I had these in 1996 because no medication was working for me for Depression and let's face it, medical knowledge in the field of Depression was pretty archaic even then..I lost short term memory, random erasure of long term memory, loss of ability to speak which I'm sure made some people happy :), loss of ability to read, write, spell. I couldn't not take care of myself, feed myself, bathe myself.......I was a "walking" Zombie and it took me nine months to regain any reasonable functioning. I also had a stroke in the middle of one of these treatments. To me, it is barbaric. Today is the first time since 1996 that I have spoken to anyone else that has been through this process and I realized that for 12 years, I have not dealt with the anger towards. What about the rest of you?
