A little melodramatic; ECT is done under anesthesia and is like hitting the restart button on a computer. My friend had several treatments that left him a bit foggy and forgetful-he really didn't remember most of it. They use it only in extreme cases that need immediate help, and can't wait for anti-depressants to kick-in. Better to do something, than nothing. Bi-Polar depressives have to want to

Thanks Shyam, l love Renee's hair too. I prefer to think of the ending as an undesired resolution.

this is superb! the riot of Renee's hair, the way you build the story & snuff it at the end! bravo!

Thanks for reading my (somewhat anti) love story over 2500 times!

"She was the drug of passion and effervescence." Although that is usually a wonderful combination, the flip side is dark.

My mother had paranoid schizophrenia as I write about in my book, Growing UP Crazy - a memoir. She was given shock treatment as they used to call it but back then they did not give any painkillers. It helped her briefly. Nice read!

Loved meeting Renee. There seemed to have been a demarciation between her pre- and post- hospital self. It's a big bang of a relationship! And the eyes, of course, are the key. Jane is a gripping character also.

Palpable imagery, @Natasha Tracy ... "Her hair was wild. She painted it blueberry, raspberry or cherry blossom because it made her smile and laugh."
