Psychotic Dep.: Your doctor must have performed thorough assessment to diagnose & treat. He/she knows your case more than any of us online. Wish u well.

Yes, it could be.: It sounds you want to know if you can get recurrent depression with psychotic features. Yes, it's possible. It's a very serious form of depression that deteriorates to include perceptions that are not supported or shared by those around you (family, social and cultural background). A review of your symptoms with your doctor and strict adherence to treatment will help. Best wishes.
