I usually try to use my depression as positive fuel to get things done and say #*%& off world!
I can use rage as a fuel. I can use sadness as a fuel or brokrn heart as a fuel for rage, which then fuels my productivity. But I can't turn depression into fuel
I get you, the only thing I can truly do against it is just don't let it take over me, like even if the house is on fire I have objectives I must finish no matter the context, hope you get better :c
Whenever I still get hit by depressive episodes and need to get some work done, I find what helps is to make a momentum. Start doing some easy task. Anything, so long as you can do it without thinking too hard on it. Then gradually work your way up to harder tasks.
