Hello, I'm brand new to the community. I've suffered from depression and anxiety forever.... Tried nearly all the medications both new and old, psychotherapy, even some of the alternative herbals, vitamins and such. Then I hear about biofeedback therapy only to get my hope and dreams crushed by the insurance company who refuses to pay for treatment. They consider this to be "experimental and unproven". The out of pocket cost would bankrupt me! But, I would risk it if I new it could re-program my brain. I even called the clinic and begged for any spot if they had a clinical trial available......no such luck. Antidepressants just don't work well for me. My psychiatrist says that I am ~hypersensitive~ and she has only treated 5 patients like me. I can only tolerate tiny fractions of a pill and then get terrible reactions and side effects. This is so frustrating, battling this depression and anxiety all of my life.....I wish someone would come up with a cure or a better "alternative" form of treatment. Anyone have any suggestions?
