KBlends Dictionary

10 Foot Pole

A tool to free me from the help of others. If I can keep my distance, people will quit trying to help me. I am better suffering alone without the stress of trying to pretend to be better for everyone else.

At KBlend you will never be told that you do not want it bad enough. Most of our patients make us their last call, which means we will take you no matter how close you are to the end of the rope or the "date." Many of our patients have come in to celebrate the "date" as if it's their new birthday since being transformed by the KBlend.


The point where someone realizes they are no longer able to alter or control their behavior. Commonly thought to be related to substance abuse, but more commonly related to the depression and anxiety that results when one attempts to alter their behavior.

treatment protocols for depression and anxiety are eerily similar to those used for patients that suffered from drug and substance abuse. Effective treatments must include altering behavior.


A former condition that required days or weeks of mental preparation, just to complete simple tasks. The only way to complete with my struggle is to become apathetic, if I just do not care then the problem does not have to haunt me.


The result of the help of others. Prayer and fasting works for everyone else, but it just doesn't work for me. I ask God to help, but there is no help for me. The guilt that I wasted the efforts of others who tried to help.

Friends and family compound and drive depression symptoms deeper when they expect someone to "snap out of it."
We would never say hurtful things to a cancer patient. With a cancer diagnosis the first thought is, "can the doctor cut it out?" But with depression we expect our friends and family to snap out of it or hit rock bottom.

Dishonest Mercy

The art of withholding the truth to protect others. There is no point in telling the truth about my symptoms if they are not fixable and I can hide them.

Example: After the first few treatments patients become much more honest about just how bad their depression and anxiety symptoms were before treatment. Once someone realizes the KBlend is working, there is a sense of excitement and a desire to share the discovery. A sense of urgency sets in as they consider others who just need to hear about this breakthrough treatment.

In fact, most patients are waiving HIPPA privacy protections as they urgently try to reach others. If you want to connect with someone who has overcome anxiety and depression, Call KBlend at 734-605-8500.

Hostage Situation

The day I realized I could not escape my addiction, depression, and anxiety. There may have been a time where I thought I could control my situation, but that was long ago, before I attempted escape. The tangled maze in my head became more than I can control.

Magic Eraser

Tool I use to pretend to be okay. The mask I wear on my face to hide the tears and despair. The tone I use in my voice to hide the pain and regret. The clothes I wear to keep up in fashion with those sitting next to me...

That's right, I am fine.

Medication Merry-Go-Round

This medication didn't work but surely if I try a stronger dose, or maybe I need to take this one too so I can manage this side effect. Maybe I really have this diagnosis and need to take this new medication that came out. Surely there is something out there that will eventually work. I just have to keep trying new pills and suffering their side effects until I find the right one!


The get out of jail free card, ready and waiting when I cannot handle being a hostage any longer. It was a backup if the KBlend didn't work. I figured I had time to try and KBlend before my "date".

Psych Ward

A constant threat to being honest about my depression. If I let someone know what I am suffering with they will try to fix me, eventually they will try to commit me to some worthless program.

Rock Bottom

The mythological point where someday I want to get better bad enough to overcome the thoughts in my head.

A loss of control - life in my head before KBlend

Untreated depression may lead to a sense of spiraling out of control. Upon first calling the clinic it is not uncommon for callers to express a sense of quickly moving to a place beyond recovery.


Once thought to be the only way to escape. A last resort that I held at a distance just incase life becomes too much to bear and nothing ever made me better.

Patients report that suicidal thoughts and ideations are gone after a single KBlend treatment. By treatments two or three patients report that they cannot think about suicide even when they try. We find that no one really wants suicide, but the lack of hope creates desperation.


I think the pain came first, but today it's the chicken or the egg. The depression is so consuming that its hard to know which came first.
At KBlend we often find it necessary to treat the depression before we treat the pain.
