      when I first started having these treatments,my memory was toast but as I continued them,it did get better.I still have a state of confusion after a treatment and my emotions are hard to keep in check but it's better than trying so many pills that I could not tolerate the side effects.I am 49 and have two boys under 8,so they need me.I still have bad days but now I can talk myself out of the hole I keep falling in.Thanks for asking,Mike
