Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi Jen, good to hear from you again. Sorry to hear that things haven't gotten any better. The last time you wrote, you were going to devote all your time and attention to your husband and baby. How did that go?
There is a self-help method of working on your issues that should help with this. It's called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It's based on the principles of acupuncture, but doesn't require any needles.
