Default Anybody ever deal with ETC?

This is basically "shock therapy". Has anyone ever had any dealings with it? My husband has had 5 treatments now and it's done NOTHING good. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind. I know it's HIM that has the major issue to deal with, the depression, the confusion, the lack of any desire to do ANYTHING...but I'm really suffering through this myself and am feeling very, very, very alone. Where before our relationship was about 70% me and 30% him in household tasks, now it's 99% me and 1% him and I'm feeling drained. DRAINED! I need to see a light at the end of this tunnel and I do not, do not see it.

The running family members hither and yon is really taking its toll on this homebody!

And when do I get to have my breakdown?

Sorry! I'm just...drained. I have one friend I can talk to, but I don't like to complain in real life because that gets old. I need her when I really NEED her and don't want to overplay the drained card, if you know what I mean. My family all thinks everything is "hunky dorey" because it's easier that way. They already don't like DH so this would not help but could only hinder. And his family thinks it's all my fault. So...

I've come here!

I had done ECT treatments back in 2008,...did about 8-9 sessions and it was extremely helpful along with my haculactions.that saved me.

Am sorry about the stress you are having...Stay strong!! Wishing you and hubby the best...Congrats on your weight loss!!
