I had therapy a few hours ago. My therapist mentioned that she thinks i need something more to keep me from relapsing. I asked her if she meant ect, she actually said yes? I dont feel good thinking i might need that. She said shes going to talk to my psychiatrist about it and see what she thinks.
In my opinion, stay far away from ECT.
Whys that? I only know of the good since im a psych student
It screwed up my memory.
ECT is scary. I would never do that, but that’s just me.
My therapist spent our last session continually asking me to identify signs that I’m heading towards a relapse and work on an intervention plan to calm myself down. I kept telling her there’s no need, I don’t have episodes any more. It was weird how insistent she was though.
I’m surprised he/she didn’t tell you to socialize more. That’s what I usually get told, although it’s not as much of an option during covid.
My therapist doesnt offer a lot of advice like that. She focuses on what i want to do about the problem. I really like her
ECT permanently affected my memory. I’m totally against it
Glad I am not alone.
Yikes good to know…
What is ECT? 15
Oh my goodnesss! I didn’t know they still did things like that!
I heard its more commonly used for depression than anything else now
