Hi there. I have a serious question to ask of you all. Has anyone here ever had ECT? My doctor (psychiatrist) recommended it for me a couple of days ago-- yet again, for my depression. I have been on so many depression medicines over the past three years; at least 20 (seriously). I'm sure that's why she "pulled that folder out of her desk, yet, once again".... Well, here I am lost as ever, trying to make a decision greater than trying to change out of my pajamas before my husband gets home from work. If anyone here has had this treatment, or has an opinion on the treatment, I'd be quite receptive to hear it. I'd gone to a "mental health chat room" earlier and the people there were so flipant and perhaps over-dramatic about it. So far, I've only read horror stories about memory loss, etc. Any help is appreciated from my desperate heart.
