I am recently experienced my 18 year old daughter have a psychotic episode with 11 ECT treatments. I have PTSD from this experience as I also witnessed her biological father have a similar episode 28 years ago and again when I left him 7 years ago. The experience terriorised me. I am trying to put my mind back together but can over react to things I would normally be able to rationize.
