Diet and exercise: Make sure that you are eating 1 gm of protein for every 3 gm carbohydrate with each meal/snack. Drink 1.5-2 l of water daily. Get 20-30 minutes of exercise daily minimum.

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
