Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

I'm sorry you are suffering from depression. The first step is to see a psychiatrist and get evaluated for an antidepressant medication. These are safe and effective medications that can help lift a very depressed mood. I recommend considering either Zoloft, Lexapro, or Prozac. In time, you will feel better.
