I have struggled w/ depression for many years of my life. A lot of it was alcohol related, as I was a heavy drinker for the past 7 years. I've been sober for over 3 months now however. I've beat depression before but this time is an all time low. I went through some extreme issues at the beginning of the year and have had it pretty severe the last 7 months. I work out regularly, eat healthy, take vitamins and fish oil, and try and sleep a regular schedule (even though I'd hardly call it sleep), but I am still completely miserable most of the day. I go to a.a. meetings and try and stay social w/ my family and friends but it's kind of to the point that I feel no emotion whatever I do anymore. I'm beginning to think I probably need some medication, I try so many things but it doesn't ever really seem to budge anymore. Any advice? Especially w/ winter coming up that just makes things much worse for me.

I just want to make sure it is absolutely clear to me so I don't make a fatal error and kill a patient. I sometimes wish I were...
