Woman Says LSD Saved Her Marriage And Her Life

The Far Out Truth

The Far Out Truth

When we think of LSD, we either think that it's that drug that made classic music by famous musicians from the 60s and 70s that we were always too scared to try, or we simply think of tripping balls. But we don't think of it as therapeutic, or that it would ever be a tool for saving a marriage and a life.

Author, Ayelet Waldman, 52, sees things differently.

She took to "microdosing" with LSD by taking about one-tenth of the potency of what would normally be used by acid trippers to find that psychedelic, colorful trip, every third day. She didn't hallucinate. Instead, she found a happiness that saved her life.

“For the first time in so long, I feel happy,” she writes in her new book, A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage and My Life.

“Not giddy or out control, just at ease with myself and the world. When I think about my husband and my children, I feel a gentle sense of love and security. I am not anxious for them or annoyed with them. When I think of my work, I feel optimistic, brimming with ideas, yet not spilling over.”

The author goes on to describe the positive effect that this mood management has had on her life, and as we mentioned, even going as far as saving it!

She isn't the only person to have experimented in such a way. In fact, there are studies, here and there, all over the world which are looking in the benefits.

According to various sources, this practice of "microdosing" does not result in a skewed perception of reality like the stigma attached to it might have us believe, but by taking a non-psychoactive dose, the user may experience improved cognitive function, emotional stability, and creativity.

The advocates suggest that the positive effects even help someone become more present and focused.

At present, there is very little study in to the area and that is the problem for those in the LSD camp at the moment. Perhaps through the prompting of books such as Waldman's, more legitimate research in to the area might result.
