I’m not happy where I’m at in life right now. I’m 20 years old and I just can’t seem to do healthy things for myself.

Howdy there! I can totally understand where you're coming from. Sometimes, it takes such a gargantuan effort to fight depression, it leaves us mentally exhausted. If I may suggest something, make a daily list of what you would like to accomplish. Doesn't have to be anything huge, just some simple, easy tasks. Make sure to have a small reward to give yourself once you completed a task. Things like that can make doing even tiny things much more meaningful. You're not alone in this fight! If you ever need to talk or to vent, we're all here for you
And so are you! You need to remember that you're a special, wonderful person that deserves happiness! The depression is just like the old boogeyman adults warned you about when you were a kid. It only scares you if you let it. And you're not useless! Hey, you've come here looking for advice! That means a lot! Stay positive and if you need a friendly ear to bend, I'm here to listen
