    I've played video games since I was 2. Now I'm sick of all the games I can play; most games nowadays I suck at so badly I can't stand to play. So now it feels like I have nothing. :blub:

    What do you do when the only thing you can do in life kicks you to the curb?

    Try something else. Working out is a good option.

    I've already tried different college courses, sports, exercise, reading, TV, etc. There's just nothing for me. =/ Everybody else has something, but not me. All I can do is continue to play video games that are too hard for me and torture myself for not being able to succeed at the one thing I've done my entire life.

    Work on your fitness? Learn an instrument? Learn more about subjects you're interested in? Learn a language?
    Pick a random hobby and stick with it. Even if you don't enjoy it at first, you'll learn to.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Looking into volunteering at a cat shelter, and maybe a gym.

    And yeah, I do take my games a little too seriously. I just feel ashamed that I spent practically my whole life doing it and am still bad at it.

    Make life a hobby. Say Hi to people... interact...., all I can promise you is that it never gets old.

    I have very poor social skills so that's a no go.

    Argh, why can't I enjoy anything at all? Can't even watch TV. Wish I could stay asleep forever. :sad:

    Hey sounds like you need to get your doctor to look at different medication for you reasses what is going on maybe need new types of depression meds or even some for attention problems but go in and talk with your doctor okay.
    Call crisis and let them know good people there to with ideas to help. I hope you can reach out and try volunteering your time to help others take care

    I've been on over 30 medications with no success, had ECT, and am on my 8th therapist. =/ No sign of my depression letting up in the near future. Doubt I could help anyone anyway.
