The following are posts in a thread from our old forum (I'm trying to bring more and more of this old posts over here because they are filled with gems). We don't go through this treatment in a vaccum. As we recover we continue to have to interact with our family, friends, and coworkers. It is impossible that these interactions won't, in some way, be affected by our recovery. The following was a question I posed on the old forum with responses from other forum members. By all means feel free to post your own response about how your relationships have changed because of TMS and how you can balance TMS and these relationships.
