Im having trouble bringing myself to do any coding in DM. I dont have the spark anymore that gave me the fire to learn. What can I do, ii want to make a game but I cant bring myself to do it.

That's a hard thing to give advice to because you say that you want to make a game, but can't bring yourself to actually do it. What you said may be a paradox. I think you should explain your situation more thoroughly because it seems as if your body won't allow your mind to do what it wants, which isn't really possible.
From inferring what you meant by that, have you ever written down ideas or the foundations for the game on paper in English or pseudocode, then transferring it to DM? Staring at a blank BYOND environment causes many beginners frustation. I came to BYOND at first wanting to make a cool game... I got a good feeling from the idea of creating something fun, but I had no idea how to start. I probably would have never started learning DM if I hadn't got so frustrated from the lack of work done on the programmers part and all the work I did as an icon artist and idea gatherer that I needed to produce something BETTER.
In essence, once you make the foundations for a game, it's very easy to pick up and expand from that, but starting is the hardest part. You just have to do it.
