Midway through, his story turns personal. It’s a moving and deeply felt talk about relief, redemption, second chances

  1. Amazing how well much the ECT has changed her mental illness, I was especially impressed with the description (from dark night to cloudy day). It is also very cool that she is no longer having to take her antipsychotics anymore and is able to lose the weight.

  3. Getting off the meds is probably what has helped, NOT the fact she had ECT. ECT is a closed head injury. Punch drunk for 4 weeks. Damages your brain and especially insight into the damage.

  5. No, Cheryl, “getting off the meds” probably DID NOT HELP. Please don’t give people bad and unsupported quack advice. It’s very likely ECT DID HELP, as it has been shown to be highly efficacious.

  7. ECT has not been shown to be efficacious. Studies show it gives temporary (4 weeks) euphoria/apathy which wears off and the person finds they still have depression plus brain damage on top.

  9. Actually, ECT can help with depression and some other mental illnesses. It is only temporary, but it still lasts a long time. It’s only meant for severe cases. Just because it has caused brain damage doesn’t mean that it always does. ECT has proven to work about 80% of the time. I’m researching it now for my psychology class. The memory loss goes away most of the time, within a month. Cheryl, please don’t misinform the community about something you haven’t even tried to research.
