I second the EFT recommendation. My wife escaped a several year post partum depression after I basically blackmailed her with the threat of divorce,
that if she did not do one hundred rounds of tapping. I had tried everything I knew about, but being a family member often interferes with such
things. I had known about EFT for several years, but had discounted it mostly, because I know NLP, and it seemed superfluous to me. I also could not
understand the mechanism, so I further discounted it. But, she had been to a shrink and found no relief. And was on a daily crying jag schedule as
So, I got an EFT Course and learned it, and tried it on myself for something fairly minor. And I was very surprised that it worked, much beyond my
expectations. As I said, I had to blackmail her to do it. So, no belief is required. It's not hypnotism or placebo, IMO. So, she went off by herself
and did (by her report) about sixty rounds of tapping the first day. That's took about an hour and a half. The second day, she went off by herself,
and did some more. After about half an hour, she came out and threw the disk set at me, and said something to the effect of, " I'm not doing this
anymore. Divorce me if you want to. I don't even know why you are making me do it. I wasn't even depressed in the first place."
No more crying jags. No more anger toward me or her job. And she was happier on a day to day basis than I had seen her since our kid was born. I never
addressed it again with her, because if she did not consciously remember she had been depressed, who was I to harp on it? I have no idea if she even
has any conscious memory of her behaviors and state during that period. But, her getting happy again, made it a fair trade for me.
I'm pretty sure there are still free resources on-line for it. It's easy to do. And it works, IME. But, as your Doctor said, no one else can do it
for you. When your conscious mind decides it's worth a couple of hours honestly trying it out....suspending and belief or disbelief...and just doing
it anyway, then you can decide for yourself. Until then....maybe your Other Than Conscious mind has good reasons for not letting you in on your own
life to a greater extent.
