Lovely to hear from you. I had six sessions of ECT over a two week period when I was an inpatient. I felt so much better immediately.I have not had any further sessions of ECT since. It was really amazing as I had been so unwell for the previous four months. I am currently on a small dose of a SNRI. My psychiatrist says that as the ECT worked so well for me it will always work if I become really unwell at some stage in the future. This is so reassuring to know.
I would recommend pursuing the possibility of having the ECT if you were approved for it. You will know yourself if it was of Amy benefit to you.
