I am sitting in an uncomfortable chair, five small electrodes fixed to my head to monitor my brain waves, for my first session of cranial electrotherapy stimulation with an Alpha-Stim.
At first nothing happens. Then I feel the world pitch ever so slightly backwards and suddenly I’m aware of a warm, pulsing sensation at the back of my neck. I burst into tears.
I have cried a lot in my lifetime. I have cried in public and in private. I have sat at my desk and leaked quiet, uncontrollable tears. I have welled up and wept to family and friends. I have howled a wounded, pitiful sound that shames.
