See below: Any recent major stressors like moving, marriage, divorce, job loss, financial problems, etc? Such events can trigger reactive depression, which if left untreated, can progress into major depression. See your pcp for evaluation. S/he may recommend therapy as well as medication. Eliminating stressors (if possible) can improve mood as well.

Seek Help: It would be a good idea for you to seek help for these difficulties. You could start by seeing your regular physician for a good overall evaluation. It might also be helpful to get a recommendation from that office (or from other people you know) to see a counselor or therapist to discuss what's going on. The key thing is for you to seek out help and support.

DEPRESSION: Get an evaluation from a psychiatrist to help identify what depression means to you and whatever else may be bothering you. Consider recommendations for medication if any are given. Get a referral for a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Meds and therapy combined are most optimal; no just one or the other.
