Poor B is being tormented by paranoid thoughts that are out of control. She feels she has to submit to ECT again. I hate seeing how this archaic, barbaric treatment is still in use. It turns her into a zombie + causes memory loss.
Please help me to provide the right kind of help to her. One problem is she lives an hour away. Her psychiatrist wants to continue the treatments on an outpatient basis for several weeks after the initial ECT is done in the hospital. I don't think it's safe to leave her alone, but I can't be with her all the time either. I pray for a solution that will be best for all concerned.
Please protect her brain from furthe injury. I think this decision is a mistake, but I understand her desperation to find relief from the torment.
In Your precious name, amen.
