    On second week of Tms protocol, anxiety is up more then usual,but I guess that's normal? One thing I have noticed is my sleep has gotten a little better. Slept from 12-4 last night and then 430-730. Anyone else have trouble with their sleep due to Tms? I have my scheduled appt with Tms doctor this Monday. Wish me luck :)

    Hi Benny, you are making fabulous progress my friend, good luck on Monday.

    I suffer from sleeping problems too, but will take meds if I really need to.

    Sometimes I feel as if I am making progress, but other days I have set backs, just like everyone. I've come to terms with it not being an over night healing and I need to invest more time in getting my thinking right. I think once I've achieved this, everything else will improve - my sleeping habits, leg etc.

    I had trouble sleeping until I learned to turn off my mindful worries until the next day,
    I also found a good natural supplement for sleep: Sleep Aid, a Kirkland product from Costco that I bought via amazon.com
    Its cheap and works, supposed to be like Unisom. Not habit-forming.

    Thank u Walt. My sleep n anxiety was so bad 2 months ago that I was taking Xanax,but ran out and told myself I had to beat this without drugs. It's been hard,but it's very do able.
