Actress Carrie Fisher credits drastic electric shock therapy with helping her beat depression.
After years of battling an addiction to alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs, Fisher suffered severe bouts of depression, that no course of medicine could cure.
She finally caved in and followed the advice of professionals who claimed electro convulsive therapy could cure her - and it did.
Fisher, 52, says, "I didn't want to do it for years. They wanted me to do it before, because I was in a depression, which was medication proof.
"You don't have a convulsion anymore, so it should just be called electro therapy. But it worked so well, I highly recommend it, even if you don't need it!"
