Questions and answers on "Counselling"

I have tried counselling and everything my doctors and counsellors have suggested, but I am increasingly irritable, down and easily angered. I feel the same as I did when I was diagnosed with depression, but nothing significant has happened to make me feel that way. I was wondering, could it be a brain/hormonal thing? And if so, are anti-depressants the way to go seeing as I've tried everything and nothing seems to work ?

I am lost, hopeless, directionless, and it is only night 3. is this my own anxiety or something more serious? The last time I felt this way was 2 years ago when my bio children's father got 3 overnights a week, I never got better, just shut down until they were home until my step children moved in, then I was still mom and was able to cope or forget that some were not here.
