There’s a great article in the Spring 2010 issue of Stanford Medicine Magazine titled: No longer shocking: Electroconvulsive Therapy is a Lifesaver, by Ruthann Richter.
It’s a story about a physician named Henry who came on a brink of suicide as he contemplated his death on the Golden Gate Bridge. This is about Henry’s experience with ECT and about the state of electroconvulsive therapy.
This is well worth the read (not long, either). I felt the article reinforced/re-engaged my commitment to keep going with this treatment.
