Shock Treatments

I had a bunch of shock treatments a while back. Just wondering if anyone else has.

Electric Shock treatments are a treatment for depression. You have a general anaesthetic, then doctors pass an electric current through your head causing you to have a seizure and for some reason this helps some people with depression. It helped my depression a little bit.

I don't remember a lot about it, partly because it can affect your memory. I remember having sticky gunk in my hair from where the electrodes were placed. My memory was affected a bit. For a while I used to wake up each morning in my own bed and panic because I didn't know where I was.
