In praise of the VNS

Just returned from Phoenix. Really tired. Great weekend.
To make this short, my mother suffers from lifelong depression/ bi-polar depression amongst other things.
She had a Vagus Nerve Stimulator implanted in March. It has made a tremendous difference so far.
I actually felt I was talking with a mentally healthy person this weekend.

If you suffer from severe depression that drugs don't treat, look this up on the net.

Gotta crash.

Hmmmm myabe I should look that up as well. Although I can get my depression under control at times, while other times, it kicks my ass. I am thinking my kids might be a tad bi-polar as well. While the Dr's say ADHD- I am thinking it might be more than that. Will have to look it up.

I am sorry that I missed your call last night. We went for a walk and i did have my phone on me but I never heard it rang. I would have called back, but you sounded so tired!

Have a great day!

Happy to hear you had a good Easter weekend.

Glad to hear that there are finally ways out there to take care of depression. I'm happy to hear she is doing well.

Take care
