Though it is just my opinion, I think your kinds of symptoms are similar to things that happen more in schizonphrenic disorders than depressive disorders.

I had the same experiences as you and I thought it was just living hell. Horrible. When my doc finally decided to look at the antipsychotic class of meds, since we had exhausted lots of other more logical things (SSRIs often made me worse), I got better very fast. Zyprexa has been wonderful for me. I also take it with a small 10mg dose of prozac and 600mg st johns wort. Zyprexa keeps me sane, steady and stable. Prozac I think just turbochargers the zyprexa and keeps me non-depressed. There is some blawness and lack of motivation leftover, and the sjw conquers that real well.

I just think you would get better the fastest if you look at a different class of drugs, like the antipsychotics. Zyprexa is my fav. But risperdal or abilify are also possible choices. Regardless of whatever label diagnosis a doc might give you, the symptom cluster that you described has a good chance of being addressed by an antipsychotic medication.
