No.
They just wanted to get rid me
It was very obvious!
They lied as well.

But I don't care because I got away without being tube fed

The doctor said if I don't respond to the clozapine soon then she'll be considering ECT

I'm really not sure.
They are going to print out some information on it for me
I don't know much about it apart from it's electric shocks or something.

It's good that you'll be getting some info about it. Remember you can ask questions if there are things you don't understand etc.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

Please feel free to ask me about anything. I am on maintenance ECT.

Thanks both

I'm going to look up some information online.
What I really want to know is how they actually do it.
Like how do they sedate you and stuff?

I fainted again.
Managed to fall into my wardrobe and gave the poor nurse a fright.
Im ok though.
Just told to stay sitting up on my bed for a while.
Been asleep most of the day

The procedure itself is not too involved. When I go in (I am still having it monthly as an outpatient), I walk into the procedure room and lie down on a stretcher. They put a blood pressure cuff on, insert the IV needle, and then I am out. While I am out they apply electrodes and give the shock so I can have a seizure, and once the seizure happens they wheel the stretcher into the recovery room. Then I wake up in the recovery room. They ask me if I know where I am and what I had done (yes and yes), I wait awhile and then go.
Speaking of which, though, you should make sure they know you have had seizures in the past. I am not a doctor and am not qualified to tell you these things, but just be sure that you have given them all your information. Also, as you read, you will see that there are two different types of ECT - unilateral and bilateral. Ask your doctor about this.

I’ve never had ECT but I have witnessed a clinic on placement and it was nowhere near what I thought it would be like- it was so much more relaxed and peaceful. Patients had the sedative and were unconscious and during the treatment they twitched a little, mainly toes curling or fingers twitching. They then moved to recovery and within quarter of an hour they were awake, although very sleepy. They seemed to be quite sleepy for a day or so and complained of headache which was managed with otc style pain relief. Most seemed to have 10-12 sessions. Most people seem to have it for depression though from what I’ve seen but I know recently it’s been shown to be effective for psychosis and even PD type diagnoses.

Patients has to stay for a period of time after- I think an hour or so and have biscuits and a drink and then would go back to the wards where Obama would be 15min minimum. Not sure it’s the same everywhere (this was Surrey/Hampshire area but I doubt it’s too different. Problem with coming off clozapine is that for some people it can become less effective if you come off it then go back on etc etc. Not everybody, but certainly some.

What Pomegranate has to say about the wait time and the sleepiness/headache is true, at least for me. I usually spend the day relaxing/sleeping (we're lucky my husband has that day off and can watch the kids!). The headache goes away with OTC pain meds.

Doesn't sound too bad so far
I'm hoping the meds will work first though

Been in bed all day
Only got up once in the morning to get phone and once at 5 to get meds.
I am so so tired and drained.
I don't think I feel fine anymore

Its not the food and drink that is the problem.
I need to starve out the contamination by not eating and drinking.
