I can understand being depressed even when there doesn't seem to be a reason for it. If therapy hasn't helped then I hope searching for peace from within will. I began my search for this by learning about compassion from the Dali Lama's books. He says that much of the anger and drepression in the world comes about because we are not compassionate enough about life around us. I think it would help you to read "Loving Kindness" by Sharon Salzberg. Also "The Art of Happiness" the Dali Lama. Just reading his words should bring some comfort to you. He is such a kind and loving person. His words are very inspiring. If you want to learn more about Buddhism then try reading "Awakening the Buddha Within" by Lama Suri Das. Maybe this will help you find your way. I hope so.
Wishing you peace, Grace
