I'm BP II, was very ill, and actually had a total of 77 ECT's.  I am on the road to wellness now, thanks to a very special pdoc, who put me on the right meds.
 
I wrote this for my blog, which turned out to be a very controversial article.  Many, many responses....so thought it may be of interest to you.  I'm just including the first paragraph.  I don't write professionally; just for me and my blog (which is not for profit), whose aim is to educate and get the word out about mental illness stigma.
 

ECT –Will #54 Do The Trick?

It was decided: Wednesday would be the day.  I’ve kept count; it will be #54, another nightmare procedure producing nil results and I’m pessimistic.  I have to keep going, plodding along, slowly – ever so slowly to somehow reach the top of the mountain. I’ve lost most of my faith in ECT, including most of my long-term memory, but what else is there, what else to do?   more....
