Assessment : If you have persistent depressed mood you should get a full workup including physical and mental. Reactive attachment disorder is very rare but very serious, the good news is that there is treatment for it. I'm sorry you've been feeling so depressed for so long, but there is help for you. This is a great place to start, but you need and deserve individualized attention. Best wishes to you.
