“I no longer have a problem with going to any public place where there are a lot of people”
“Don’t be scared… the therapy has no side effects”
“The most important thing is that today I feel much better than I did before”
Before starting the therapy, I was not doing well. In fact, I confess that I’m not sure how I manage to drive my car to the office for the first time. I suffered from depression, anxiety, panic attacks and agoraphobia.
I have to say that this treatment was not very effective to begin with. But as time went on, I began to get better. From the second or third month, I started to feel better. I would only attend one session per week however.
The symptom I most improved on was the agoraphobia. I no longer have a problem with going to any public place where there are a lot of people. My problem was so severe that I was afraid to even take care of my grandchildren. Now I can enjoy my time with them. My family is very happy. Before, my son was very worried and he would say to me: “You act like a zombie”. Seeing this change has been a wonder to them.
I tell people not to be afraid, to try this treatment. The therapy has no side effects. It is a moment of relaxation during which the doctor plays something on the television. You can even bring something to watch, I brought concert videos of my favorite artists. They put sensors on your head and the doctor monitors your cerebral activity on a computer while you watch the television. You don’t feel anything; you even forget that you have the sensors on your head.
Nowadays, I’ve lowered the intensity of the therapy. My visits are irregular, maybe two sessions per month or less. The most important thing is that today I feel much better than I did before.
