Nice Work [...]...nice work.

This is such reassuring news to hear and confirms that this is just a TIME thing and all we gotta do is outlast it.

May it continually get better and better for you.

Congratulations [...], so happy for you and your recovery, I'm wondering if you think that ECT contributed to it? I just read that ECT is done under general anaesthesia, was it the case for you too? And what about TMS? which of those therapies do you feel helped in your recovery? Congratulations again)))

OMG such emotion....tears falling as i read ur responses. Good people suffering  :(

I am trying to respond to all questions but easy to get lost with PMs and the post.

The ECT...did it help? Timing made all my family and friends this YES the ECT helped and is why i am so improved....but i know it didnt. I wud not do it again it was hell in itself. TIME is what healed me and our amazing biological make up. Our brains are damaged and other systems as well.

But our brain rewires and once its back online ( healed) at a nominal state..the other systems begin to heal also.

Symptoms began to lift long after i jumped off. I wud not expect any noticable improvements while tapering. Tapering is tough...go slow...very slow imo.

Our brain, if healing at all during taper stage,  is very minor and just not apparent to us. Its all invisible but know this everyone. IT IS HAPPENING YOU ARE HEALING I PROMISE YOU (tears falling for you) YOU WILL GET BETTER!!!!!!!

Did TMS help:hurt? Did you have overstimulation? Like if you went out it was too much for your brain?

 TY everyone..i remember u all. Lots of ECT and TMS questions i like it.
 [...] the overstim is a symptom of all of us in WD....the TMS was harmless and painfree.

I would sit in a chair, turn on a TV and the tech would hook two big magnets to my head in certain locations.
Once in place...the stimulation would begin. A serious of 3000 pulses in 1 second.

It didnt hurt, but i could feel it like a wood pecker peckin on my skull.

I again, as with the ECT, feel it did nothing to help my depression.
