    experience with ECT treatment

    I have had serious depression since last April, I also has a history of Bi-polo. After the failur trying diffent medication. I have had 8 times of
    ECT treatments in the hospital, which dramatically improved my depression. I feel comming back, getting rid of mask face, much better mood,
    better energy, like comunicate/socialize with people and friends, more active on We-Chat, more confident, the depression is almost gone...

    If you have had serious depression, ECT could be a good option to consider.

    Sorry about the spelling mistakes.

    Best regards,
    Tom

    Thx for this testimonial on ECT Tom. I've been seriously thinking about it because meds are not effective for me. Your experience sounds very promising. My mom (a former nurse) really does NOT want me to try it but I feel it's mostly because she witnessed treatments first hand and she feels it's too harsh. However, it's not her body (or head) and I think most people who are mentally healthy just don't understand us depressed folk and how debilitating it can be.

    There are other posts about ECT but I haven't done a search for links. Others may jump in after Easter and share their experiences.

    Hi AJ,

    It seems no one is interested in ECT, which is very effective treating Depression. What a pity !
