If you don't, consider the idea of the self fulfilling prophesy. The idea that things happen because we believe they will. This is an effect that happens purely in the mind. It makes persons of minorities do terrible on tests, because they think they will do terrible, so they subconsciously try less. It is a mind thing. When we are fed beliefs by the outside world, those beliefs are given life by the mind. They are formed and worked into a perfect reflection of our expectations. Then they influence and control our behaviour.
But It's probably not that.
I'm indifferent to metaphysics. I believe in some things like psychic powers. I don't know about an exorcism, though. Chances are I would end up with a fake exorcist, and since I think it's probable that it would be fake thinking that it would work wouldn't work on me.
I don't know, maybe. But I for sure thought it was gone, I expected it to be gone for years. Those were my expectations.

Depression really can feel like another person, and it's not easy to fight it alone. I hope you're able to get it controlled soon.
I do take antidepressants, and they help, but not completely.
