some background information: my wife has been diagnosed w/clinical depression for the last 9 years during this time the most successful treatments have been ECT the illness was held in check, however, complacency took over and maintenance was avoided. However, she recently had another episode and was hospitalized and began ECT---after 4 treatments it was discontinued she became very confused/disoriented about her current location (hospital) and started to associate the environs as her previous employment and refers to staff members other patients as co workers. The question I have is how do I deal w/conversations do I 'go-along' with her fixation? or how can I explain to her where she is at. I've told she is currently in a hospital--and has been there for over 2 wks the depression apparently has been placed into a re missive condition. It is too early in the prognosis for the Dr to make an accurate assessment of the condition. Not quite sure what avenue to pursue @ this time.
