> Hi Hugh,

Interesting.

> Anyway, I will think about neurofeedback, it's just I'm reluctant to fork out money for things that might not work. I was thinking of trying Deep TMS but not sure about that either as I spent around 5,000 having normal rTMS in Vancouver and it didn't really do anything.

That must have hurt -- traveling all that distance and spending all that money and getting nothing out of it. After yet another failed treatment, I'll tell myself, "Oh, well, at least I gave it a try. That's another one I can cross off my list." But this fails to give me much comfort.

> I've started to have therapy again as a lot of people have said that my problems maybe related to having had a very unstable childhood (My mum moved me around quite a bit and I went to a lot of different schools so never had much chance to settle and form a stable group of friends, also was bullied a bit). However, I don't ever remember feeling depressed, anxious or helpless back then. So it's difficult to equate what happened in my childhood with the mental health issues I've experienced since the age of 17.

I'm sorry to hear that your childhood wasn't better, and that you were bullied.

> Also, not sure, what good it is talking about my childhood week after week.

There is evidence that the combination of psychotherapy and medication is more effective than either one alone. Talking about your problems can activate sluggish regions of your brain.
