Hi from South Africa,
I suffered both Alcoholism and Depression and was only brought back to reality after receiving Sleep Therapy and ECT (Shock Treatment). I have a blog at http://alcoholism-alifesentence.blogspot.com which tells the whole story. Not pretty but there is always hope. Let me know what you think.
Cheers

Hi Alanb -

:welcome: to the site, I like the beard - Your story sounds interesting - but I need to read through more of your Blog before I pass comment. I think people would read your post without the need to post the same one in 6 different places on this forum though.

Hi Alanb - welcome to the MHF. :welcome:

I'd be interested to hear more about your experiences of ECT. From your post it seems that they were positive. We've had a thread going in the treatments section of the forum where the experience was, you could say, more neutral. Anyway - would be great to hear from you.

Best wishes!
