Yeah, and to add to all this great advice. Sometimes meds that held us can poop out, even after 1 year. I know it might seem weird, but it happens. I was on Celexa and after a year it pooped out on me. Just a thought. I'm not really aware of all the stressers going on in your life, but that can push through the medication as well. Even if the stress or change doesnt seem to really be present, it can be sub-conscience changes.
Okay, i re-read your post. WOW, thats a lot of changes going on in your life. That's stressful (the bus growing) and unknowing (the move -- short on rent -- the rise of anxiety -- the rise of sepression -- the meds). A lot is going on for sure. Can you see you doctor soon? You might need to switch SSRIs or go up on the benzos, depending on what they think. It's most likely transitional, and dont think you're back to square one, cause you're not. You are going through a tough time, a rough patch, and you'll get through it. Ugh. I know how much it sucks, but hang in there and keep posting. You're doing a lot, so i would, if possible, to slow down a little. Literally. Take some deep breathes, be kind to yourself, eat well, and drink lots of water.
And just from my experience, my anxiety comes first and then the depression. I get depressed from all the anxiety. I end up with a "tired but wired" feeling all the time. Its really tough sometimes.
hang in there!
