I got ECTs done last January-February and I felt like I was cured for nearly a year. I had 12 treatments and started to feel great after the 6th one. The doctor warned me I may need maintenance ECTs in the future - maybe even near future. But now I have no medical insurance and cannot possibly afford more treatments. I need them badly - I am starting to feel like I did before ECTs - depressed, suicidal, manic, worthless, hopeless, the list goes on and on. Just wondered what others' experiences with ECTs have been and is there anywhere (like an organization or charity) that helps unemployed (due to illness) people like me pay for such things? Also, if you had ECTs, how soon after did you need maint treatments, how many were needed, and did they work? Thanks for any input :)
