TMS in the News: Beliefnet and a Movie

Beliefnet has a good TMS 101 post.  Also, I though I haven;t seen it, Babble reports that new movie about PPD, When the Bough Breaks, discusses MS.

TMS Experience: Days 13 and 14

Day 13:  Anna was my tech.  It hurt, since I had had 3 days off.   No sneezing, though.  I asked Anna if I should be concerned about the fact I was menustrating and she said just to watch for mood swings and irritability….k.

Day 14:  New Tech,  Kylie.  She was nice.  More interactive than some.  It still hurts.  She reminded me I’m still in the early phase.   ‘

No change in mood.  Becoming frustrated.  Also noticing a new intrusive thought convinced I’m losing my hearing.  And an increase in Dermatillomania.  It’s usually a thing that happens only when I’m at the end of my rope.

Books of the Session:  No One is Coming to Save Us and The Wages of Sin.

See all of my TMS experience posts.

My TMS Experience Days 8 & 9, also MD appointments

Day 8:  This was ok.  Pain was a little higher than the previous day.  Anna led the session.

Day 9:  Today really hurt for some reason.  Also I was sleepy, and kept on nodding off between sessions.  Bradley was my leader today.  So I’m so depressed and gloomy I can’t be optimistic, but I figure I can be grateful and fake cheer.  Today this led to me grinning before every shock.  I don;t even know sometimes.

I met with Dr. Ellis monday.  She tried to be emphatic that even if TMS doesn’t work, it’s not the last option.  Sigh.  She also wants to increase my Lamictal but wanted to check with Dr. Packer.  I also met with Hope yesterday.

I’m just so tired of feeling this way.  I miss the old me.

My TMS Experience: Day 7 (Day 1?)

I was finally able to go back for my TMS treatment today.  Bradley administered it.  It was a mixed bag:  it hurt, I sneezed a lot and my eyes watered.  I also bit my tongue my accident.  However, drinking Gatorade beforehand seems to have helped the headache, so that’s good.  Also, I got my pixie cut trimmed even closer than usual, and it helped with the hair pulling.

Book of the Session:  Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera.

 

 

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

So today I get a certified letter from (former employer), saying my COBRA ended on March 25.  First of all, I freaking contacted them about this issue in March.  Secondly, Insurance has been approving stuff for the past month.  

I contacted the TMS office (Lizzie), they’re contacting insurance, but for the moment I’m not going per their recommendation.
Ugh,
