Life changing; nothing short of life changing. These are the words I would use to describe the impact TMS has had for me. Prior to having the TMS treatment, I had tried many different ways to treat my depression and anxiety, including taking many different types of antidepressants under a doctor’s supervision, as well as participating in both individual and group therapy sessions. Although I would get occasional relief, I never was able to completely get rid of the debilitating effect of the depression. There were many days that I cried at the drop of the hat, or even worse, did not have the energy to even cry. It got to the point that the only thing I would look forward to was taking a long nap or going to sleep – not quite the type of life you would wish on anyone.
After the TMS treatments, I began to regain my energy and passion for life. I was also able to engage in activities that contributed to my overall well being, such as exercising and hiking with our dogs. The improvement was manifest in other ways as well. My husband noticed me humming along with a song. I noticed myself giggling at a funny television show. Something had definitely changed for me.
After the initial TMS treatment, I continued to take measures to support my mental health and well being, such as working out at the gym and continuing to participate in therapy. TMS gave me the boost I needed to be able to live a healthy life and have a positive outlook on each day and on the future.
Simply life changing.
