Very depressed and concerned about my kids

I have been battling depression since I was a child. It comes in waves depending on my situation. Lately I am extremely depressed. I have been married to an abuser for almost 10 years and feel completely stuck in the marriage. I am not from this country, have no education from here and no real skills. I have been at home with my kids since they were born and have not worked.
My kids are almost 8 and 5. I am so depressed that I can barely take care of them. I am really concerned about them. They need my support now when the school is starting again, but I have no strength to give them support.
I have tried different medication (prozac, imipramine, remeron and several other), but nothing has helped me. I take diazepam, which is the only thing that takes the edge of the depression and anxiety.
Intellectually I know that my situation isn't hopeless, but I am so depressed that I am not able to see a way out to freedom and away from this prison with my husband.

Negot. I have read lovely posts written by you, so I suspect that you have more skills and abilities than you think. maybe you are in a catch 22 - you are in a rotten situation so you are depressed and you cant get out. But maybe if you can get out the reasons for you depression might be lightened...
