I don't know what to do anymore - Do counselors actually help?

I have suffered from mild depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and OCD for many years now. I started college this year and everything seems to be getting worse. I remember throughout high school how much my depression affected my ability to learn; remembering information, focusing, and with studying. Over the past few weeks, it has become much worse. I constantly feel "out of it" and disconnected from the world.

Do counselors actually help? I have been to a few sessions with different counselors and just gave up. I take two anti-depressants but they don't seem to help anymore. I cannot continue to live my life feeling disconnected and almost like I'm high off of something 24/7. What can I do?

Sorry you are struggling. I think counsellors can help. They are someone to talk to. However I do not believe they are a quick fix. I see a counsellor and like she says 'things get worse before they get better' simply because you are talking about stuff that is very hard and can bring up emotions. It is also important to check they are part of a body eg BACP. Do you have any other support?
