Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

Started TMS this week, 3 treatments so far. Those of you that found TMS helpful in treating your Depression, about how long did it take to start feeling a difference? I know everyone is different, but it would be nice to hear any feelings or time frames on how long it took to start feeling better. Thank you!

Therapist dumped me

Therapist dumped me

How do you go on when your therapist tells you that they can no longer see you that you need to find someone else. This happened a week ago & I'm still having a really hard time with it. Then she tells you to find one & of all of the therapists around are not in your network.

When I talk to myself, I call it thinking out loud. Sometimes I have to do it to keep my train of thought. Or I might forget what I was talking about.

How can I deal with her?

How can I deal with her?

My mother emotionally abuses me. Im scared that her anger is aggrevated everyday and that she'll end up physically hurting me.

Embarrassing question?

Embarrassing question?

I find myself biting or picking my skin a lot. I used to bite my nails and when I got an infection (nothing too serious) I stopped by just picking the skin around it and I find myself biting my skin of my fingers or rubbing my teeth over my nails. Now it seems that I'm doing it without really noticing.

Anyone who’s tried being approved for social security disability,,, what was your experience with it???

Anyone who’s tried being approved for social security disability,,, what was your experience with it???

Depression and anxiety are disabling for so many people, making it impossible to hold onto jobs... social security disability can be extremely hard to be approved for, so what are the ins and outs that anyone can share??? I think it’s an important topic to discuss, especially since deciding who should be approved is so unfair. U paid into it, so it should be there when you need it... anything people can share about… read more

Am I the only person who feels like a "shity friend?"

Am I the only person who feels like a "shity friend?"

I'm not dependable, I rarely answer my phone ( I never answer). My oldest friend, we met 42 years ago, is getting married in May. My social anxiety won't let me go. I feel guilty. What do I tell her?
