> I myself have had 23 ECTs and each time I've gone in for a round I've come out on the positive side.I have a psychiatrist that I trust and she is the one who administers them. Not everyone has had negative results from this course of treatment.What it comes down to is wether or not you are willing to try anything in your power to get better.This whole psych.drug thing is in itself just a big guessing game anyway. Follow your gut. Good luck,
It was never my intention to impy that everyone has negative results from ECT. I am told on a daily basis about how much all the meds and treatments I have miserably failed are actually helping other people. The "one way road to suicide" comment was in reference to someone who has already failed numerous med trials, as well as ECT treatments. I didn't mean it as a suggestion for anyone who trys ECT at all.
