Feeling weird after ECT

Posted by @notsosunnyinflorida in Just Want to Talk, Nov 6, 2012

I've had depression since I was 10 years old and I am now 36. I just began having ECT treatments after the failure of numerous medications. I have only had three treatments and was wondering how others felt in the beginning, and through the whole process?

I know it's not the best adjective, but I feel "weird" like something is off, something is missing, or a part of me died. Maybe empty is a better word. I just feel lost! I was hoping others could tell me how they initially felt, I know my depression is better and I'm not having panic attacks, but maybe other people felt like this too?

Any feedback would help in any way! Thanks

I have ECT treatments too. When my depression was just starting to lift I did have that empty feeling but quickly improved. ECT has been great for me.
