Author Ayelet Waldman shares her personal experiment of micro-dosing with LSD

 

Ayelet Waldman is a mother of teenagers, a former federal public defender, and a writer living with mood disorders who discovers an underground culture of clinicians advocating for the therapeutic use of LSD.  Having exhausted virtually every other medical option for her condition, she makes contact with researcher James Fadiman and supplier "Lewis Carroll," and the outcome is told in her book A Really Good Day: HowMicrodosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life.

In stories that are equal parts eye-opening and laugh-out-loud funny, Waldman recounts her monthlong experiment in microdosing, which results in bursts of productivity, sleepless nights, a newfound sense of equanimity, and profound changes in her relationships.  Along the way, she also explores the history and mythology of LSD, and calls on her experience as an attorney to criticize our society's baffling drug policies and biased prosecutions.
