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.

My TMS Experience: Day 5

allergy-cold-disease-flu-41284I hated today’s session.  Today’s technician, Bradley, warned me that it might be worse because I’d had a few days off from the treatment.  It was.  I was able to use my own earplugs: apparently the noise reduction rating of 30 is what they aim for in noise reduction at the clinic.  I also tried a saline nose spray before, and my nose ran whilst my eye was watering.

I asked Bradley about rebound headaches and he said it would be likely.  Fucking awesome.  SO THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?  Maybe it’ll get better.  I hope Dr Baer sees me this week so I can ask him about it.

My TMS Experience: Day 4

I have completed my first week of TMS treatment! Today’s session was also by Anna. She started my giving me my Beck inventory (I will be having them weekly on Fridays) The dentist chair had been moved, as had the desk.  Anna offered to get me a pillow for my left arm (right arm is twitching).  However, as my left arm is busy clutching the small stuffed cat I bring with me as well as my Kindle, I opted out.  I my eyes watered for most of the session.  I met the same woman with whom we had made small talk yesterday.

I asked Anna if there was anything I needed to know for the weekend.  She said either an increase or decrease in symptoms could occur and to email them if need be.
