> I don't think when it can and cannot help has been clearly established either. I would like to see one clinical trial that shows that exercise has no effect on major depression. We do have clinical trials showing that major depression can beneifit from exercise though. I personally know of a guy who failed ECT, and is having success with exercise and CBT so go figure.

Was he depressed or was he depressed?

I still think we have a problem in the identification of what we are trying to treat. ECT and antidepressants will probably fail every time when treating someone whose depression is entirely psychogenic.

I experienced a brief depression during the time my depression was in remission.

Better said:

I expererienced a brief psychogenic depression during the time my endogenous bipolar depression was in remission. Yes. A girl dumped me. I got depressed. It felt entirely different than the depression that was in remission. Not only that, but it resolved completely once I processed the event psychologically.

A depression is not a depression is not a depression.

What exactly are we talking about when we use the word "depression"?
