Severe depression

Does anyone go through really bad times of severe depression? Like nothing makes you happy? Right now I have little appetite, am constantly sleepy, always dehydrated, nothing makes me happy or excited, I don't want to talk to anyone, I have no emotions, etc.

Just in case anyone asks. I am currently on 50mg of Zoloft and see a psychiatrist every week.

This shit scares me to death.

Thanks for the replies. I honestly don't know how much longer I can take this. I feel like utter hell. I've tried other meds before. Zoloft worked at times, but there are other times where it doesn't work. I was on 200mg, but have tappered down slowly with my doctor's help, because it zaps any sexual wants, etc. Plus, I'm just not a very big fan on meds. I just don't like the idea of crap messing with our brains, etc. when in essence the doctors don't even know if they are gonna work.

I do have my ups and downs. For example, I was feeling pretty depression free for almost a month, but over the last week and a half it was been utter hell. Sure the ups are obviously nice, but the downs make the ups feel non-exsistent.

And Dreamer, I do exercise regularly and have pretty much my entire life. I've always been in good physical shape. I also eat healthy, drink alot of water, and usually get pretty decent, though dream interuppted, sleep.

I just get overwhelmed thinking about trying another med. Getting off this one, starting on a new one, waiting to see if it has any effects. If it doesn't then I will have to taper off that one and am back to square one. I just don't know what to do. It's all so frustrating and just wish it would just stop. No one deserves to live like this. NO ONE!

Again, thanks for the advice. I just don't know. I'm just so horribly depressed and just have this scared feeling in my head for everything I think of and do. It's really pure, utter hell. Yesterday I slept from 2pm-midnight...woke up for a bit...and then went back to sleep from 1am-7am. Un-freakin-real. And the thing is...I didn't want to get up at 7am to go to work. It's like no matter what I do, I'm depressed. The only thing that really talks me out of ending it all is my family and friends and the hopes that it will get better again.

I don't feel like trying another med, cause none have worked up to this point. I just am not excited about anything in life. Not even the smallest thing. And it's horrible. Being awake is utter hell.

I just hope it gets better one day.
