> if meds fail then VNS will be for me. only side effect is voice alteration. it's a pace maker for the brain. Although it doesn't even touch the brain. it's a tiny box in your chest with a little cord going around your vegus nerve. this cord gives it a small pulse every 3-6 minutes which over weeks or months of time make you feel more normal. response rates for true treatment resistant patients is around 45%.

Do you know if 45% is a 'response' (ie 50% improvement) or a 'remission' rate?

>nothing to lose.

Quite.

>if you're suicidal then move to canada

Nice part of the world.
