I had suicidal thoughts, no motivation, lack of interest in friends and family. I tried four antidepressants, and they didn't relieve any of the issues I was having. And with them came side effects I wasn't willing to tolerate to get better. I came to the point in my life where I'd been depressed for quite a long time and I needed to try a different path, so I decided to try TMS. About my 5th week of Neurostar therapy, I started to feel a difference. I feel more motivated in my home, more joyful around people, a little more of that 'normal' feeling. That improved during the 6 weeks, and now I'm 2 months out and looking forward to the future.
I was severely depressed over a period of three years. I tried several antidepressants but nothing really seemed to work. I had a severe allergic reaction. My family was very poorly impacted by the whole problem of my depression. By the end of the TMS treatment, things were better than I could have imagined. After that six week, I was so excited that my life was starting to resume. It could actually get better and that I had more to look forward to.
During that time, it was probably the darkest time in my life. I was sad and miserable all the time. Before when I was going through depression, I felt hopeless. Since TMS, my perspective on life has been so positive that I know there is hope. – Martha F.
