What would make the biggest difference, in specifically dealing with such recurrent gloomy ruminations, would be, in addition to medication, to see a good local shrink providing CBT (Cognitive-behaviour Therapy ) style counselling, which specifically targets changing negative and depression-inducing thights. It doesn't need to take long, and is practical and sensible rather than airy-fairy.
