I'm 22 and I've been clinically depressed for over half my life. Any one else on here who's working out as part of a plan to get through depression or other mental health problems?
Hi! Yes I'm hoping that adding serious regular exercise to my routine will help my depression as meds are letting me down. Good to know I'm not the only one. Best of luck to you!
I am also a patient of anxiety and depression.
Hi! I have major depression and my doctor told me that exercising regularly is a very good antidepressant because it makes the release of neurotransmeters like serotonine and dopamine in the brain that improve humor. So I'm gonna get started exercising everyday to improve my mental health. Good luck to you and don't give up!!
I think I am. My ex left me again, he's an alcoholic and we have been struggling with his disease for 4 years. I have gained a lot of weight since then and don't feel happy anymore. I used to exercise all the time but have gained like 80 lbs. I thought maybe if I started exercising the endorphins would make me feel less depressed.
