ECT Going Fine

Posted by blueberry on September 29, 2006, at 21:13:35

I have 2 ECT sessions behind me. No prob. I must admit it is actually a lot easier and a lot less scary to me than starting some new prescription pill. They say I need minimum 6 sessions to see any improvements begin.

One lady I was waking up next to who had her ECT just before me is 89 years old.

Just a few muscle aches in the legs is about all the side effects I am getting, with maybe just a little bit of spotty forgetfulness here and there, nothing any worse than meds do.

I cannot judge effectiveness yet. It's too early. If I could know in advance it was going to work and I had to make a decision right now...drugs forever or ECT maintenance forever...ECT wins hands down.
