h, I expect that though you may feel a little better when eating, you then feel bad about having eaten too much, so it's no lasting solution, is it ? It sounds very much as if your Depression has returned ( it often does this ) and you probably do need to restart antidepressants. If you're not on medical aid, there are two main alternatives. One is that your GP can prescribe one of the newer drugs but in the generic form which are chemically equivalent but considerably cheaper than the full branded versions ; the other is that you can go to a state health clinic / provincial hospital clinic / University Medical School Dept of Psychiatry, and get an assessment and prescription at a lower price which ought to be means tested, in other words, the cost depending on your earnings. Press ahead with either of these options --- you deserve it.
