Mr. Scott, I was in the black hole a few years ago. Paxil helped me; and later Prozac with Xanax helped after trying many other ADs. I have a better life now; have destressed my surroundings, am not on medication except Xanax for insomnia now and rare anxiety. As a very last resort if you have tried everything possible for a number of years, would you think about ECT? I know it's helped some people but it is not an easy decision. I've felt the same way as you, and I do think reality and the world are very difficult for sensitive souls. I could not have made it without medication a few years ago, but things are much better now. They can be for you too. Try to be helpful somewhere where you are needed; Im sure you have more to give than you think, and it may help you with your depression. I wish you the best.
