That's good to know. I probably would never have considered reading it if it wasn't for his untimely death. Now I'm curious to know what his thought processes were. He had so much going for him it's sad that this happened.

I listened to part of the audiobook on youtube. Pretty crazy, the stuff I heard, but it was an interesting perspective.. I really didn't know how much of an addict he was. R.I.P.

Ketamine is “generally really safe,” said Dr. Michael Bottros, chief of clinical operations and medical director for pain services with Keck Medicine of USC.

Side effects such as dissociation aren’t as worrisome in a medical setting when ketamine is infused, because “healthcare professionals will be ensuring that patients are not moving around unsupervised.”

But Bottros said that based on the autopsy findings, which indicated ketamine was found in his stomach, Perry may have taken ketamine orally, and the risk is that “there was too much taken at once.” The physician cautioned that he did not know what the prescription dose for Perry was, but “the level in his blood is higher than it would be” for what is considered an “appropriate” oral dose.

And “the problem here is that he was in a hot tub,” Bottros said. In a dissociated state, he said, someone could sink into a tub without realizing it.

perry was obviously and admittedly clinically depressed for decades. he used alcohol and drugs to try to self medicate most of his life. he tried dozens and dozens of times to get professional help for his depression and to stop the drug use. the man tried so many times and was a very strong person to never give up the hope of being cured of his mental anguish.

tragically, the brain disease of depression killed him.

i feel very sorry for perry. his malfunctioning brain chemistry wasn't his fault....

Everything points to at-home use - the amount in his body, ketamine-unfriendly sporting activity prior - but the drug wasn't found there. Maybe police were sloppy, since it's probably seldom kept in homes, rarely kills, and usage isn't a felony.
