Episode 63: Electroshock, Low Grade Depression, Terminal Illness

Hello, my friends! Another awesome Q & A for you this week. Couple links that I mentioned in the show. Here's the cognitive rampage podcast: http://adamlowery.com/podcasts/ and here is that episode about TMS therapy that I mentioned: http://psychsessions.com/2017/01/01/ps-039-treating-depression-with-transcranial-magnetic-stimulation-tms/ Anyways, here are the questions I cover: What is electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and is this something I should look into for depression? Should I get treatment when my depression isn't so bad that I have a formal diagnosis? What can I do to make my severe cancer diagnosis and treatment more bearable?  As always you can find my on social @duffthepsych and you can send me your questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com
