    Have you noticed any positive changes in your life while going through this program? If so what role did your TMS/PPD treatment play in it. If not, what areas of your life do you need to make changes?

    So far, I have basically completely conquered my fear of using my laptop. I don't view it as something that hurts me anymore. I get on it everyday to get on these forums and I type out my journals on here instead of writing them. I beat an entire videogame on here recently and am playing a second one. I can code again (aka have hope for a decent job in the future).

    However I still fear playing videogames with my controller (my biggest fear) and playing with keyboard and mouse on the couch. I have tried both, in half an hour with a controller I got this crazy pain in my thumb so I stopped. The pain lasted a couple days but went away really fast relatively though. Keyboard and mouse playing has been a lot better, and in the past few days I have played quite a few hours, and while it was pretty glorious my hands finally feel a bit worn out and achy so I will give them a bit of rest. Still if this keeps improving, that would be pretty sweet.
