ECT ( Electro Convulsive Therapy ) Treatment
I've suffered from an Eating Disorder, Anorexia being my primary since the age of 17 and i'm now 22. I'm currently struggling with it and going to be going in patient for treatment at some type of facility soon but desperately need medical stabilization first before I even begin any type of teatment, but of course keep avoiding it due to the ED voice in my head. I also suffer from a lot of psychological illnesses such as severe depression, anxiety, ocd, and bi polar. For years now I have wanted ECT teatment because even when my Eating Disorder habits are not acting up I can never seem to be happy and am always struggling immensely with my depression and other symptoms although my mom was always against it up until now. I have been on several different medications which most never work and if they do they will only work up until a certain point then i'll build up a tolerance for them and i'm back to square one of it not working anymore. My mom was always against the idea up until now. I am starting to begin doing thorough research on it as I know it's a huge decision and life altering one at that and isn't something to be taken lightly. Basically, my question to you all is.. Has anyone on here with any Eating Disorder ever received the ECT treatment? if so, what was the outcome for you?
