My first episode of depression was back in 2002. I was treated with medication but most didn’t work. I went through a phase of ECT treatments which worked for a time but I did have a recurrence of the depression. I never felt like doing anything. I was happy staying home in my dark little cave. I slept a lot and never wanted to see anyone. I never did housework. I ate because I knew I had to but not because I wanted to. I had several friends that would call and check on me but I never wanted to do anything with them. Dr. Gross finally convinced me to give Neurostar TMS Therapy a try because he said it’s your quality of life we are talking about here. After our conversation, I kept thinking back to what Dr. Gross had said. I decided I was willing to try it for the hope that it would improve my quality of life. I called his office a few days later and agreed to start treatments.
I started going through the treatments 5 days a week and after about a month, I woke up one day and didn’t feel anxious or depressed and I began to think it was working. I had more energy and wanted to go out and see my friends. And it only got better from there. After the six weeks of treatment I was back to my old self.
I had 27 treatments with basically no side effects at all. I had a headache after the first treatment but after that I was fine and had no problems with it. I am currently on medication and will continue with it but now I am completely without depression symptoms.
