I agree, that would be wonderful.  I guess though that would be discovered with a reality of a cure for cancer.  How sad it is that the diseases that in my opinion are the cruelist are with us with no cure in sight.  Yes there are drugs and other treatments that we endure but in the end we fight this fight every day.
I have the VNS implant which was implanted nearly 2 years ago and I have really not noticed a change in my depression like the doc and I anticipated.  In fact, I am in a worse depression for many months.  I have the VNS and take 8 different meds.  To me this is ridiculous, I should be doing SSSSOOOOO.........MUCH BETTER!,in fact, I should be almost depression free but I am not any where near that!! 
I am tired of struggling with this disease and have tried to busy myself in activities.  I am so physically and mentally tired by the end of the day that for several weeks I have not even taken a sleeping pill to help sleep, I find myself literally exhausted all the time.
If you hear of a "brain-fix" cure, PLEASE LET US BE THE FIRST TOO KNOW!!!!!, lol.

Eej Gabby,

It sure as hell would be cool, but on the other hand, unless you change the way you actually think, you will have bad memories back in no-time (although you probably can erase them again :) ). Anyway, humans have the ability accept bad memories, and thus turning the negative side of them into peace.

One thing I would love to have is some sort of machine that will get data in your head Matrix-style :), how cool would that be?!

Take care!

Edit: Faithfull, I am sorry to hear all this. Please try to keep going, and I hope with all my heart that someday you will feel better.

Brain re-programming has advantages and dis-advantages. Although it would make things better in the short term, you would chnage who you are as a person and Im not sure I would want that since you couldnt guarantee how you would turn out... its a nice thought though

Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

Maybe they could give us a gaurentee on that brain that we would still be the same person, just with more intelligence.LOL...

Though that would be something, I think I will keep my own worn out brain, I have grown accustome to it.hehehe.

In a way we do erase old memories...recently I read some journaling I had written about six years ago..and thought Wow - I am no longer that person - I have grown and moved on from those thoughts/memories - they actually don't feature on the front page of my mind anymore like they used to :-)
