    Hi Pat, it's many, many years since I had my ECT treatments but I remember feeling terrible for a long time afterwards.  Unfortunately my memory loss didn't improve with time and I still have terrible long term memory.  This isn't the case with everyone so don't let that trouble you.

    How terrible for you to suffer the heart failure during ECT, were there any lasting effects from that? 

    My advice would be to talk to your doctor about how you are feeling, if you haven't already done so.

    Poor you, I feel so sad for you, I hope things improve soon, keep us posted.

    Pat xx

      Thank you. Im just different now since the ECT dont really know how to explain it other than feeling weird family and friends have noticed it to. Hoping with time short term memory will come back. And I'll stop acting and feeling so weird. I appreciate your input and glad you doing ok. ECT can be a wonderful thing for some
