The only relevance in your age is that it is the likely time for those types of illnesses to present. That may be why they (Docs) are inclined to think you are headed for something other than MDD. I don't. I think that while you want to feel again, your brain is saying you can't handle the pain of your MDD right now. You and I are different in that I so fully felt my depression for a time prior to the long period of numbness that I actually welcomed it and at first was afraid when it started to fade.
I think the Dx of MDD is accurate, and I'm not a PDoc but I think you know what worked for me. I just posted a couple threads you may want to look at. You can't keep on like this and I think its time to stop with all these meds and get a serious PDoc and a serious med(s) that will bring you out of this. I'm not talking about antipsych's either. IMHO, thats the LAST thing you need. Your trying to wake up, not go into a coma. A strong opinion but I feel for you as I was there.
