Last week my psychotherapist mentioned the possibility of my suffering lasting effects from the ECT.....I know my memory is not what is was before, at Durham friends used to jokingly/jealously accuse me of having a photographic memory...I was able to remember the book, its place in the library, the page and exact quote pertaining to the topic discussed for example. Amongst other problems I often cannot remember having read a book or seen a film until well into it. Words I wish to write emerge jumbled from the pen. Dates and names are very very problematic.
Response to UK mental health bill: "'Williams (1941) has shown that the E.E.G. may remain abnormal for many years after a head injury and has demonstrated a relationship between E.E.G. abnormalities and the severity of the injury, as judged by the length of post-traumatic amnesia.' ('Electro-Encephalographic Studies of Psychopathic Personalities,' Denis Hill and Donald Watterson, J. Neurol. and Psychiat., 5-6, 1942-3)"
