We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My wife got a special K treatment after a year of depression with no results with Rx drugs. She felt great after a couple of hours, better than any time in the past year. Next day, still ok but not as good as the first day. Next morning, she came down hard and tried to kill herself by OD on other pills. Ultimately ECT provided the best and most continuous relief for her. Loss of memory is a side effect of ECT typically, and that has happened with her. Be careful.
