In brief: Therapy?

Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as dysthymia 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.

In brief: I find dysthymia

Challenging to work w because the folks who have it are often very resistant to letting go of depression.
They often find a sort of sick pleasure in being self- critical, gloomy ; guilty. A bit like eore in winnie the pooh. The real question is how much do you want to be happy? If you are up for the challenge - it can be done. Cognitive behavioral therapy is the best approach i know of. But you.
