So far not really having any memory loss….if anything my mind has already improved smarts-wise. It might be because I am young (24). The night before my very first treatment I watched a crappy movie and yes I can’t remember most of it. But that is all I forget!! I am pretty sure I forget more when I am drunk (so many good times forgotten there….)

Hopefully, if you are considering this as a treatment, you are young because maybe it’s actually a really good treatment for young people! Unfortunately, most people just suffer with taking pills that don’t work (or nothing at all) and kill a lot of brain cells in the process. I felt I was going down that road and was getting much more depressed. I was losing cognitive abilities which are SUPER IMPORTANT TO ME and creative abilities. My spelling was getting horrible and no matter how much I corrected myself it never stuff in my head, it went the same with language learning such as vocab in French, Korean alphabet, and when I was taking Japanese in university (I passed with like a 50% and failed one class). AND I DID STUDY I SWEAR! I even changed my major because I thought it would be easier ( I eventually had to quit due to being just too depressed).

So basically I had a bad head ache for about 2 hours after and then reason it was so bad is because I can’t take pain killers except very very weak ones (I puke a lot otherwise). I was completely functional the same day doing laundry, and most of all just feeling, my new feeling.

    I’m glad you didn’t really lose any memory. Yay! But it can really effect it, trust me. I had it for about two years every other week and completely lost my long-term memory. I mean completely. I can’t remember a person, place, or thing prior to November of 2011. It pretty much destroyed my life. I mean it helped my depression and all, but it came with a big price tag. I’m glad you’re pretty much done with yours…best of luck!
