Stories of HOPE
Ira Herman, a TMS patient of Lindner Center of HOPE
For the last 14 years, I have had recurring episodes of severe, totally disabling clinical depression, each lasting between 4 and 14 months. In recent years, the episodes were getting longer and closer together. It seemed to me that I was looking at spending the rest of my life in severe clinical depression.
I have been through at least 6 psychiatrists, have tried all of the commonly prescribed meds. Nothing was helping me… until I found THE COMPLETE ANSWER (at least for me): Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS). On 2/2/10, I walked into Lindner Center of HOPE, in Mason Ohio. At that time, I was not able to drive safely and could barely find my way into the parking lot.
After a series of 32 TMS treatments, one-a-day for six-weeks, I am in complete remission. They gave me my life back. I personally consider this new treatment to be a miracle from God, and it’s a recent scientific medical breakthrough that, I predict, will revolutionize the treatment of “treatment-resistant” depression.
I am back to 100% normal and went from being 100% disabled to 100% able through these treatments. It works–at least it did for me, when NOTHING else did.
