    Hi Chloe

    It is very frustrating when we feel nothing is working but we have to keep in mind that one day you'll find what works. It took me quite some time and sometimes they do need tweaking if they stop working. 60 ECT?? wow I've never heard of anyone having that many. I've heard from people who have had it that it damages the memory. Your kids certainly would not be better off without you, they need you to teach them and guide them.
    I'm sorry you no longer have faith in the medications/ECT department. I wonder what else they are able of offer? You have nothing to lose by trying something new such as a different type of therapy etc... Best of luck to you :)

    It takes time to find Meds or combo of Meds that will work, and follow directions can't take half because you feel like it, give it a 100% and if not then try again with your doc.

    Can't mess with Meds if you're inconsistent with directions and not following through. that's a lot of people's issues about following directions not just you. A lot folks have this issue. I have issue trying to follow schedule for my Meds and miss some doses here and there but I try.

    Your kids will not be better off without you. Hang in there
