I don't know why ECT would be recommended either. I recently did ECT, and I wish I had not. I will not tell you what to do, but I will recommend you consider a second opinion from another doctor. ECT is a very drastic step to take, and I am not aware of anyone who has not had problems of one sort or another afterwards, problems with memory. I would hope this therapist is not recommending ECT thinking that you will forget about how upset you are about your brother.

My brother died last July, and he was the last of my immediate family. It sucks to be an orphan of sorts. I have a husband too, but he is not very supportive especially now. He recently lost his mother. Have you thought about going to a support group for grief counseling? I am not suggewsting you replace therapy, but I wonder if something like that would help. I did that after my mother died.
