The Nation Weekly: November 4, 2022 Hope in ketamine therapy, vote Working Families Party, undocumented literature, and more

While Ellen Meyers struggled with the grief of losing her father and husband, losing her only child to an accidental drug overdose incited a new kind of internal turmoil: “I found myself obsessively trying to undo all I had ever done, desperate to create a different outcome.”

But Meyers has found a way to see the light at the end of the tunnel — through ketamine therapy, which a psychiatrist administers for several hours at a time. The drug has allowed Meyers to feel the weight of her loss a little less now. She’s discovered a new way to find hope.
