I used to think the exact same thing about myself, until I found ONE antidepressant that worked. Then I knew it wasn't me. I never spoke, never enjoyed myself in parties, felt too afraid to particiate in conversations, always felt sad or depressed when with people. It was a nightmare.

But I tried Celexa and it gave me one full year of happiness. Unfortunately, it stopped working after a year, so I've been depressed and anxious for 5 years afterwards. But just having felt outgoing and social for once in my life proved to me me that I did in fact have it in me.

I have hope that I will find another antidepressant that will bring the social part of me(my next bet is Nardil.)

I don't really think that there's people whose personalities are "depressive." I dont believe depression is a personality, but an illness that can be treated. So if you think you're just depressive, you might be right, but not as a personality, but as a treatable symptom.

Have you ever tried Celexa, Paxil, or Nardil? Those are the antidepressants that I've heard of that work well on people who are depressive and socially anxious. Before giving up, you should try some medications and see if they work. That's the only way to figure it out.

Good luck
