I hope others can add to me reasurance for you. Remember, Depression is an exceedingly sneaky illness, and one of the things it does to us is to make us unrealistically pessimistic, and to damage our capacity to hope or to believe that we will indeed get better. You have indeed had an unduly long time of this. I don't recall whether you are being treated by a GP or a psychiatrist - if a GP. then it's high time you were referred to and seen by a proper specialist psychiatrist, who should be involved in the care of EVERY case of depression which does not respond well the the initial treatment tried. If you're seeing a psychiatrist, maybe a second opinion would be in order ?
