You cannot claim that a person does not have major depression just because they laugh or smile sometimes. Motivation is not destroyed completely in severely depressed people. In fact it can sometimes be stronger in certain aspects such as attempting to reach out for help. For example going to a message board and trying to get some support or advice. Writing for an hour and a half is not a sign that you have more motivation than a severely depressed person. Insomnia is not a sure sign of major depression. It is a symptom in some cases but sometimes the person can get very lethargic and tired. They may sleep a lot more often and in longer periods than usual. Many times they may self medicate since they really don't see any point in things. Weed only decreases a person's motivation. It's a proven fact which can be backed by anyone who smokes regularly. My advice to you is get off the pot. If not completely, then at least limit it to a couple times a week. You're using it way too much. And its not helping your situation. You do seem to have something wrong with you. And you definitely don't sound happy. If you have thought of and especially if you have tried suicide you are depressed. I don't understand how you can deny it unless you're smoking some really whacked out bud. SSRI's probably aren't the answer. You need some energy. Try something like Wellbutrin. You might not be severely depressed but you do sound like you're depressed. Try and get better and don't lose touch with reality.
