A: You would have to figure out how many prayers you read in this impure state. All the prayers read in such a state would have to be repeated.
To remove your depression, find a better alternative. For example, take to marriage if you have the financial ability to do so. If you lack the funds to do so, merely take to fasting if your health permits. Abstain from looking at haram. Perform all your salah on time. Dedicate to reading quran for a portion of your day (30 minutes each day, etc.)

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
