And welcome to the Healing Well depression forum. You will find that there is a wonderful bunch of people here that are very kind and compssionate. Also very understanding and nonjudgemental.
Different antidepressants work differently on different people. A lot of differents.LOL... It took me many tries before I found what was right for me. So it could for you, or you could find something right away.
Counseling is good. Sometimes you don't realize that it is helping you when it is, so don't give up on that. It is really important. And it could take a little while before you start to feel better. You really have to be quite truthful too in order for it to help you.
I wish you the best, keep posting
