This is very troubling--the worsening of depression and your psychiatrist "firing" you. Did s/he give you a referral for another psychiatrist??? This is similar to what my psychiatrist almost did though it seems he was going to give me time to find someone else (on my own). What is this all about????

What does the doctor administering the ECT say about the worsening depression? I am sure you aren't the first person to report this. Do they think the depression will lift after more ECT or what??? I realize I am asking a lot of questions, but the whole senario does not sound good---getting more depressed and at the same time losing your psychiatrist.
