WELL. The above photos show how much can change in 24hrs. The left shows how I was yesterday, during my “life is ok I suppose” short time period. And the right was taken about 20mins ago. Today I got news. News I expected, but not quite so quickly.
So for those who are long time readers/friends, you’ll know “here we go again” means usually one of two things for me: 1. Either I’m on a new medication OR 2. I’m going back inpatient.
Well, HEY THERE BELMONT. NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. Not.
So yes. Monday I will be going into “that” place again. My last admission in March, well it was less than fun. I was withdrawing from Effexor, and well, my admission experience didn’t end well. Long story.
Anyway, I’m going in on Monday for the start of a 20 treatment, 3wk stay for TMS.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
I have avoided jumping on the “Google-a-tron” because there are just some things that putting into that little box, well sometimes it can just end … badly. And by that I mean, I get paranoid and freaked out and read the wrong things… and yeah.
Short explanation of TMS: Transcrainal Magnetic Stimulation
(This is my layman’s explanation) Basically you wear a helmet thing that is fitted to your head and a magnet is used to stimulate or suppress (depending on the treatment you’re having) blah blah blah.
I don’t care. I don’t want to go in. I KNOW there are a ton of reasons to go, and I AM going, BUT
I DON’T WANT TO GO.
