Hi OneWing (great handle, btw, we've all felt that way at one time or another). I'm fortunate in that my depression & anxiety have responded pretty well to a combination of medication and meditation, so I'm not going to offer any advice about specific meds, but I have a piece of psychological advice that may sound as lame as that of the therapist who told you to try something creative. Don't be passive; don't let yourself fall into "learned helplessness." Take an active role in seeking the right doctor or combination of doctors -- in my case, that involved a psychiatric nurse practitioner & a neurologist. Once you find that combination of docs / meds, who knows? You may want to try something creative -- sounds lame when you're sick, but I have found that getting focused on something outside myself helps keep me stable. Good luck and don't give in to passivity.
