I don't think anything will help me :( watch

    So I have severe depression and anxiety and I'm currently on my 5th type of antidepressant. I was also having CBT, which I've had in the past and it didn't work but I gave it another go and it wasn't working at all again so me and the person I did it with decided to stop it because it's not helping. I'm just wondering what the next step is? I asked the guy for my CBT but he didn't really give me an answer he just kept saying well it doesn't work for everyone and it's quite difficult to find other treatments because CBT is the most popular method. So now I'm just left thinking well what happens to the people that CBT doesn't work for? I feel like I'm just beyond help, it looks like nothing will help me. I feel so hopeless. He says he'll talk to my GP so I'm hoping my GP with have something else in place because medication alone just isn't enough, if I even find one that works. I think my GP and CBT guy think I need more as well because I've been like this for years, starting in my teen years maybe in my childhood so I feel like my illness is just integrated into my personality. I told them I don't really want help, I'm just getting help because I know I need it. It's like a war in my head, a constant argument. Depression is such a huge part of me that I feel close to it in a way and I don't want to let it go. What happens to the people that need help and have gone to seek it but nothing works? I just need to know what other options I have, maybe something I can actually ask the doctor that I can be referred to something. What do I do if there's nothing else? I would just like some comfort in knowing some other options because as you can probably tell, I'm starting to think that if there's no other options of help, what do I do...I know I'll just get worse if I know nothing else can be done
