Bipolar and ECT Treatments
Glad to hear from you, @mrser52, and that the inpatient time helped. Will you share, if you're comfortable, about what treatment you underwent while there?
As far as the short-term memory loss from the electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), perhaps @aarniek @sirgalahad or @jakedduck1 have some insights on that.
@georgette12 – how are you doing?
@renwald – did you have ECT?

I took these ect treatments a few years ago but now I just use a minimal dosage of antidepressants. However if I did not have a job to keep me busy then I easily fall back into depression
I work in home health care with the elderly. Even though I'm 75!
