I am so pleased that you checked-in with Connect, @mrser52. I'm glad you are feeling better. Did the staff at Pine Rest offer you any suggestions for getting your short-term memory back again?

No, they did not. And at the ECT clinic they didn't know either, they said it depended on the person, everyone is different. And they also said that memory loss didn't happen until after the 6th treatment and I said there was always a first time for everything. So I don't think they believed me about my short term memory loss and how it made my depresstion worse. I am wondering if they shocked my brain to much of a dose. I am thinking about having a MRI scan to make sure that my brain tumor is still ok.
