> It's been about 11 years of meds, and I'm having a real hard time functioning on them. In fact, as I look back, I always have had a real hard time. If I could have some assurance that there wouldn't be significant irreversible memory loss, I think I'd do it. I am also scared, like you, and I think many others. The thought of putting electricity through your brain is very off-putting.
About two years ago I went through about 20 ECT sessions.Both bilateral and unilateral.During these sessions I went to Disney World with my wife and kids I dont remember even getting on the plane or being at Disney World. Its kind of scarry.Because of this I refused any maintenence ECT sessions. Now I am on several meds and doing fine.
