Being depressed as in sadness,dispear, grief, etc. and suffering from "clinical" depression can often be two very different things.
You sound like you have diagnosed yourself with "clinical" depression already. Have you spoken with a GP?
My advice is to get as many tests done to rule out physical anomilies which may be causing your symptoms, as depression is often a symptom of a greater problem.
Your GP can organize the tests (blood, urine, ecg, etc.), then refer you to a specialist if he can't work out what's wrong. You may only require CBT (i.e. no medication) so don't let your GP just write you off (oh what's with the puns today...I'm in a silly mood).
