2. Why would you sugggest against it?

There is a real negative stigma associated with ECT.

I've taken more drugs than I can remember and I'm at the point where nothing seems to work. My history? Long story. My diagnosis is psychotic depression. That 'label' also has a negative stigma associated with it.

I'm looking at it like stage four cancer. I feel I need to get very aggressive in my treatment if I ever want to have my life back. So, I'm considering ECT.
