My psychiatrist keeps raising two questions - 'have you ever taken Lithium' and 'have we talked about ECT?'.
So, I have tried to do some research on ECT and Bipolar. Not much to read and nothing to tell me more than it probably wouldn't hurt. I suppose the reason for the line of questioning is because of the distinct lack of progress over the last few months. That he's trying to consider what else we can try that I haven't done for the last 15 years. But I really want to know from anyone who's experienced ECT just what it did for them. Yes it helped you, didn't help, made no difference, just what can it do for Bipolar depression.
If I do make a decision for treatment, I want to be informed.
