> I had ECT myself 6 months ago and even though it didn't work, in fact it made me feel worse because of the side effects, I still think it should always remain an option. From what some people have said, it's a life saver and they depend on it in their constant battle with depression. I do agree though that testing for long-term repercussions is important.

I had very mixed results with ECT, as well as many other treatments. In fact, considering that I'm treatment resistant I'd had mostly negative results with all treatments. But I would never deny anyone else access to those treatments if they claimed it worked for them. I can see where that sentiment would come from however since a few treatments have played a part in bringing me to the brink of death, and when there one can get quite angry and think that no one else should try it.
