Facebook

Sometimes a social/peer group is entertaining or recreational. Those who were electroshocked can benefit from two closed groups (applying members are screened) who share practical helps from members who have learned a lot (the hard way) about meeting the challenges of life after electroshock.

Facebook has a closed group where friends caregivers or patients are welcome to share/learn named “The archaeology of ECT”. A therapeutic focus.

There is also an older FB group, closed & active and helpful with a global focus … named “Surviving electroshock – Global support group for ECT survivors”. Some here are reformers/activists.

Professional Help

Kathleen Marsocci, has been wonderful in helping me through the themes and detail of using WordPress for this site. If you want help with your web page, do contact her. Created by Kat shows a few of the sites she created.

Although I am biased toward self-care, recovery from electroshock can be challenging. The concomitant iatrogenic Complex PTSD and always induced coffea tosta state often calls for professional help. Many years ago I met Dr Marc Cutler at an herbal class. His majestic health practice has helped several electroshock patients recover from that devastating trauma.

A homeopath can aid recovery.  Check with friends in your area to see who provides the most helpful remedy and support.
