In this issue of Wiseblood, writer Fishspit details (in a very stream of consciousness-style way) some of their experiences with depression, and the use of electro-convulsive treatment therapy. At first glance, I thought this was a fictional recount of someone in the midst of receiving the treatment because of the constant train of thought, use of only ellipses as punctuation, and overall rambling. Reading further along, I grew used to the writing style and was able to focus on specific details of how their depression would go away and slowly come back so strongly that the electro-convulsive treatments were the only therapy that could help them. Definitely not an easy read—with frustrating moments reading about someone dealing with insurance companies, hospitals, and getting an alternative medicine that most people would be shocked and repulsed by—but an illuminating first-hand account nonetheless. –Tricia Ramos (Wiseblood, 1304 175th Pl.
