Yesterday I had ECT and this time experienced a bifrontal seizure, seizure on both sides of the frontal lobe. I had been receiving unipolar seizures, just on one side. But since I’m not getting enough lifted mood from those, my doctor suggested bifrontal ECT. The downside to it is a stronger possibility of memory problems. But I’d already been experiencing memory issues with the last couple unipolar ECT treatments, such as forgetting where we keep the mugs
or other kitchen items, or what street we’re on as we drive back from the hospital.
And so I said yes to bifrontal ECT. What more do I have to lose? Maybe my seminary education?
All day yesterday I felt “off” and a bit sick, not my normal self at all. Thoughts were slow and labored. I even took a nap before dinner and still went to bed at 8:30pm.
Now I feel a bit better. Here’s hoping against hope that this does the trick to lift my mood, help me feel better, and set me on the right path. I still am not sure it will but I’m trying to hope.
