I've heard about this but, it freaks me out. Has anyone had this done, or does anybody know anything about it? Electro shock to the brain scares the crap out of me!

Has someone suggested you do ECT ?? You can read about ECT in Dr. Peter Breggin's books. One of my illustrators has been given ECT monthly for over a year. Possibly two. And he has no memory what so ever. He just keeps repeating himself.

On the other hand, I knew a woman active in a depression support group that had ECT just a few times and it stopped her severe depression.

The only other experience I had regarding ECT was I met a man who wrote a book about how ECT ruined his life because they gave him so many sessions of it.

Yes, twice this has been suggested to me. After reading you post, I don't want anything to do with it.
