I'm over it

I'm 27 and been depressed for at least 4-5 years now. I have my bad months and then I get better. I stop taking meds because at the end of the day, I'm just not happy. I have a great job and a husband that loves me limitless. I live the dream life and some people would say, but I'm just so depressed and tired of having teary eyes all the time. I'm just not happy. Nothing in the world would make me happy. I just can't keep going on with my life being this miserable and I just want to be normal. I want to wake up one day and actually be happy and it seems like that won't happen.

I'm very strong person and never felt so weak and I don't want to continue hurting the people around me. How do you get over it? do you ever get normal? I need help.
I have never felt this hopeless!

If your meds didn't help you, then they need to be increased, or you need to try meds in a different class. Have you really tried meds in all the major classes? You sound like you have clinical depression since you know that reality is good. I had a wonderful life in every way and knew it, but was severely depressed. Finding the right medication fixed everything. Then I got severely depressed due to very bad life circumstances. It was so situational that I didn't think anything could help me. But just raising the anti-depressant completely took away my depression. Your life and happiness is in your hands. Don't give up.
