Feel trapped

I've had Asperger syndrome from birth and OCD almost since then, but my depression only cropped up a few years ago (or the AS and OCD precipitated the depression, I don't know). I find very little, if any pleasure in anything anymore. I feel mentally fatigued all the time and everything seems so impossibly hard that I just don't try. I'm usually able to (barely) hold it together in public but when I get home I just sit in my apartment and cry. Not like I can go anywhere else either since I don't have a car...

My psychologist says I need to socialize more in order to feel better, but it seems to me like that would just make it worse. I hate people. Maybe once every few years you come across a good one but most of the time they just screw you over. I really don't see why getting hurt AGAIN would help my depression. Sure, I might meet someone nice, but by that logic why don't I just spend my whole paycheck on lottery tickets? After all, I MIGHT win...

I've been on Prozac for about eight years but I don't think it's working anymore.
