  • I’ve had 48+ treatments and have some memory loss that can also be attributed to medication, bipolar, prior drug use, and even environmental things. I had tried many med combinations prior to ECT and if I was able to do more than just get myself out of bed and to work and back perhaps a proper diet and exercise might have helped in the smallest amount. I was days from being catatonic or in a casket. Many people will put me down for my choice to have ECT but without it I would be dead, my husband without a wife, my daughters without their mother. Does it matter that I don’t remember specifics about an event, no. But I can’t blame that on ECT. If I needed it again, sign me up.
