Should I have ECT?

This is a question that you will have to answer yourself. Every person's situation is unique, and it is not my place to tell you whether or not you should have ECT. The best I can do is tell you to talk with others who have had ECT (visit the message board, read entries from the 1st Person Project), and read as much as you can about ECT from all perspectives.

If you're visiting this website and are considering ECT, you very likely have questions that have not been answered by your health care provider. Demand answers to your questions, and become an educated consumer. If your doctor becomes angry or defensive that you are asking questions, you might want to consider that a red flag and seek a second opinion.
