I suffered from depression for more than 40 years and it was a terrible terrible thing to live with. Ss it got worse, my life and the things that I did, became smaller and smaller and smaller. Finally this year. I had a very bad episode of depression and couldn’t even think. Didn’t want to get out of bed, didn’t want to talk on the phone, go places, be with friends. I sort of isolated myself and it was scary, it was scary to me because I’ve never felt this way before and it was scary to my husband because I had never been like this before. I was skeptical at first as I’m sure most people are because you think how is something that’s going to be in your head going to take care of things, but it did it, really did. The first few times I had it, I didn’t really see a whole lot of difference. Then around about the second week, end of the second week, it was like going from black and white to color, and the color of life was just beginning to ooze in, and every day became more vivid and more vivid. I have never felt this good in my whole life. I really have confidence in myself again and I’ve also learned what my limits are and I am open to new things and I’m not the person that I was when I was depressed. I’m more vibrant, more outgoing, and I enjoy things, and I want to do things. That anticipation has come back to me that wasn’t there before. The anticipation of a trip or anticipation that someone’s going to come and visit you. During depression I never had that anticipation so it blahhh. I just can’t say enough about the program. The staff was wonderful. My clinician was fantastic, she would make me feel very comfortable and very relaxed, and she let my husband come in and stay in the room and even my dog so I felt a lot more comfortable. She was just a wonderful person and I had a lot of knowledge, and if she didn’t, she would tell me and get the answer for me the next day. I liked that, she wouldn’t try to say something that wasn’t right. The office is fantastic and they give wonderful candy and goodies. Everybody is very friendly here, you walk in the door and the receptionist says “hey, hi, how are you doing?” You can’t help but just feel good. The first couple of days I couldn’t raise my eyes to her but after a while I got infected with this hi how are you and responded in kind to her. Every day that I had the treatment it just added to the good things that I could see. It’s been maybe two or three months since I finished the little course of the treatment and I think I’m still improving every day. I think I’m finding new and more adventurous happy things that were there all the time but because of my depression I just couldn’t see. After suffering from depression for 40 years it’s hard to believe in something but this for me has worked and it has made the difference in my life in my husband’s life and even with my adult children. I am the person that can handle things and take care of things and can love them and who joke with them and can anticipate good things down the road and I wasn’t that before when I was depressed.
