In brief: Exercise

Depression can be very serious and sometimes caused by medical illness.
See your family doc to get checked out. In addition to prescription medication for depression daily vigorous exercise can help as well as seeing a councilor, reading books about depression, and taking better care of yourself.

In brief: See Doctor

Depression can be treated with counseling alone or with medications.
Combining the two is significantly better. Talk to your doctor to assess your symptoms and severity of depression in order to decide which treatment or treatments you will most benefit from. It's also a good idea, if possible, to involve those most close to you for support and encouragement.
