I run. I have run two marathons, about a dozen half marathons and races of many distances. When I am training for a marathon I run 40 miles a week. So, I think I could say I exercise. Guess what? The despair, the inability to sleep, the feeling of sinking into quicksand, of being in this deep dark place that I couldn't get out of - it was there. I did usually feel slightly better immediately after a run, but this by no means conquered the problem. Serzone helps as does my therapy. It is true that when I'm training for a marathon it's not as bad. The natural endorphins I suppose. But therapy and medication do for me what exercise doesn't. I don't think you understand that what we're talking about here is a little more than feeling blah. But thank you for trying to help. For those of you wondering how I do this when depressed, I just force myself.
