I’m curious. Those of you with Bipolar and/or other mental illness, have you tried ECT treatments? If so, why and how did it go?
I’ve heard a select few say it’s the only thing that has worked for them.
From what I’ve read, though it is no longer barbaric, it still isn’t completely understood as to *why* it works.
So, when I think of ECT, I cringe, but then I remember that most of these meds I take for the Bipolar, there’s not a clear understanding there either as to how and why they help. And i take several every day.
Any feedback or thoughts on this?
