Missie, depression is a very debilitating condition (I guess you know that, huh?). Others are right--you need to get out of the house. If you are uncomfortable driving, there are other ways to get around. Also, you mentioned that prozac oversedates you. There are many other very good SSRIs (anti-depressants) (e.g., Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft, etc...) that will not necessarily have the same effects on an individual. I took Prozac briefly after having my girls for post-partum depression, and that drug had the opposite effect on me. I became very jittery and jumpy, couldn't sleep. And I was on a very low dose. It was not the right drug for me.
Also, talk therapy should not be underestimated. If you don't have insurance, you may qualify for state assistance, and you can receive mental health services through your state. Even if you only went to see a counselor once a month, you may find it tremendously helpful. I would recommend that, if you have a choice, you see either a psychologist or a clinical social worker. A psychiatrist may prescribe you a good anti-depressant, but they are horrible talk therapists. A psychologist and clinical social worker are trained in talk therapy.
Pastors offering pastoral counseling are also good options that you might wish to take advantage of. At my church, some of the pastors (I go to a fairly large church) offer pastoral counseling free of charge. Many churches also participate in the Stephen Ministry, which is a lay ministry that trains people to serve as crisis counselors. If you participate in the Stephen Ministry, you will be assigned a Stephen Minister, who can meet with you once a week, help you to get out more, talk to you about your depression, chronic illness, other health conditions, and address your spirituality concerns. I'm not trying to push religion; just wanted you to know that Stephen Ministry exists--and is free.
I hope you feel better soon.
