My mind doesn't shut off, I feel like I can't make contact

I'm depressed. I have anxiety too! And OCD. My mind doesn't shut off and I feel like I can't make contact with other people. It's scaring the hell out of me!!! I feel like the only emotions I can feel are anxiety and depression and fear. Other than that, I feel empty. Like nothing means anything. And yes, I'm on an antidepressant and I exercise, eat right and take vitamins. I don't know when my mind turned against me. I look at other people living so carefree and wonder why I can't be that way. I feel flat in my emotions, but today I cried. I don't know how much more I can take. I feel like I have nothing inside me to hold onto. Does that make sense? Please help!
