The first sentence in your post told me all I need to know! I hate to go against the docs, but you've just given a classic description of depression!!!
Until abt 3 yrs ago, I had everything going for me and was considered as having it all and yet I was depressed. I threw myself into my work so there was not much spare time to dwell on it. Due to declining health, and having to go from curtailing the amt of time spent working to not being able to work at all, I have a lot more time to dwell on depression.
Losing a job or having to give it up is devastating to everybody. We know that men associate themselves w/their work, but I have discovered that career women do, too. Obviously, the depression was so much worse after leaving your careers! I think you were depressed all along and that may have contributed to how you got along w/people at work.
Don't give up on meds just because you feel as though you have tried them all. I relate to that, too!
However, the latest thing in meds seems to be trying combinations of two different meds. This has helped me even though I had been on each med in the past, but not in combination! There are also other therapies you can try. Find out abt other options by reading posts here.
You do have everything in the world going for you. Congrats on the new job!
