Depression, when is chronic, affecting your day to day activities and curtailing your progress needs medical help. There might be some cognitive distortions which is maintaining your depression all these years. If those are realized and corrected you can come out of it. If suicidal thoughts intrude it has gone into danger zone and needs urgent psychiatric help.
