This is hard for me because there is nothing pretty about depression. I believe it’s very important for people to know that there is ”real hope” for them and their families. For 20 years my family and I struggled through my episodes of major depression. I was in and out of the hospital several times because of depression and suicidal thoughts. I tried a lot of different antidepressants over the years, which always stopped working for me. I found myself on the computer researching new drug trials in the hopes they would come out with the ”magic” pill, that would end my depression. In 2009 my doctor told me about a new treatment for drug resistant depression-Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). I was skeptical at first because nothing had worked before. In November of 2009 I began TMS therapy. That was my new beginning. TMS therapy was my ”spa” treatment for six weeks. My husband says he has his wife back! I don’t know if I can express how wonderful that makes me feel. I had no idea how much it would bless my life. I appreciate the simple things in life. Having that cup of coffee with my husband before he goes to work makes me very happy!!! I am a lot more positive about life. Even during those stressful challenging times, I can find something good! I’m thrilled to say I am depression-free!!!
