“Prior to TMS, I cannot remember a time in my life where I wasn’t either depressed, filled with anxiety, or riding the wave of mixed emotions related to medicated side effects. The relationships in my life were consistently impacted by the influx of my mood and would bury myself with guilt for the pain I was inflicting on everyone because I just couldn’t “stop being depressed.” I was hesitant to try TMS at first, as I had already spent 10+ years in therapy and was constantly switching medication to find the right antidepressant. However, after spending a few hours researching TMS and reading testimonials, I figured I might as well give it a shot.
I was very intimidated by the process at first and felt overwhelmed by the amount of time I would need to dedicate to this on a weekly basis. However, after the first few sessions I quickly realized that the staff at Oregon TMS was just as therapeutic as the actual treatment itself. I became so close with everyone, especially Elyssa, and the treatments became the highlight of my day. Everyone genuinely cares about you and is invested in your success. The actual treatment doesn’t hurt but does feel a little awkward for the first few weeks until you are used to it. Halfway through the treatment plan you kind of take a “dip” into a weird depression feeling, and even though I read testimonials where people mentioned this feeling, I was scared that this would be another form of therapy that didn’t work. The feeling didn’t last long, and I was amazed because I realized that I was starting to care about myself. I had naturally intercepted my thoughts from spiraling down a rabbit hole of depression, without having to grab my therapeutic cheat sheet of ways to stop myself from panicking. My brain had never worked like that before and I realized that something had changed. TMS did not solve all my problems, and I still have times where I feel depressed, but I am hopeful in my future and believe in myself.
TMS gave me a second chance at life and I am so beyond thankful for the care and dedication that I received from TMS Oregon.”
“TMS was absolutely great for me, my first time was January 2018, my life was a total mess, & I was quite suicidal. Starting it I slowly began to feel better, by the time I was finished with it, I actually felt good, it was so nice to actually not be in pure misery all of the time!!
It was like a miracle!!
My second time was about the same, I didn’t start feeling real bad, however I was very depressed, & was dealing with very difficult things in life. Again it really helped me thru real tough time’s!!
Without TMS I don’t know where I would be now, it was a truly life saver!!”
