A book goes live on a taboo topic that features in horror movies, and government conspiracy theories, but seldom openly discussed in the medical field – ECT. Electroconvulsive Therapy, aka Shock Therapy.
“I wanted to write a book that detailed what I could of my experiences with ECT, what ECT is all about, why it happens, and to dispel the very common misconceptions about the treatment. I wrote covering the good, the bad, and the ugly of what is seen as a horrific treatment in a way that people outside of the medical field can understand and make sense of it all. It’s for those considering ECT, have been through it, know someone going through ECT, or just want to know about it. It’s for everyone!” ~K. Rose Quayle
K. Rose Quayle has battled mental illness in its various forms throughout her life. Working in the financial field, working on her art, and taking care of her dog, cats, and chickens, she works hard on putting her creative passions into whatever she puts her mind to – often to help others.
Currently available on Kindle, and in Paperback, “Look Left, Walk Green” fills a place in the mental health market where there is far too much misinformation and bias when it comes to Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT).
Commonly known as “Shock Therapy”. The treatment has been long portrayed in movies and media as brutal, torturous, and barbaric.
Little has changed in ECT throughout history. The results remain hit and miss, and the side-effects can be life changing for better, or worse.
Written by someone who has actually been there, and not just covering theory, this book covers all sides of the treatment, the good and the bad, talking about what happens, why it happens and how, even considering caregivers and what makes life at home more manageable for patient and family.
