In brief: Yes but also explore
These feelings in psychotherapy.
As to medication, meet with a psychiatrist and have them evaluate you and decide whether an antidepressant is what's needed or what. Despair usually spells depression; but we are such individual creatures and we express ourselves in such unique ways that ur best bet is to discuss ur feelings in detail with a psychiatrist & see what he/she recommend for you.
