I thought his might be of interest to anyone who has a child that fits this category. The first link is an NPR article on George McCann who has benefited from use of ketamine and the second link is research on FOH conduced by Dr Papolos, who treated George.

As far back as he can remember, George McCann lived in fear. When he was asleep he would have horrific nightmares filled with violent images. When he was awake, he often felt threatened by people, including members of his own family. And when he felt threatened, he would become aggressive, even violent.

Ketamine is approved as an anesthetic. It's also a club drug that can cause out-of-body experiences. And research in the past few years shows that ketamine can lift severe depression, often in a matter of minutes.

Oh, how I wish I could afford to take my son to Dr. Papolos!
