In furtherance of my term-coining goals I’d like to introduce to you today a novel psychiatric label: the Young Frankenstein Delusion. It consists of the primitive belief, held by many psychiatrists and other licensed brutes, that applying a powerful electric discharge to the brain can bring relief to the wretched and the despairing. Moreover, many of the these modern day electrical wizards will claim not only spiritual kinship, but also obscure blood bonds to the early, romantic pioneers of electrical experimentation.
I’m kept alive by a device that regularly zaps my heart. More electrodes? Why not.
I touched an electric fence once. Felt like I got kicked in the face lol
I went through a wire fence some years back without realizing one of the middle wires had been electrified. Oh, and I was wearing shorts because it was a hot day. Guess where it got me?
I did over 100 transcranial magnetic therapy sessions though. I’m still alive and kickin
But surely the experience increased your mental wellbeing in some way.
Right in the snickerdoodle eh
Yes it did improve my functioning
My pdoc asked if I would do ect. But I said no.
Its a lot safer now though than it was before.
@LevelJ1 I meant the fence. Anyway, I spoke against electricity (ECT), not magnetism.,
PS. Actually it’s not safer now at all, just less painful.
Ah, all I know is ect can cause irreversible memory loss. So it’s just not worth it for me.
They also are doing magnetic seizure therapy trials at place near me. I don’t want to do that either tho
No less logical that your usual anti-psychiatry trash you’re wont to post.
It’s not the best option but some ect seems to work for those with intractable depression for example. Yes it’s brutal and it’s not good with memory loss etc but it’s not as abrubt as previous things. I’m closing this simply because your trying to make a point and I’m not sure that is totally healthy with some context.
