Dominic’s Story

Dominic suffers from Major Depressive Disorder. He attends university out of state but has struggled to make and maintain friendships due to his depression.  When Dominic is depressed, he socially withdraws from those around him. He stops going to classes and lacks the motivation to change his circumstances.  Dominic lost a close friend unexpectedly a few years ago and the death of his loved one has prevented him from getting close with people around him. Overall, he lacks motivation and interest in meeting people yet he feels lonely and distraught often.

Dominic came to Greenbrook TMS NeuroHealth Centers hopeful that TMS would make a difference in getting him well. By the end of the six weeks of Greenbrook TMS treatments, Dominic said, “I will never forget this point in my life. Waking up early, more lately than usual, but coming to see uplifting faces wanting to help meant a lot to me. I don’t feel like death is after me anymore. The depression I had I can truly see in the distance strapped to a rocket for outer space. Greenbrook TMS really does work."
