Re: Ect and finding some Red again

Mumma little Red fucked things up big time. @greenpea
Little Red was just scared and hurt and angry. They didn't mean for anyone to get in trouble, especially themselves.
They want to tell your they're sorry they tried again and just have no hope.
This centaur is scared they fucked the chance of something changing in the future. (Ect) coz they given up and had no hope.


Also guess whose boyfriend decided to dump them when they told them they were in hospital yesterday.

Re: Ect and finding some Red again

Hi @The-red-centaur sorry things aren’t going so well for you right now.

I have has ECT this year and I also had it several years ago.

You have it under anaesthetic so you don’t feel anything  but you can wake up with a headache. 

It has helped me with psychosis but I’m not so sure about the depression. You can have 2 types with one stronger than the other. I had both and the stronger one has affected my memory so I stopped having it. I don’t know if that’s been a good decision.

Its up to you what you decide and I don’t regret having it but it is a short term “cure” to help get over the acute stage of psychosis and depression.

And I am sorry about this too. That's not the sort of person who sticks by you when times are tough. 

 

Sending you many gentle hugs, and holding hope for you... Heart

Re: Ect and finding some Red again

Hi @The-red-centaur 

 

Sounds like you are feeling anxious about your next big step Red. That makes sense to me.  I really hope you are able to get some tranquility this weekend. And I am sure the forum members as well as the team will wish you all the best.

take care

Re: Ect and finding some Red again

Sorry about the previous post. I'm safe. Hospital is just getting to me. Lack of sleep and external triggers are messing with my head. I'm not thinking straight and post without thinking sometimes.
