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.

TMS in the news: The Bloggess is considering TMS

I read Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson, AKA The Bloggess about a year and a half ago.  I thought it was hysterical, so I followed her on Twitter.  Today, I noticed that she had posted on her blog about how her increasing depression and that she was considering looking into TMS to treat it.  She says she’s going to see the results of some bloodwork and then proceed from there.  If she decided to do it, it will be interested to see a public figure go through TMS.
