Chronic health condition and depression

Hi everyone-

I was hoping I could get some advice on digging myself out of this metaphorical hole I'm in right now! I got diagnosed with a movement disorder called hereditary spastic paraplegia about a year ago and have had pretty severe depression and anxiety since then. It's a progressive neurological disorder but it's getting worse faster than I thought it would. The symptoms are basically an awkward gait when walking and can't run or jump. The depression is what is really getting in the way of moving forward though. Does anyone have advice on working through a situation like this?
