I know it's very frustrating when nothing seems to help - age 17-29 i tried about 7 diff meds but finally last year my psych tried a combination of venlafaxine/quetiepine and using light-box & CBT/CAT has helped.

Have everything to live for on the surface too but depression can happen to anyone - regardless of circumstances...if you can get 'Depressive illness:Curse of the strong by Dr Tim Cantopher (he trained with my psych) it helps explain depression and treatment really well...
