      texas is such a cool name or nickname! i’ve tried 2 or 3 antidepressants but because they’ve all been the same type (ssri) they don’t know if it’s because of the meds or me being stubborn in regards to accepting help 😅

      There’s also ketamine assisted therapy now for treatment resistant depression!

      It sounds like you have medication resistant depression. I do as well. I did TMS. It was covered by my insurance. What you need to do is get a list from your doctor of all the medications you’ve tried in the last 2 or more years and then contact someone in your area who does the treatments. They will work with your insurance. The treatments will likely be 5 days a week for about 6 weeks. So it’s a commitment. Good luck. KIT!

        @Shell_Belle going to ask you a dumb question what is TMS?

          @Texas It’s hard to explain, but basically it’s a treatment using magnets to taps on the head. Sounds crazy, but it’s legit!
