Yep; I've let it go

From here on in it will be like it didn't happen

While you SCREAM at your woman, there's a man, wishing he could talk softly in her ear...

While you HUMILIATE, OFFEND, & INSULT her,
there's a man flirting with her, & reminding her, how wonderful she is.

While you HURT your woman,
there's a man wishing he could show her love

While you make your woman CRY,
there's a man stealing smiles from her.

Over the last few weeks I've had quite a few ECT treatments. Three a week I think; sometimes I forget things, feeling confused; but my consultant said that will happen

Each time my personal nurse has been with me. She is becoming too intense again

I now suffer intense headaches; obviously from the electric shocks; especially as the are bi lateral (across whole brain, instead of single sphere)

When I suffer headaches throughout the day, my nurse administers Tamazipan injections which relieves the pain & of course, I lose consciousness from the injections

What exactly are they trying to accomplish by doing this to you?

Not sure; mostly across the UK, ECT as a treatment Dave, is no longer utilised in treatment of choice, for consultants

I thought ECT had been banned years ago

When I was in a London psyche unit 1980, ECT was suggested but decided against

But of course with it being a type of draconian treatment...……………

We still don't know everything about the brain; so who knows how much damage to the brain is caused by ECT

Psychologically I feel weird; headaches, nausea, drowsiness, confusion, irritation...……. The latter with my nurse & the fk'd up way she is

Similar with my partner I'm beginning to understand my nurse & her thought processes

I believe the reason she throws herself sexually at me, is due to the domestic violence she suffered & with my partner having suffered the same; she knows I understand

So anyway...……………

As hot as she is...…………….

I am falling for her, I admit. It is taking as lot for me emotionally to cope with her. She knows this & is taking advantage of how I feel

As stated elsewhere on SAS she is intense

Today we were on the beach & yet again she was wearing a revealing bikini

This time she had me

We didn't actually have sex, penetration wise (which being castrated, I couldn't penetrate her, even if I wanted to (which I don't)

But we were in one of the beach huts & snogged. She tried to kiss me as usual with her tongue & I responded.

We didn't go naked, as much as she probably wanted too

So maybe I do have some control, if I can reject her full on

She shared her breasts with me, as I did her with my 'George @ ASDA' sized ones lol

So now we are back at my mate's office online

It now seems our relationship has changed totally

With us so intimate together, there is now no going back; she knows that & I'm sure that was he aim, all the way through; she has gained her goal

So in the beach hut we were intimate together kissing tongues entwined. It is always with me the entwining tongue kissing that traps me emotionally. As if the exchange of saliva is the chemistry to a full blown relationship

My emotions are now in a turmoil thinking about my partner & how she will react when I tell her. I have no choice in telling her. The entire basis of our relationship is trust & honesty. I do know when I tell my partner she will lay into my nurse again, as she did last time she caught us intimate together

I actually said to her:

"Fk off you little scrubber" lol

She said she's not a scrubber

I told her she knows she is so why deny it?

Spending quality time with my partner (& away from Psycho Nurse lol)

Perhaps she'll forget me; hopefully lol

"Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), formerly known as electroshock therapy, and often referred to as shock treatment, is a psychiatric treatment in which seizures are electrically induced in patients to provide relief from mental disorders. The ECT procedure was first conducted in 1938 and is the only currently used form of shock therapy in psychiatry. ECT is often used with informed consent as a last line of intervention for major depressive disorder, mania, and catatonia. ECT machines have been placed in the Class II category (special controls) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1976.

A round of ECT is effective for about 50% of people with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder, whether it is unipolar or bipolar. Follow-up treatment is still poorly studied, but about half of people who respond relapse within 12 months. Aside from effects in the brain, the general physical risks of ECT are similar to those of brief general anesthesia. Immediately following treatment, the most common adverse effects are confusion and memory loss. Among treatments for severely depressed pregnant women ECT is one of the least harmful to the gestating fetus.

A usual course of ECT involves multiple administrations, typically given two or three times per week until the patient is no longer suffering symptoms. ECT is administered under anesthetic with a muscle relaxant. Electroconvulsive therapy can differ in its application in three ways: electrode placement, frequency of treatments, and the electrical waveform of the stimulus. These three forms of application have significant differences in both adverse side effects and symptom remission.

Placement can be bilateral, in which the electric current is passed across the whole brain, or unilateral, in which the current is passed across one hemisphere of the brain. Bilateral placement seems to have greater efficacy than unilateral, but also carries greater risk of memory loss. After treatment, drug therapy is usually continued, and some patients receive maintenance ECT.

ECT appears to work in the short term via an anticonvulsant effect mostly in the frontal lobes, and longer term via neurotrophic effects primarily in the medial temporal lobe."

The above I have copied from a leaflet, my consultant gave me, so I can give informed consent to ECT.

My consultant thinks it could be beneficial. I think so too

Before signing consent my consultant took me to the ECT room to do a test run, so I can see what is involved

I lay on the examination couch, on my back. My wrists were cuffed either side of the couch, along with my ankles, leaving me secured in a spread eagle position, keeping me secure and unable to struggle.

The electric shock is given to my brain with pads either side of my head. My nurse was there with me and held my hand with my wrists secured. Unusually I accepted her doing this. I squeezed her hand to show it's ok. She squeezed my hand in return. I told her I wanted her with me on Wednesday, again holding my hand. Maybe, now, I am ok with her holding my hand. I feel it shows closeness between her & though of course, she knows I don't want a relationship between us. She has tried to talk me out of it though.

I was also given a block to bite into, so I can't bite my tongue, which happens as a reflex, with the electric shock to my brain. The two pads were placed either side of my head; obviously not switched on. I am fully aware I could die, or at least become comatose or brain damaged; but I feel it is worth the risk.

I will be sedated to keep me calm & compliant. I'm conscious though.

I decided today to sign the consent form

I will receive ECT on Wednesday

I phoned my partner we need to talk, but not on the phone. She came in & we went down to the beach. She looked at me wanting to know what I have to say to her

On the beach we hugged & kissed before I told her

She replied:

"Fk off, you could die & then what the fk will I do? If you die I will follow you"

I told her my accounts are quite a lot & it will be for her

Again she pleaded with me not to do it

Now she seems to have accepted it; respecting my wishes
I am just curious: since during ECT they put you to sleep, what kinds of dreams do you have? Do you have nightmares since the electricity is going through your brain?

Not really Causalset; just a blankness during, but awakening confusion

While you SCREAM at your woman, there's a man, wishing he could talk softly in her ear...

While you HUMILIATE, OFFEND, & INSULT her,
there's a man flirting with her, & reminding her, how wonderful she is.

While you HURT your woman,
there's a man wishing he could show her love

While you make your woman CRY,
there's a man stealing smiles from her.

never say never!! the pain is too much..never mind the other problems i deal with anxiety, ocd, ptsd, etc......rTMS did nothing it was a waste of money..so my last option was ECT and it worked far more than any other medication had...yes at first the memory loss is annoying, but the more you space out the treatments..the better it gets..
