Sorry, no photo. The hospital doesn't allow photos to be taken in the treatment areas. I guess I could enquire who could give me permission and request it. But give me a break: I have depression and don't want to do much of anything. I made it to treatment today. That's enough.

Today J started me at the level I ended at yesterday and I jumped on the first buzz. Actually, I jumped at the first 3 or 4 buzzes. I found out that the treatment level will be 120% of my motor thresholds which were 28 & 32. So that would be 33.6 and 38.4. We aren't quite there on the left side, but I made it to the full level on the right side. Tomorrow I'll have to ask what the units are: 33.6 whats?

Some things I have read say the treatment is noisy but I don't find it so. It's about as loud as a busy tone on the phone.

This session wasn't much different than the first day although I felt a little funny afterward. Not dizzy exactly. More like my glasses were on crocked and I couldn't quite focus. I sat in the waiting room and checked my voice mail and after about 10 or 15 minutes it was gone.

As for any effect, it's too early to tell. I haven't been feeling too bad lately, the last week or so, and sleeping fairly well. It will be interesting to see when/if I notice any improvement and if I will be able to tell if it is from the treatment or I'm just in one of my rare but not unknown better phases.
