As with my depression and OCD after six treatments it was gone for a time back in 2009. It helped me again in April of this year after suicide attempt number eight. I am feeling good once again thank God!!!

Was working for me back in 2009. I had it again while in the hospital back in April of this year and it seemed to help me once again. I was starting "maintenance" ECT, but I decided to discontinue it because I am feeling very good right now. If I feel myself "slipping" it is still an option that is open to me.

ECT has made a huge difference in how I feel, and it began working much more quickly than meds would. I didn't experience much memory loss or confusion, though I did get a few headaches, and tend to feel tired afterwards.

This was the thing that pulled me out of the depression. Still take meds but no longer badly depressed.
