A family friend in her late 30s had good results with ECT for her TRD

Really quite a story, again one you hear so often about deep suffering under the surface. Her personality is not at all that of someone who could be experiencing depression. That was where I was first introduced to the concept of your soul as a bucket- when empty it is very empty, starkly empty, and when full it positively overflows.

One of the stranger twists is she is a physician herself. She had to take an LOA and things were very sketchy for her family there for about 6 months but she is riding a nice wave of recovery now. Like your son she had tried all the therapies there are and as a last resort tried ECT up here at VCU.
