Yes, medication on its own isn't a miracle cure. But if there is a genuine chemical depression,it can help greatly to relieve symptoms. But I believe that proper counselling is ALWAYS beneficial and helps to work on ways to cope better with mood changes, and to solve life problems better, and to give up the hectically negative habits of thought that are such a part of depression. THAT can be transforming.
Look at how perfectly you illustrate my point about "negative habits of thought" when you put on your Judge's wig, and pronounce yourself "worthless, no good and pathetic" Work on those bad habits, and your depression could become much more manageable.
And of course, as Angel illustrates, when one surrenders to the depression, sitting alone in a gloomy place, even cheerful folks would feel miserable - one is actually making the situation worse. Getting involved in liofe, activities, and with other people AS THOUGH one were less depressed, actually improves one's depression.
