Chris,

I know exactly what you mean about MAOIs. I have avoided them since day one as much as I could. I think I tried one or two at one point but for very brief periods of time. Too sensitive to the side effects I believe. They have always intimidated me for some reason.

You know, I tend to agree with your perception of TMS. The only reason I even attempted it (aside from the fact that it was harmless to mind and body) is that my husband's health insurance actually covered it. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying. I didn't notice improvement in mood or symptoms, but I didn't notice that I was declining much either. On some level I had never truly developed faith in this treatment. Regardless of how many people it supposedly helped. I never truly "bought it". And a couple of months of it didn't prove me wrong- I couldn't conclude improvement in my mood or not. My husband said he noticed I was calmer while doing it. I wasn't certain I agreed. No blatantly obvious lifting of the veil for me! I know that a lot of clients who claim that it does help them go in for frequent maintenance treatments and I believe
that is the only way it continues to help them. I only wish it
had the efficacy of ECT and the harmlessness of TMS. Ah... Wishful thinking...

Ultimately, I believe it is worth a shot if insurance covers, but paying full price would not have been worth it for me.

Thank you so much for your kind words! Yes, managin the baby and the symptoms has been crazy. And especially confusing because I never truly know if some of it is being caused by hormones, stress, or the illness itself. I feel for your pain as wee. And it sounds that you have been very determined to take action regardless of the obstacles. Not always easy to do.

By the way, has seroquel ever been suggested to you by any of your doctors? Just curious if that has ever been an option for you?
