Hoping I have a good day tomorrow without going crazy, at least no more crazier than usual

Anon even when we think there is no one who will notice, there is someone that loves us, we may just not be able to see it at the moment, but there is someone even if it's just us

I am thinking about hope uncomfortable I am. Force myself to health club and drip sweat waiting to get through. Once home my system is so unsettled that I have to sit and not even think about doing anything for a while. I take my pain meds for my FM and I sometimes get some brief relief. I actually have a small electric heater on the table next to me that feels good. Labeled "Treatment Resistant" for some time buy trying Savella and lowering Paxil while gradually getting off Neurontin. Bottom line, as per my doctors, is stop thinking about what can I do to get going or what am I doing wrong. This is a real disease (MDD) and have to adjust thinking and liestyle to find some comfort. And forget about what anyone else thinks.

Have you looked into TMS Therapy? It is a treatment for people with treatment resistant depression.

hello, H and TMSneuro --

there is a very long thread discussing TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) that you may want to take a look at -- http://forums.webmd.com/3/depression-exchange/forum/5399/16?pg=1 . try to be patient wading thru it, because there are several points of view expressed and lots of responses. however, i think it would be worth your time to check it out.

other threads with some discussion of TMS (with or without comparative comments about ECT) are at --

-- http://forums.webmd.com/3/depression-exchange/forum/8404 ,

-- http://forums.webmd.com/3/depression-exchange/forum/7865 , and

-- http://forums.webmd.com/3/depression-exchange/forum/6995 , second and ninth posts, both by BB.

in one thread discussing different forms of treatment for depression but not specifically about TMS exclusively, i referred to an article on TMS from the mayo clinic, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/transcranial-magnetic-stimulation/MY00185 ; another mayo clinic article on TMS is at http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/transcranial-magnetic-stimulation/MY01466 . however, i have never done a lengthy independent search on the subject of TMS itself.

webMD articles on TMS are at --

-- http://www.webmd.com/depression/video/brain-stimulation-depression , video;

-- http://www.webmd.com/depression/news/20081008/fda-oks-tms-depression-device ;

-- http://www.webmd.com/depression/experimental-treatments-depression , first section; and

-- http://www.webmd.com/depression/news/20100504/rtms-magnet-treatment-for-depression-works .

i include all of these references to sources of TMS info not to overwhelm anyone but because it is not yet in widespread clinical application and because i know that anyone considering it is feeling pretty awful and may want to research it as a treatment possibility.

i send caring thoughts to all.
