Hello @mrser52,

I appreciate the update on your ECT treatments. At Connect, we learn from each other and you have provided the members of Connect with an interesting experience in treating Bipolar disorder.
How many ECT treatments did you have before you began to notice the short-term memory loss? Did your doctor feel that some of that memory problem would be restored after discontinuing treatment?
Also, just wondering, and only share as you are comfortable doing so, do you feel that the treatments you had helped with your bipolar disorder?

I had 4 ECT treatments, when I noticed that my depression was getting worse and that my short memory was gone. No the ECT treatments did not help me they made me worse. And the ECT clinic that I went to said they don't know when my short term memory will return. I'm sorry that it took me so long to respond back, I forgot that I had asked about this treatment. I had my treatments done a Pine Rest Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dose anyone have any answers for me? These treatments also makes me feel suicidal, which I am battling just about every day. I am so very depressed.
