It can be tough to find help, that's for sure. You will be able to find information on WebMD to better understand your condition, and if you go to the depression community you may find some support at least. Welcome to the group, and here are the links:

http://www.webmd.com/depression/default.htm

http://exchanges.webmd.com/depression-exchange

Hopefully this will at least give you some places to start. With health care this difficult to get, many of us are having to research our own conditions and find ways to help ourselves. I'm going through the same thing so I understand.

To other responders: Please be a little nicer when replying to someone asking for help. We may not be able to do much but we can at least try to be understanding. A "what do you expect?" really doesn't do anything for anyone.

Welcome to WebMD! I think you will find some supportive people here in some of the communities. And with libability issues these days, people always say "see a doctor" which is really frustrating when you can't see one!

Because of that, I set up a thread for people to share ways they help their depression. I hope you find some useful tips there.
