Yes definitely. In fact I talked about ECT extensively yesterday with my family doctor and even my family doctor thinks ECT is an awesome idea for me. He claims it should be used as a "first line" depression treatment but isnt because of the stigma and such. Right now Im working on getting my BP back under control and as soon as that is done I will be having ECT. Sometime in the next two months I guess...very possibly by the end of April.
