Is it Really Deserted Now? Or Are Others Lurking?

Posted by Phillipa on June 13, 2014, at 9:37:13

Seems not many posting lately neither here or on facebook. Is social media going out of style? And are all feeling so well they are out and about socializing or traveling on well deserved vacations? Phillipa

I figured it being summer was helping some of us feel better and get out more. and not spend so much time online.

but i got done with my third session of ECT just a bit ago. this time was a bit more intense. i woke up after it was done and didnt know why i was even there. but it came back iito me afyer a bit. though my head still feels a bit funny.
no good news with it making me feel better yet, though.

id like to talk to someone who has done ECT to see how many treatments they had to do before they started getting good results.

Poser I think so too. Even our ebay sales are down & the retail stores where purchase our merchandise sales are way down. I know a lot around me have had operations too. And Kids just out of school vacations too.

I think you should post a thread to see how long it took to feel better. So a bit more confusion today? Phillipa

Oh yeah. it was a different doc that applied the treatment this time. i dont know if that has anything with the confusion being a bit worse this time, or if its just the effects of the 3 treatments i had this week building off each other.

but im set to have 12 treatments in all. 3 a week.

but so far this hasnt been anything like some of the ECT horror stories you read about. Other than the temporary bits of confusion, it hasnt been a problem at all. though i am kinda getting worried that the main therapeutic many get from ECT is the memory loss, in that it mainly helps people forget why theyre depressed, and thats not what i need at all. i just need to have a full range of emotions again.. I just havent noticed any other effect from it yet, besides memory loss.

Poser unilateral isn't it? I watched bilateral done once and the patient had severe memory loss. So glad this isn't happening to you. Phillipa

Actually it is Bilateral. but i think its not causing severe memory loss because its a newer form of ECT that uses an "Ultra Brief" pulse.

I read the admin board the other day. If one reason is needed. Like you say, there are probably a number.
