Before Greenbrook TMS Therapy, I was a lot more insecure and I kind of hated my life. I was busy and studying a lot so I didn’t have time to see people, but when I did have time, I still wouldn’t do it. I would just sit in my bed all day. I was just always tired and lethargic. I didn’t have the energy to talk to anyone, and I didn’t want to go out or for people to see me. I’m in pharmacy school, so we learned a lot about antidepressants and their side effects. I’d tried one antidepressant, but it wasn’t for me. I did more research on TMS Therapy and it seemed like a great idea. I wanted to go the non-drug route for my depression because I knew about the side effects.
So far, I feel like it’s worked. It’s a definite improvement. I still have stress because I’m still in school but I feel like it’s helped a lot. My thoughts aren’t as negative. When treatment first started, I wasn’t as friendly as I was. Now I’m a little more patient at work. I’m a little more friendly. It’s definitely helped with school. I tell people to just go for it, to start treatment now. I know that the time commitment can be an issue, but it will help in the long run. I always made time for TMS. It’s helped me.
