ECT, commonly known as ‘shock therapy,’ has been used to successfully treat various illnesses since the late 1930s and is still in use around the world today. Famous for causing memory loss to some degree, ECT suffers a good deal of misconception about how it works and what it does and doesn’t do.
In this memoir about the ins and outs of this controversial treatment, K. Rose Quayle chronicles the pitfalls and triumphs of losing the past and choosing to gain the future. Perfect for those who’ve gone through ECT, those contemplating choosing ECT and anybody curious in-between.
At age 32 K. Rose Quayle underwent Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) for Bipolar Depression. She writes on her experiences with memory loss and cognitive dysfunction and maintains that a practical approach is best to getting back to one’s life and excelling with mental illness. She resides in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and The Zoo.
