I have NOT had ECT but I did have Electromagnetic Therapy. EMT is a newer treatment for depression. I found that it worked quite well and it appeared that the other patients were reporting similar results. It is something worth looking into if EMT would be an option for you. Best of luck.
I realize your question is several years old but I am 42 yrs old and have struggled with depression on and off since adolescence. I completed my intensive ECT about 4 months ago. The headaches WERE brutal but overall my experience was wonderful. The staff was amazing and I felt like 30 years of baggage literally disappeared. That state of almost euphoria has dissipated but I am FAR better off than I was prior to ECT. It is not perfect by any means but I can honestly say that it saved my life
