Hi, it’s a long time you have been trying to deal with this by yourself. It’s great that you have finally reached out. There may be several reasons for which you have been feeling and a professional will help you explore the same. They will help you accept the ones that you cannot change and make changes to the ones that you can. There is nothing weak in getting help and please be assured that an ethical counsellor will maintain utmost confidentiality of your problem.

If you have been experiencing symptoms of depression for quite some time I can understand how difficult it is to seek help. Seeking help is the first step to recovery. I would suggest find a good Psychologist that you can connect with. Diagnosis and treatment plan can be decided after your first session. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy works wonders for depression and it is evidence based and backed by research.
Next Steps
Book a session with a psychologist. Get diagnosed and assessed for whether you require medication or CBT is enough.
Health Tips
I know It can seem hopeless and helpless but fighting depression is possible.
