Besides medication and talk therapy I would reccomend you ask about a support group for that. I had a relative go through that who has depression and it did worsen things for her and she found a support group very helpful. Women there will have been through that and can share specific coping solutions. There should be one in your area. Look it up online or in the listings in the local papers or ask your therapist for a referral.
I am also suffering from empty arm syndrome. I have been on anti depressants for years. I recently bought myself I reborn doll it helps with the empty arm syndrome.
