    I just finished my 11th treatment. It all seem to be going well in the past two weeks with a couple of minor dips In mood. Today I woke up having terrible nightmares and have been flooded with overwhelming amounts of repressed memories ever since. This happened on a smaller scale after the past two days of treatment in the afternoon, but nothing like this. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Caleb,
    I am on treatment 6 so I have very little experience to share. I have only had one bad treatment that was very painful, the rest have been fine. With that aside, I did notice that one of your tags is suicide, I am thinking that you are either thinking about it or about a previous experience with thoughts of suicide. If this is indeed the case I think it would be a good idea if you try to contact your doctor or go to the ER. Who can really say what TMS might trigger in your brain, the brain is so complex that even the experts don’t really know all that they are dealing with. If your repressed memories are causing you pain seek out help and don’t let things get so out of control that you think of hurting yourself. Best to you.

    @caleb Yes, I had the experience your describing. It was during my 2nd week of treatment. The first week was joyful memories from the past. Remember some of this is restoring connections, so it might bring up all kinds of things in the brain. I’m working with a CBT counselor to discuss as things come up. If possible I highly recommend a counselor working with you on this very unclear roller coaster ride. I’m in your boat with the suicidal thoughts for a damn year…hopefully this rids that. Good luck Caleb! 🍀 Keep fighting…I’m on #31 and finally have less crying (literally everyday was crying) but no where near to 2017 self. They decided to extend my treatments for another 5 weeks 2X week. We shall see…
