Hi i no it sounds scary but when i was hospitalised 13 years ago and none of the medication was working i was told i had 2 have ect. In fact my family were told if they didnt agree 2 it they wud section me and force me 2 have it. I can honestly say that it was the best thing i ever had and over half a dozen treatments i began 2 respond and climb out of the depression. It is a very safe treatment and importantly it really works.... go for it!xxxx

Hi Violets,<br />
<br />
I suffer from depression but have never had electric shock therapy, and I hope I never need it. <br />

I will read through your profile shortly, but regardless please dont give up. There are hundreds of EPers who will talk to you, and all want to help. <br />

I get through life by taking efexor, and drugs do seem to work for many, but i know that this is troublesome while you are without a job. <br />
<br />
Please PM me, so we can talk more. <br />

Hold on, help is at hand.
