I am 65 yrs. but had to retire at 62. I suffered from depression for many years , since I married actually. I didn’t seek help until I had a major crisis at work. I was a Pediatric/neonatal nurse. I was working nights and it made me crazy. I had to go on leave. I finally left the hospital and went to work in a medical practice where I was paid half the salary with new stresses. Also had stresses at home with cheating husband, bankruptcy, foreclosure and divorce. I have been seeing a Psychologist for 10 years and with his help and some medications I weathered the storm but wasn’t happy. I had some medical issues which prevented me from working and retired on SSDisability and a pension from the hospital. I didn’t know what to do with myself. I wasn’t enjoying my hobbies, tired all the time, no motivation, just stuck. I looked into TMS as their was a local office. I live in MA so plenty of big hospitals and smart docs. Anyway I met with their Psychiatrist who thought I would benefit and started treatments in June of 2018. My Medicare totally covered it. The method they used was Brainsway. I had treatments Mon thru Fri daily for 6 weeks then tapered off. I didn’t notice a response until the end and so they extended for 15 more treatments. I feel much better, no longer have that ever present anxiety, can carry on a conversation and feel hopeful about the future. I still see my therapist weekly and still take some maintenance meds. They call to follow up and encourage you to call if you feel like you’re slipping to get booster treatments. Treatments were uncomfortable but tolerable. I wouldn’t have been able to work after. My family noticed the change in my mood. So for me TMS worked well and was worth the time commitment. I finally finished in September. My Dad died which was a setback but I’m doing better. I would recommend it. They are professional, knowledgeable and friendly and do all they can to make you comfortable. It’s called Achieve east with offices in Western MA and now on the south shore.
