Hi Lolli, Welcome to healing well forum we are so happy to have you join us here. Shyn has given you some excellent advice. There are so many people that do not have insurance coverage and it is really sad. I wonder if you have tried going to the Division of Family Services and applying for Medicaid Coverage if you state has it? Most do and it is income based which would help with doctor visits and prescriptions. If this isn’t an option for you then perhaps you could see your primary care doctor and tell them what is going on most times doctors get samples of antidepressants and are more then willing to pass these along to their patients. Also there are plans called Partnership for Patient Assistance where they help with the cost of your medications if you cant pay for them...the drug companies are also doing this to help people too. There are forms that you can fill out online for these plans. So getting medications for depression now a days is so much easier.
As for one on one help maybe you can see about some support groups in your area. Often times local hospitals, churches and even the Samaritan Center hold support groups for people with depression.
I understand when you suffer a traumatic event in your life and how it alters everything around you. It is hard not to focus on that but; depression is very serious and left untreated it leads nowhere. If you want to get better then you need to get some professional help. I am going to leave you some links at the bottom here I hope that you do check them out.
