I was sitting here at the computer in another middle of the night insomniac attack and found something interesting online. They have a procedure called DBS that is currently approved for Parkinson's, but has apps for major depression too.
In a few small clinical trials with treatment resistant depression (of which I am one), they had a 60% cpmplete remission with no relapse, 40% felt a great improvement.
It involves placing small electrodes in your brain with a power source under the skin by the collarbone. Batteries must be replaced. I know for some people that this would be outside their beliefs or desire, but boy am I excited. Of course, FDA has not approved it yet and Lord knows , my Medicare probably won't pay for it but it looks promising
Please check it out and let me know what you think. I have been thru the ects, had one week of mania, after 6 weeks of unpleasantness. 6 hospitalizations, at least 15 antids, years of counseling...I am ready!!
Just something else to mull on.
