  • Ride the Lightning

    I have mentioned in the past that I have treatment-resistant clinical depression. On Wednesday I am going to have my first dose of Electro-convulsive therapy which has a very high success rate. It also has scary side effects involving amnesia. One lady lost about 30 years of memories in an extreme case. Please say a little prayer for me when they zap my brains three times a week for the next three weeks.

    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

                Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

                    Is there anybody else who can post your success through this process?

                        I will post ASAP ... unless I'm dead or have lost 20 years of memories I guess

                          We will add you to our Church's prayer list -- would you mind PM'ing me a first name so I don't have to explain to the little old blue haired ladies that we're praying for a Hamster? (they would do it, for sure!)

                            I will be praying. I know that this must've been a hard decision for you to come to, but I understand why.
