I know sometimes you feel like you just aren't getting cards and can't play, but does that mean everyone else always has the nuts? No. I'm not saying to just bluff willy-nilly. What I try to do is show the table when I do get that good hand. Then, when in position, throw out a bluff or 2 to keep my image strong. Fold too much and your opponents will raise you often as they sense your apprehension. If you think you ARE getting raised too much, it is time to switch tables because your image is probably already blown. This works for me, also.
Good luck! I still haven't completely cured my problem, either.
