. But, maybe a nice trip up to friendly Canada might be a good idea? Or, go to the states where mushrooms are legal? Hmmm...sorry I have no easy answer. But, IMHO, worth the effort (and there is the legal risk, I know.) Also, psychiatrist Peter Kramer states, if you can go better than just "remission", go for it...more or less.

Best,
Jay
