I've suffered depression and anxiety/panic attacks for a decade, and have been suicidal since I hit my teens. My family just tried to get me locked up in a mental hospital because I realized I'd been veg for 10 years and failed to change any of them toward caring about animals. :/
In my case, depression comes from seeing what others do not...life is like a war zone to vegans and the worst of it is, that the mass population are oblivious to it...even people who I love- family and friends, I cannot help but also hate as they are killing innocent animals everyday...
Also wanted to say I didn't really understand depression before my bereavements. now I do. Plus want to share this link - http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/ I found it rather insightful, funny, poignant and touching.
You are definitely not the only person experiencing depression. There are a lot of us about. My depression came way before I became a vegan. If anything being vegan removes some of the existential triggers from my life.
Don't focus on "cheering up" or trying to live up to others expectations. Just try to find a way to be in the world, seek joy where you can and cherish it when you find it, however fleeting.
