A REALLY GOOD DAY: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference

AYELET WALDMAN    Book Number: 85633    Product format: Paperback

When a small vial purporting to be from "Lewis Carroll" came through her letterbox, Ayelet Waldman was at a really low ebb. A long-term sufferer from bipolar II disorder, the severity of her mood swings had become intolerable for her, her husband and her children and every medication tried so far had not made any difference, so she was ready to try anything. She opened the vial, placed two drops of the liquid it contained on her tongue and in so doing joined the ranks of an underground but increasingly vocal group of scientists and civilians successfully using therapeutic microdoses of LSD. Here she charts her experiences over a month - physical sensations, mood, conflicts, sleep, work and pain (from a long-standing shoulder injury) - demonstrating the almost entirely beneficial effects of the drug. A "microdose" is here defined as a dose dilute enough to elicit no adverse side effects but high enough to produce a measurable cellular response, here roughly one tenth of what a recreational LSD user would take. As she takes us through her month, she explores the history and mythology of LSD, the cutting-edge research into the drug and its effects and the byzantine laws that control its use in a narrative that is enthralling, enlightening and frequently hilarious. Forget everything you have been told about "acid" - the truth is much more interesting! 229pp paperback.
