“TMS has given me my life back”
When Christine came in for TMS Therapy, she had been struggling with her Depression since early adolescence. In recent months she described feeling down and hopeless every day, having increased appetite and hardly any energy and lacking interest or pleasure in activities she normally enjoys. She was plagued by guilt because her Depression prevented her from being fully engaged and present with her precocious 6-year old daughter. She was also having passive thoughts of suicide without intent or plan. Christine had little response to antidepressants over the years. When her psychiatrist recommended TMS Therapy, Christine decided to give it a try. Before starting TMS, Christine experienced frequent tearfulness, depressed mood, flat affect, suicidal ideation, history of weight gain due to medications, and frequent migraines. After six weeks Christine confidently states “TMS has given me my life back.” How are things different for Christine now? She now maintains a much-improved, loving, and uplifting relationship with her daughter and she has been more productive at work; her co-workers even commented on her better mood! Christine’s sleep improved, her migraines went away completely and she implemented a diet and exercise plan to maintain mood and weight. Christine reports that she continues to feel better day by day. She went from being socially withdrawn upon first coming to the Center and left smiling and laughing again like her normal self.
