I'm depressed, but in an usual way. Apart from some anxiety, I feel no emotion, nor do I feel pleasure. Everything I used to care about has disappeared, and I'm left doing the same things day-in-day-out. I am 18 now, but I live like an old man that watches Jeopardy! all day and reminisces on what could be.

I know I need meds, and I know I should exercise, but fuck - what do I do until then? I've fallen completely out of line with the rest of people. Apart from Stoicism to help me get through with my job, no intellectual hobby is of any use. Nothing is entertaining. I don't have anything to do.

Do you have any ideas at all for what I can do, or how I should approach my new life? Please don't just say "Try a new hobby", I've already tried a ton.

That's not depressed in an unusual way. That's run-of-the-mill depression

Treat it the same way as every other case: therapy, meds, physical health improvement. You may need meds to get started on the others--so be it.

Isn't it odd that I can enjoy basically nothing? And I don't feel any regular negative emotions - my experience is just a constant neutral, boring state of non-enjoyment. For most people, depression appears to involve self-hate or wanting to die, but I don't even have those.

Will diet and exercise really restore life to me? I mean, I've never fully committed to either, but I just don't picture that happening, though I will try it.

Maybe something is wrong in your brain, like a chemical imbalance. Try seeing a doctor to get it checked out

Yeah, I've known I had to do that for a long time. Really, this thread is kind of pointless. It just sucks to live through this time period, waiting for things to get better. I'm not sure how to face it.

Just be upfront about it

Same; I'm dysthmic and anhedonic.
