I have a different opinion. I think you are right to make yourself exercise even if you don't want to. Exercise releases enodorphins, the brain's "feel-good" chemicals, and it has been proven to help with depression. Not as an only treatment, but it does help. Even though it may be the last thing in the world you feel like doing.
As long as you are moving forward, the pace of it may change. Sometimes you go slower, sometimes quicker, but keep going forward. Every time you are faced with a choice, try to make it a good one. If you like, get active on the boards. You will get a lot of support.
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
