I've begun down the road of trying to get accepted as a candidate for ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) and I have realized I have absolutely no clue how it's going to affect my DID and I've never heard of another persons experience with both. This makes me nervous.

I'm not saying I'm worried it's going to do anything impossible like make my alters disappear, ect, but ECT is just uncharted territory. For example, I think about how anti depressants often have an effect of suppressing communication between alters and so I know for a fact messing with the chemistry in the brain and whatnot can have an impact.

I really want to hear others experiences, if anyone does have any. I want to be prepared if there's any changes that may happen.

I have no clue.

Have you discussed this with your treatment providers?
