I am Byron, a 53-year old male suffering from anxiety, insomnia, and depression for the past 30 years. I have been on many different medications in the past with minimal to moderate success.
I started using Cervella approximately 2 months ago. On day one I had significant relief of my anxiety that lasted approximately 48-72 hours. I had not had this type of relief in over 30 years, even when using medication. I would often feel like my brain was short-circuiting and that would keep me from making clear decisions.
Normally I shut down mentally and am easily overwhelmed with everyday tasks and organizing my day. Tasks that are simple for most people have become the bane of my existence. After the treatment, I felt like the clouds parted and the sun shone through and I was no longer overwhelmed.
After using Cervella I could finally see the path in front of me and the tasks that seemed impossible feel attainable. I felt like I could take a few tasks at a time and not feel pressured to do it all and that everything would not come crashing down if those tasks were not completed that day. I also had a difficult time with making and taking phone calls. When I would hear the phone ring I would cringe knowing I had to answer it or return the call. This would be very impactful to both my work and personal life. I am now able to reach out and became more proactive having better control over that part of my life.
I also did not have an interest in anything outside of work (and on occasions even work) and would not want to see people, do any hobbies, or do things that I used to enjoy. I would have to work myself up for hours to even participate in things on a very infrequent basis. I have started to have those feelings lift and I have started working on some projects and spending time with friends.
Thanks to Cervella I am starting to have hope again. I feel like I can start putting behind those days when I had felt that life was not worth living. This feeling of hopelessness has started to lift and I am becoming more active in my life. I am very excited to continue Cervella and see how my journey continues to improve. This has been life changing.
