Depression has always been the least severe of my conditions (OCD, GAD and psychological baggage from physical abuse) but it has been intense and immobilizing for about sixteen months now. I've gone through two rounds of ECT in the past- ten treatments the first time, eight the second. The experience was miserable. The intense headaches and confusion from the ECT along with the whole psychiatric ward experience of strict, sometimes humiliating rules, confinement, boredom, tedious groups, and insomnia. I have been trying different antidepressants, taking fish oil capsules (omega 3 fatty acids) and getting almost daily intense aerobic exercise. I seem to feel only the slightest relief from this regimen and my psychiatrist, sort of old school, swears by ECT. I honestly don't know if my ECT treatments did help lift my depression because my past depressive episodes never lasted more than several weeks each time. Any experiences good or not with ECT here?
