Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your labs are all normal and fatigue and depression are connected. You should consider psychotherapy sessions and a good antidepressant.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
