Ect experiences?

Post by Miya on Tue Jan 21, 2014 10:11 am

Hi
Am new on here and am looking for support and anyone who would be willing to share their experiences about ect. My dad is due to start treatment next week and it is quite disconcerting, frightening even. Such a huge thing even though we have loads of info. This is the last possible option left for him. He has agitated depression, chronic and severe anxiety and is merely existing, has been nearly a decade of every treatment therapy, medication under the sun and he has only gotten worse.
Have read many different experiences and they all vary so much. It is hard to see him like this but also has been so, so long he has been 'absent' from our lives, it is a very long story. I feel bad saying it has been and is hard and exhausting having to live with dad's mental illness but it really does take it's toll on us too, being 'the parent' for so long but at the same time so helpless. I help him as much as i can and more than my three siblings who are not do involved. I'm just a bit overwhelmed tight now with it all:-( any help??
