Depression: Medication alone is not enough to help lessen your destructive feelings. You need to be in psychotherapy with a mental health professional who is veteran in treating serious depression. Ask your doctor for a referral, you can be helped to see yourself more accurately. When your depressed your view of yourself will be far more negative and not realistic, you need the eyes of an objective therapist.
