    it might help to write down a few questions that you have about it and go to your doctor with it.

    here is some info from the mayo clinic, a source i would definitely trust: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/electroconvulsive-therapy/MY00129

    you can also look at this longer article on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electroconvulsive_therapy

    my friend “the badger” (i know him personally but don’t know if he uses his real name on his blog) talks quite a bit about ECT – here http://theemperorhasnotoque.blogspot.com/search/label/ECT

    hope that helps!
