Danny, are you looking to schedule ECT?

@dannybee One of the worst experiences for me. No longer see anyone in the mental health field and far better without them. Also had a Vegas Nerve Stimulator another disaster as it kept resetting. That has been gone since 2010. Thankful to no longer have my brains toyed with by professionals.
@amandaburnett Well, there you have it from the OGM. I would like to believe there are better trained professions out there somewhere. Mayhap, I am too bullheaded to believe thus. All I know is that is was not right for me. I am more content and far less self-demeaning now.

I guess I've decided not to, and I promised my daughter I wouldn't. So….thanks for asking. Danny

Thanks guys for the answers. It is scary sounding isn't it? But, I've tried so many antidepressants I'm at my wits end. 🤗. Danny
