Psychiatrist 's  Response
From the history available it is not easy to make a I m not aware who diagnosed you with depression and did you received any treatment for it or not...were these thoughts of devil was the prominent problem or the sadness of these history can change your diagnosis and the management ...
But most probably either you had depression with obsessive rumination which is a part of depression....or OCD which is usually not well formed in initial years....and some associated depression...
As your symptoms has emerged and they are very similar to the previous one you need to evaluate the reason for it
Is it just a recurrence ,,,, or you have been through a stressor recently ,,, or you had any medical complain each time before onset of symptoms like fever......
In each case you should wait for one more week....if symptoms persist or increase you shoul consult a psychiatrist and start management as advices. Because it may a sign of some severe phenomenon...
Take care

You are probably having relapse of your previous symptoms as u have left medications. you start taking drugs immediately after taking consultation from a psychiatrist. Get a thyroid profile also.
