Welcome to the 25th electroconvulsive therapy treatment, or to put it in other words, the first ECT of the year. I can hardly believe I’ve had twenty-five treatments –and it sounds like there’s no really any end in sight at the moment. I asked Dr. F, my ECT psychiatrist, when he thought I would be done with ECT, and he said that I’ll be having treatments monthly for few more months, then every six weeks for a while, and after I have it every two months for some time, then maybe I can stop after that. It’s a good thing I was not looking for it to be over anytime soon, because apparently, it won’t be.
Maybe it’s because I took Lortab for the headache, but I’ve been feeling pretty nauseous all afternoon. After ECT though, Nurse J told me today how much happier and more pleasant I become right after treatment. That was good to hear.
