Need clarification: I would like to help, so please clarify your question with more detail I'm not sure what you are asking.

Improving well being: If I understand, you are so used to depression that feeling non-depressed is unusual? Not uncommon especially if depression started early in life. If a goal is continued well-being now is an opportunity to develop a new perspective and resilience to future depression. Working with a therapist in this capacity may be helpful, as might use of structured healthy activities (yoga, hobbies/clubs, etc).

Time for prof help: Your question is not clear. Having long term depression and thinking some kind of suicidal thoughts is a signal to be seeing a psychiatrist . You probably would benefit by medication, therapy or both. You shouldn't delay and if feeling suicidal should tell doctor, family or close friend immediately and see psychiatrist asap. You can also call 911 or suicide hot line get immediate help and support.

Support from family and friends is beneficial. Going to the office of Psychiatrist with close family members will be helpful to define the treatment.
