> Have you considered ECT? I don't understand why, if ECT is supposed to be the most effective thing out, why then are so many people on this board (including myself) stuggling for so long with medications

... mainly it's about procrastination... i mean if god told you you could make a full recovery by enduring some mediorce inconvenience, i'm sure we would, being depressives, ruminate the inconvenience into a major terror... and though perhaps accepting it... constantly put it off... expecting that MAYBE tomorrow our medications will magically kick in...

i think ECT uses anaethetic, and they say like any other operation there is a tiny chance you can die from complications....

so if i am ever considering suicide i wonder if this might not be the best way to go -- either you get a clean death, or much more likely you come out of things with a big smile on your face...

... i always get a warm glow when i remember my father telling me of his time in the hospital, when patients would come in suffering, cowering in the corner, have ECT, and magically come out happy and peaceful and social... ECT is magic! ... ECT is a miracle! ...
