I am sharing my response to Ms. McFadden with you, my friends, colleagues, and community, because I choose you for company. Thank you for that.
Hello Ms. McFadden,Thank you so much for your work increasing community awareness of ECT and diminishing social stigma. Thank you for having a life-work, such as this, for obtaining a powerful voice that people want to listen to, and doing what you have done to get attention. Your influence, hard-earned, is collateral and that you spent it “here” is huge. I am so grateful.I am a psychiatrist. It is difficult for me to work with these, community awareness and social stigma. I am not special in this difficult experience, of course, and I know that the bummer feeling that I am “alone” in it is a distortion. Thank you for your company and illuminating presence. Keep on.Sana Johnson-Quijada MD
