Quote from: Rick on September 02, 2011, 08:57:29 AMMy depression and suicidal tendancies were so bad at one point this summer, I agreed to go for something called ECT - shock treatment. It's a LOT milder than it is portrayed in TV movies like One Flew Over The Cukoos Nest. Some famous people who did ECT includes Kitty Dukakis, Terry Bradshaw, and Tammy Wynette. Usually you do about 12 sessions of ECT, but I had adverse reactions to the anesthetics and had to be intubated twice when I stopped breathing. I only did 5 sessions, not enough to make a difference.I'm on a boatload of meds, go weekly for CBT, and meet the psychiatrist every 3 weeks to adjust meds. Right now the biggest problem is increasing anxiety and panic attacks. The anxiety is so bad 2 of the last 3 nights I couldn't sleep a wink. My pillow was soaked with sweat.Hey - I do really want to thank and applaud those that have spoke out in this thread. It's good (although bad) to know people like me aren't alone, and we can share what we're going through.

Are you fit or out of shape?I can relate to a lot of the feelings expressed here back when I was overweight. The combination of nutrition and physical exertion has done wonders for my own personal happiness. I notice, on days that I get my morning workout in, I am in a much better mood throughout the day then days that I take off.
Quote from: TheMightyOdin on September 02, 2011, 09:32:14 AMI think simple carbs (sugar) has a profound influence on my mood.I don't think physical fitness is the answer but maybe it's part of the answer?
