Liza's right, the sort of resolution you'd like isn't always possible. But if the diagnosis is severe chronic depression potentially needing long-term medication, or if in the three years the medication has not been sufficient, it would be very wise to ask for a referal to a good local psychiatrist for a review of the diagnosis and treatment. Adding CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a method of talking treatment which good research has shown to be highly effective, may also be a good idea, and the psychiatrist could advise on this.
