I'm 19 and I can relate. I feel as though I missed out on a lot, messed up on a lot, and I would look back and imagine what could have been. You have 24 hrs in a single day and you're in your mid twenties so, there's definitely no turning back however there is definitely a ladder at your disposal and you can choose whether or not you want to climb out of this pit that you've gotten yourself in. It'll take a lot of willpower but it can be done and with 8 billion people in this World and with so many that have passed away, surely there have been a great number who have gone through worse or something similar to what you're going through and have made it out and became successful. You can be one of them.
Depression makes things worse because when you decide to look back at everything and to allow stress into your life it makes everything on your shoulder a lot heavier because you're continually creating a mental impact upon yourself and this wares you down mentally. The body needs a captain to move its ship but it cannot be done if the captain is sleepy or exhausted the engine just won't start. It's easy to push things until tomorrow, telling yourself ''just one more day, just more time'' is easy and it will keep happening because if you told yourself that just today, will be the last day to chill out, etc before you start doing something with your self then you will tell yourself this soon afterwards too think about it as 'climbing back down the ladder you were climbing, just to take a break, even though you were halfway to the top'. Write a list of everything no matter how ridiculous it sounds of what you want to accomplish and where you want to see yourself in one year. Muster up all your might and strength and get things done one by one. Finding a job is a full-time job and so you'll need to spend a minimum of 6 hours a day looking for a job, handing applications, resumes out to numerous of places. Find a job that you'd like to do because you may need money now but 3 months later you'll become bored at this job and the job itself will feel like a chore. Find your passion, pursue it, and make money from it. I'm an athlete and I make money as a bicycle courier so this way I get to pedal as fast as I possibly can and make money doing it. Great cardio and I love it, and I have a lot of fun doing it and so work is never ever a chore, it's playtime.
P. S I'm not saying you need a job, in case you already have one but I was just making an example0

Psychotherapy can be helpful for figuring out and taking steps to cope with what triggered the depressive symptoms in the first place.
While antidepressants aren’t appropriate in every situation, they can be helpful in cases where there’s a family history of depression. A doctor or mental health practitioner can help figure out the best treatment plan for you.
Wishing you the best of luck.0
