it sucks, and it seems counterintuitive to what you really WANT to do, but it's better than spending a few hours pondering how you can get in a horrible car accident and make it LOOK like an accident!

I know but it gets extremely boring and frustrating at some point.

Hmmm...I'm quite new to this. I never thought many NTs felt depressed or least admitted it to anyone. This is one of the reasons why I thought I was an INFP/INFJ since I had a quite human interior behind my rather cold exterior. It's not like you are alone in this. You have to adapt the harsh reality, since this is either a biological problem (in which I would strongly advise help, sorry, but you cannot deny medical attention for an illness like that), social problem, or both. In my first year at a college away from home, I felt significantly depressed and lonely; in fact, I still have my grey days of sadness - the worst kind - where you are exposed of all your weaknesses as a social human being: not knowing anyone, not being able to connect, not being able to meet members of the opposite sex, not even knowing what to say to anyone, etc. I'd go many days without talking, except for the obligatory "Thanks" or "Excuse Me." The worst kind of loneliness is when you are surrounded by people, not when you are "literally" alone, in my opinion at least. The depression I've had created a snowball effect of paranoid fears that it'd always be this way and that I'd be an old not having experienced the joys of youth and humanity. I didn't read everything in this thread, so I apologize if I seem like another useless comment. I'm not really sure the degree of your depression (Are you clinically ill or taking medication? Or is this a self-diagnosis?).
>Some people told me that depression is something that always stick with them
That's kind of true, but the degrees are different for everyone obviously. I know for every day I'll be happy, there'll be about a week I'll be sad and that's how it usually is for me, but just keep pushing.

Me too I slept all fucking day. Lucky me.
But there were times when I couldn't sleep, it kinda alternated.
