> Hi Maxime,
> You know if you are "considering" ECT, you could try RTMS first, it is for lack of a better way to put it less "invasive". Also I am curious what you have, but you don't have to disclose if you don't want to. Wonder if you have bipolar like me.

Hi. I have been diagnosed with unipolar depression and bipolar depression *roll eyes*. I think it's because some meds have made me manic, but I have never had a hypomanic or manic episode on its own. I'm 37 and I have suffered since my teens, but I only sought treatment in my late 20's.

RTMS is available in Canada really. I know there are test studies going on. I really don't think I would ever consent to ECT ... I was just feeling really desperate when I wrote that. I did try to become part of a DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) study though. It's invasive, but shows a lot of promise.

Maxime
