Usually depression just comes out from somewhere and takes over your life. My mother, sister and grandmother suffered with this but me now being 73 thought I had passed it by with the blessings of God. But no………it started coming on about 2 years ago and hasn't let up since that time. I have a good doctor and he does try to help me all he can but we just haven't found the "right" medicine yet. Just try to be strong (that's what I try to do) sometime it works sometimes it doesn't but it a daily "hell "for me. God Bless ….try to be strong. Patti

@brit– There's a lot of research that also points to chemical imbalance. I'm not a scientist but it make sense. Now whether our genes cause the imbalance or it's just a flaw I have no idea.
I was taking Zoloft well before my Dr. Put me on Wellbutrin. I also have PTSD from many lung cancers and depression is part of that. Could you have PTSD and need more medication? I agree, it's a living hell.
This is my blog and some of the posts deal with my depression. https://my20yearscancer.com/
