What treatment are you getting for depression - because you have to give it time to work. Your depression comes from a lack of trust in your own strength to handle any situation. The only 'cure' is to face life with the knowledge that you can tackle any problem or that there are those around you whom you can turn to for help if things get too much for you. So stay close to your friends and family and counsellors - they are your support base until you can feel fully able to stand on your own feet. Stay positve - one of the certainties of life is that everything passes - no bad situation ever lasts.
