    I am getting ready to begin treatment #24. I was doing great and feeling better until about 9-10 days ago when I hit rock bottom. It is almost unbearable to deal with when I was having an awesome outcome. I have spoken to my doc and TMS team about this and I think they are going to extend my treatment, but is it normal to have such a long dip? I went from absolutely loving life, which I have never felt before to hating life and being sad and depressed more than ever. I don’t know how much more that I can take of this. I can’t stand myself and am really losing confidence after feeling an enormous change prior to this huge dip. Any information or advice would help. I’m just really really lost……

    My experience with TMS was definitely a roller coaster. I had almost an immediate positive response to TMS, so we knew it worked with me. However, about 1/2 through (treatment #24 as well) I also hit a huge low. It was scary because I thought I had found something that worked and had hope, then to have that dip and to feel so awful again made me feel sunk. But then it started to work again. Due to that dip my doctor got an additional 10 treatments covered (so 51 total). By then end of the treatment I would say I was feeling about 75% better from where I started, which was almost non-functional. So my personal input would be to stick with it. My hope for you is that since you had a positive response that you will start to see positive results again. I’m actually on round 2 and had almost the same experience – a dip 1/2 way through.
