So my Doctor wants me to give ECT a try. I have issues with depression, but I'm apparently bipolar. I also have issues with Aspergers, with Anxiety and with Obsessive Compulsive disorder as well. What I've read suggests that ECT can work for depression, but may not work for the anxiety or obsessive thoughts. And my understanding from my conversations with my Doctor...is that the key to the depression for me...is the obsessive thoughts: they feed the anxiety, and the anxiety feeds the depression. Here's the thing though: my world is already so small, I'm afraid of the hazards of long term memory loss. And I repress myself A LOT: things that bother me, I hold it in...I have done this for a long time. I'm afraid I'll emerge from ECT...unable to repress the things that currently make me very frustrated at times. I need advice from anyone whose had ECT: would you recommend it for others? Would you recommend it for someone like me?
