Has anyone out there who's willing to talk about it had ECT treatments and do you think that they helped you? I've been on meds for depression since my teens and I am now 52 and nothing has ever seemed to work for me. My new therapist has told me about some kind of "implant" that's supposed to help for people that haven't been helped by meds and therapy alone, but I haven't heard anything about this. My shrink doesn't believe in ECT for people with Bi-Polar, but once again my Therapist who I really respect says that she's had lots of patients that have gotten good results from ECT...at this point I'm willing to do anything to get better. Every night I pray for death and every morning I cry because I'm still alive. My boyfriend of 7 years left me because of my depression and now says he wants to get back together but when I was making arrangements to go up to see him over the 4th of July and told him that I was getting a hotel room so we could be alone (he's staying with friends he told me that he doesn't want to stay with me at the hotel), I really don't understand this at all. He tells me that he still loves me, but this doesn't sound like a man in love does it? So I would appreciate any input from anyone about ECT and the results that they did or didn't get. Thank you in advance for your attention and help in this matter. Psyche
