I have received five ECT treatments.and the only changes I have noticed are memory loss. it has put a strain on my marriage, almost to the point of divorce.I can not remember when or where my wife and I were married.or even child memories of growing up.I am still having the same if not worse mental health problems that ECT was supposed to help with.I am at a point were I don’t know what to do except check myself back in the psychiatric hospital.doing this will put even Moore stress on my marriage but at this point the only alternative is to end my life.
