Welcome to HW I am glad you have gound us here
Personally I have not tried the acupuncture but
I am pretty positive there are members that have and they will post their experiences to you .......
I have A/P with some severe bouts of Depression ( only last few mths with Dep) for well over 30 plus yrs
I have tried all there is I believe except the acupucture and hypnotism
I am sure others will respond to you in no time but remember this is the holiday time and ppl will or may be away so no worries you will be answered....
This is a fantastic place for sharing,caring support and understanding
YOU are no longer alone
I am glad you posted
Please do post more and intoduce self in the "I am Thread" if you care too or get involved in the silliy ones we have to
With a/p you HAVE to find some laughter each day to fight this Dang monster we know so well
Check out at the top RESOURCES with "Wen's " name at the end it has links to help you find ways to cope with the a/p other than just with meds
Never be ashamed IF you have to take meds.........IMHO..............LYN
I wish you all the best and do hope you wil stay with us here.......LYN
I forgot to ask if it's antidepressants that make you feel worse or short term meds like Benzo's ( ativan diazapam)
