worked but lost my memory and it was worse the 2nd time around

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.
