Dream - Triggering
Anneinside posted:
I have been having ECT for the past few weeks - three times a week. Today I had it again, first time since Friday as we are going to once a week. Monday and Tuesday I had fleeting suicidal thoughts but more disturbing is that Monday night I had a suicide dream - first ever. Not to go into details, I dreamed step by step a suicide attempt, waking up as I "sat back" and waited for it to take effect. Disturbing. Ever happen to anyone else?

I have had dreams of being really angry, but not sure if I have had a dream like that one. Maybe because you have been thinking about the treatment, and the areas you want it to improve upon you have had a dream about it...just a thought. I hope your treatments go well and you are feeling better soon.
