For a second I thought you wrote "Swiss muffins ".

I remember ketamine being used on House in a few episodes to try and cure his leg pain. It ultimately failed.

I wish we had better pain and mental health research. It often seems so half-way. But I know research is never easy.

They do give ketamine to kids now for a sort of anesthesia. When my niece Sophie needed stitches in her chin after a sledding incident they did that- it just sort of confuses them so much that they don't realize there is pain. Afterwards she asked her Mom "Mommy, am I on an airplane?

I guess that the troubling thing is the underlying idea that mental illness is a matter of perspective.

"Mommy, am I on an airplane?"
Whee! Can I have those drugs? ;-p (Actually, I need drugs to make me pretend I'm *not* on an airplane when I *am*.)

I've heard that idea about mental illness. It kinda confuses, me. But then, I'm no scientist or doctor.
