I have been there.  It sounds like you’re depressed and you’re definitely in a rough spot.  I’m glad you’ve tried counseling, but I think that you’ll find that there isn’t a magic fix; no one can tell you “do this and you’ll be happy.”  Sometimes life is a slog.  

First of all, you don’t have to feel guilty for feeling this way when you know other people are going through worse things.  There is always someone who has it worse and it is okay to feel depressed, you’ll just make yourself feel worse if you let yourself slip into feeling guilty about feeling the way you are.

Secondly, clinical depression can be treated in many ways, but they all involve a professional.  I have never found a counselor I’ve clicked with, but I have seen people who have turn their lives around so I’m still looking.  I would suggest trying to find a different counselor or at least telling the one you’ve been going to why you feel she isn’t helping so she can either change tactics or tell you why she’s taking the approach that she is.

I really wish I could help you.  Please know that you’re not alone, and that you’re not crazy or selfish for feeling that way.

You sound depressed. I’d make an appointment to discuss those feelings with a doctor who can then discuss treatment options with you and help you get off the sad cycle.
