I have schizo affective disorder and an 'unspecified' personality disorder and 12 years ago went through a particularly long period of suicidal depression. I was admitted as an inpatient and received ECT - bilateral, 3 times a week for 4 weeks. It sucked everything out of me, life, soul and memory.
I have recently read that the amount, duration and bilateral ECT is above the recommended guidelines and can cause permanent injury.
Still suffering and now also have physical health probs too.
