Ask your doctor about quetiapine. Off label it’s used to help with sleep, but it has a stabilizing aspect to it, too.

I’m just worried you’ll use that and then when it stops working, because they all seem to do that eventually, you will be worse off than before because you haven’t addressed the cause.

I don’t know you, but I want you to get better. Chemical control of depression can have adverse affects.
Thanks for the advice. Looks like I'm doomed lol

If a medication is on the market it's been shown to work. There are no shortcuts to finding the one that works best at the right dosage for you biochemistry. This is true for all of us. This process is not a waste time, it is doing something about the illness that's ravaging you, incapacitating you.

If your symptoms are really bad I can think of no reason why not to try medications to reduce them. Trying and giving up after one, two or three is ignoring that this is a process.
