I Want To Feel Normal Again.

Depression can make you lose interest in the things you usually like doing. Finding motivation is not always that easy, but not impossible. You may want to take a look in One Step at a Time, there are a few motivational topics in there that may help you.
Please make yourself feel at home.

All I have been doing is sleeping and nothing else. I don't want to be around people.
But I'm doing fine at work. All my hobbies such as shooting, jetsking and hanging out with friends I don't want to do anymore.
I went through that very thing when I was a teen and also recently last year where I lost all interest and motivation to do anything. It can be terrible difficult to keep moving forward when depressed but you can recover, many of us here have.
How long have you been feeling this way? Has it just been in the last few months or have you had to deal with this for longer?
The ability to make others laugh when you yourself are in pain shows there is hope. To have hope for yourself and for others to have hope in you.

I'm sorry you are feeling that way. I also struggled with a lack of interest in the activities I once enjoyed. I implore you to talk to your doctor about all of your symptoms and concerns, as he or she will know the best course of action to take. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is very effective for anhedonia, so that may also be a possible treatment. If you are doing well at work, then that is a good sign; being able to function shows that you have caught your symptoms early, before they have a chance to seriously affect your life. Take advantage of this and speak with a professional.
Good luck! Keep us posted.
