treatment resistant depression

I have had panic and depression off and on for the past 33 years and am at my wits end/ Most anti-depressant drugs work for awhile and I need the highest dose available but that is even true with novacaine for dental work. It seems that since I was diagnosed with breast cancer 9 years ago I haven't been the same. I know how lucky I am to be a survivor and am extremely grateful for that but still feel like I am carrying a cloud around with me. My shrink doesn't seem to care and I have to give him suggestions he usually follows which doesn't seem to faze him. Is this the way it is supposed to be with psychiatrists? There aren't many others around here so I don't know what to do and I am tired of taking pills and don't need shock treatments. Help!
