Not recomended

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Depression and anxiety can be very bad and disabling especially when it is associated with life stresors as well. I would suggest not to go ahead with Fisher Wallace stimulator as it may not be this helpful. This never had any solid clinical support among the doctors and results were not encouraging.
In missouri you may contact Dr. XXXXXXX Lauriello, MD, at University of Missouri School of Medicine, One Hospital Drive, MA204, DC018.00, olumbia, MO 65212.
He is an excellent doctor and armed with strong academics I guess this should be the best place for you. Stick to proper medical treatment and the medicines will surely benefit you.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
