Sorry it’s been so long since I provided an update or read others’ blogs. The last few weeks haven’t been great.
I start TMS tomorrow afternoon. There will be 30 sessions in total, each about 30 minutes long, one a day M-F. The first session will be longer as they need to find the right location and intensity for my mini space helmut.
The cocktail I was on before failed about a week and a half ago. We tried another drug in the interim and it failed almost immediately. Now I have one of the prerequisites for TMS treatment – some uncontrolled anxiety or depression. This is so we have a reference to determine if the treatment is working.
The whole TMS thing is scary, not the procedure or side effects, but what it means if it doesn’t work. I’ve got about a 50/50 chance of it working. I don’t like the odds, but I don’t have much choice. I’m not going to dwell on what it means if it doesn’t work, though. It might actually work.
