About the Author:

Wendy Funk grew up with the notion that if she worked hard and lived a clean life, her goals could be attained. Much to her horror - this was not to be the case. Wendy is here to tell the story that so desperately needs to be told. The one that too many people around the globe have expereienced first hand. It's the story of having all freedoms and rights once taken for granted - suddenly stripped away; of learning to live without the memories of a lifetime; of knowing the ultimate in betrayals. It's the story of how survival after psychiatry is possible.

Review:

"Wendy Funk has written a brutally honest, moving and courageous account about what it's like to survive electroschock and the psychiatric system. She seeks help for a sore throat and ends up getting forcibly drugged, electroshocked and terrorized in a Canadian psychoprison." -- DON WIETZ, anti-psychiatry activist, co-editor of Shrink Resistant: The Struggle Against Psychiatry in Canada, and CKLN radio producer and host of Shrinkrap.

"Wendy reveals as only a survivor can the travesty, the dehumanization, the affront to self, and the theft of self perpetrated by the psychiatric system. A gripping and terrifying account that serves as a warning to anyone who thinks that they are beyond reach." -- Bonnie Burstow, Psychotherapist, anti-psychiatry activisit, co-editor of Shrink Resistant: The Struggle Against Psychiatry in Canada.

"What Difference Does It Make?" is a courageous young woman's experience of psychiatric hospitalization and tragic life altering, memory robbing effects of Electroshock "therapy". A true story of survival. Recommended reading for ECT survivors, their families, activists, and anyone considering ECT as a treatment option for themselves or a loved one. If you want to know what ECT really does, read this book." -- Barbara C. Cody B.Sc., R.N. Electroshock Survivor, Activist, Writer, Speaker
