Sports and exercise are great , as well as enjoying your favorite hobby, but it is very hard to motivate yourself to do these activities when depressed. Please seek a doctors advice for possible anti depressant meds and counseling.

Hi @kenny1999 as @PhanthomJay mentions, we cannot give medical advice here. Have you talked with your family doctor about this? I need to close this thread now per the PF rules about not giving medical advice, but feel free to reach out to me via PM. Thanks, and best wishes.
