Fine. I do not know if the equipment they shall use like a deep coil is at their location in Milano or Cagliari, Sardinia. It could be both places. Milano is the closest to you but Cagliari is likely much cheaper to live in. 


Write that you have depression with anhedonia and what rTMS locations you have tried and how many sessions. Also the medicines tried. I would likely leave naltrexone and the depersonalization story out of it.  You have been told that they have equipment to do rTMS at other locations for depression. I think that have open 6.days a week for 12.hours a day and they might do 2.sessions a day with some hours spacing between sessions. There have been done some trails with 5.rTMS sessions a day in extremely depressed with reductions in symptoms of 80% after 5.days in one experiment recently.


The trail and location is this one. There is another location you have not tried called the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex. They have found out that people responding at that location have intact hedonic tone and those who did not, did not respond had anhedonia. The right orbitofrontal cortex is for depression with anhedonia. Some, with commodities like OCD and anxiety also see these symptoms significantly reduced with depression at this location. They do not need a MRI scan to find the location but if you have one it is likely ok.https://www.scienced...924977X17320023

Ok. That was also my impression but I became a little nervous about that it could be depersonalization with a secondary depression. The absence of derealisation and it is only related to being numb/having anhedonia very likely makes it is a major depression. You shall know that we really do not know much about depersonalization compered to depression. That your and "Runtome" treatment options are far better with major depression than with depersonalization that you most likely do not have. If you do not qualify for the criteria for depersonalization you are making you way to a correct treatment much worse and prolonging it by relating your symptoms to depersonalization disorder. 



There is a subtype in depression that do not respond to normal rTMS locations and they are also marked by anhedonia,- feeling no emotions. 60% of them respond to rTMS at the right orbitofrontal cortex despite they have failed at other locations.Major depression is much worser than depersonalization but much easier to treat.

Have you been given any formal diagnosis by the psychiatrists you have been seen by? From what medicine you have tried it seems to me that major depression is the one given. Do you have symptoms of derealisation. The world looks 2-dimentional or flat?

"runtome" have been seen by a German prof. who have done research into depersonalization and written two books about it. He says that he don't have depersonalization disorder. He has major depression with secondary symptoms of depersonalization or anhedonia. This is also something that makes a major depression more difficult to treat. 

To cry a lot is not normal affect. To have vegetative symptoms like changes in appetite, sleep are core symptoms of major depression. 


The locations I want you to try in Italy is for major depression with anhedonia. The locations is called the right orbitofrontal cortex or the right ventromedial prefrontal cortex. This locations have for 4.decades thought to be central in suppressing anxiety to threat and making a numbing state. There is much more reseach done into PTSD and 15% with PTSD have the dissociative subtype with symptoms of derealization and depersonalization. In brains scans of people with the dissociative subtype DP/DR this area have been found overactive. In some studies of depersonalization it is also the case. So, you can likely get rTMS at this location it you have major depression with anhedonia but not if you say you have depersonalization. They will likely not take people with depersonalisation as it is purely understood. But, the location also plays a role in many states that have depersonalization symptoms. I could try this location I would do it.

I am not projecting anything. You can look on peoples profiles when the last made a visit to the site with their profile in use. It is very unlikely that people will visit this site had they been active with making regular comments and the go into a passive visiting this site to see if there is any comments. When people leave this site it usually for good. Their messenger might be set-up in a way that they receives a e-mail when there is a message to them. So, it is only way to contact them when the profile have been passive for years.
