I Have Reclaimed My Life

Before TMS treatment, coping with life was incredibly difficult due to numerous failed trials of various antidepressants. I would essentially isolate, withdraw, and oversleep my way through life. I lost total hope and became convinced that nothing would help my depression & anxiety.

Since receiving TMS, I have reclaimed my life in many ways where I thought it would have previously been impossible. I’m becoming more physically active, engaging with family & friends, accomplishing more tasks with work, becoming more resilient to adversity, and managing stress more easily.

I’m beyond amazed with how well I have responded to TMS. It changed my life in such a profound and positive way. It has restored my hope and gratitude in life. I would absolutely do it again and am so glad it will be there if I need it. I would absolutely recommend TMS to those who have not responded to antidepressants satisfactorily and suffer from clinical depression & anxiety.

My experience with True North TMS has been incredible. The device itself is not invasive and lasts 20 minutes. It doesn’t hurt and the amazing staff do an outstanding job of providing compassion, while also demonstrating true competence and top-notch professionalism. I thank you all deeply for helping and being a huge part of this unique and invaluable part of my journey.

Experiencing Happiness Again After TMS

I struggled with major depression and anxiety for over four years. During this time, I tried several antidepressants with minimal results. I also went to therapy, which helped me to deal with the depression, yet my symptoms wouldn’t lift and over time became worse. I felt like I was living in a dark cave. My brain function slowed, which affected my short and long-term memory. I was worried that I was experiencing early onset Alzheimer’s, which only added to my depression. I began to give up hope of feeling the normal range of everyday emotions, and the ability to think and recall information quickly. But things have now changed. I am extremely grateful to have been educated about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and to have had the chance to undergo treatment. This technology, along with the supervision and support of Dr. Telford and Dr. Ha, plus the enormous support of the technologist and staff at True North TMS gave me my life back. My brain function is back to normal and I am regularly experiencing happiness again.

Before TMS Treatment

I just tried to get by, making sure I got the essentials done (work, sleep, eat). It was a struggle to do these things, but anything else (e.g. hanging out with others, exercising) was too much. Since receiving TMS, “I’m more motivated to get out and do activities. I’m more motivated to talk to and spend time with others. I stopped missing work due to symptoms. I am able to focus better at work. I no longer fantasize about being dead.
