  1. what about vagal nerve stimulation a couple years back was supposed to be the new thing, now its this instead. also ketamine was supposed to be the new all star treatment for bipolar mood swings, but that never got off the ground either. hope this time it will be the one.

    • I hope so too. It’s encouraging that there are so many new devices on the market. Each generation of stimulators seems to be a quantum leap better than the one before. I’m going to wait until they’ve had more testing to see about getting one. Till then I’ve got my cannabis to get me through the night. I’d love to get one of those stimulators so that I could be more productive. Maybe I should ask Santa….
