After a decade of darkness, my lifeline of hope dwindled to a thread of flickering light. Taunting me as it danced about my head. Dodging my grasp like a wisp of smoke—like smoke and mirrors.

And now? I dared not hope for it. For this. For this is what life is made of. Picking strawberries from an acre of green filled with little red dots. Feeling the breath of the ocean across my face. Catching a moment and holding it gingerly in my hands. Protecting it from the whorl of troubles past and worries future. It is fragile, after all. What debt of gratitude is mine? I owe it to the miracles of modern science, and the alchemy of grace.

If It Seems Like You’ve Tried Everything, Hope Is Here

Here at Achieve, we’ve been helping patients with mental health concerns for two decades. We started out providing regular psychiatric care. Then, when the FDA cleared Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in 2008, we took a serious look at it and liked what we saw.

That was the beginning of an era that has changed our lives as well as the lives of our patients. It’s amazing to witness such transformations—consistent, dramatic change that we have never witnessed before.

  • I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I know I wouldn’t feel like this if it weren’t for TMS.

How did you cope with Depression prior to starting the TMS treatment series?
I’ve had depression since 8th Grade. I coped with not eating and mostly cutting. Since I have started TMS, I have not cut once.

How did you cope with depression throughout the TMS treatment series? Did you notice any noticeable differences in yourself?
I noticed that I am getting back to my humor and quick whits. Also noticed my depression episodes only last a few hours instead of months at a time! I feel like I move forward a lot easier and I am more positive.

How are you coping/ will cope with depression after completing the TMS treatment series? Would you recommend TMS to future patients?
I recommend it to EVERYONE! I haven’t felt this good in years. I am coping by having better outlets and eating regularly. I cope with exercising everyday, eating healthy and not isolating.

Is there anything that you would recommend for us to improve our future patient experience?
No.

I have an unrelated medical condition that means that I can’t take a lot of the medications that are available for depression. My depression had become very severe, and I was feeling exhausted and hopeless after trying many new medications, with a variety of unpleasant side effects, but no real improvement. When my psychiatrist recommended TMS, I was initially very skeptical, but I did some research and what I found seemed like TMS might actually be promising, so I decided to give it a try.

Within the first week, my depression went from crushing and overwhelming to something that I felt like I might just be able to handle. While that might not seem like much, it was a huge and remarkable improvement, from my perspective. Throughout the process, the symptoms of my depression have improved dramatically. I’ve gone from consistently feeling like nothing in my life could make me happy to feeling healthy and normal, and I’ve started to make a number of positive changes in my life as a result.

Ryann, the TMS technician I’ve worked with over the course of my treatment, has been knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, and friendly in literally every interaction I’ve had with her. She’s genuinely interested in helping the patients she works with, and it shows.

The long and the short of it is this: I’d recommend Achieve TMS to anyone who struggles with depression, without hesitation.
