    Identifying avoidance

    I totally relate to the anxiety it causes when i walk out the door and cringe at the thought of another human being seeing me or a possible interaction. I know where it comes from (way long ago) but knowing does not help the feelings of anxiety and disassociation i experience daily after all...

    Identifying avoidance

    I can relate to this thread. I find I feel more normalized since everyone else needs to isolate also, though for different reasons than I usually do. I have to work hard not to go down into the pit emotionally. I have to turn off the news at a certain point several times a day. The hike with my...

    My social anxiety is diminished with Social Isolation in place

    whiteraven,yes, my therapist and I are meeting via computer. this "avoidance of people" thing is so deep with so many tentacles. I am fully realizing, during this pandemic situation, that I do like human contact and I have always found my own special ways of interacting despite all my...

    My social anxiety is diminished with Social Isolation in place

    I find myself dreading the day that society goes back to normal. Not that I like the horrible impact on health and lives and economy, etc. of this pandemic. I have noticed I feel very comfortable knowing I don't have to interact with others. I usually feel so awkward and distant from others when...

    Ketamine vs TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)

    thanks for your input joeylittle. gosh, a lot has happened with me (and the world) since March 8, just over 2 weeks ago since I posted last here about ketamine. My TMS doc shut his practice down for clients a week ago Monday, after receiving 12 treatments. That was the day I had been...

    Ketamine vs TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)

    BeTheLight Everything I am learning about Ketamine, I imagine it helped your grandmother and gave her some relief. Maybe the people around her considered it abuse but that would have been before it was studied and now regularly used for people with mental illness..... that's my take on it...

    Ketamine vs TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)

    Now that sounds like common sense talking, eveharrington....... my impatience is running rampant right now that I just found out there is a Ketamine clinic nearby but I have been so disappointed by high anticipation of the "next" fix so many times. I hate to wait another month but it could be...

    Ketamine vs TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)

    Ketamine vs TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation)

    I have had 7 days of TMS and just found out there is a Ketamine clinic in my town. I am thinking of quitting the TMS and going for the Ketamine.It is done via an IV. Can anyone here share their experience with either? Apparantly they both don't last forever so you need ongoing treatments. TMS...
