> I'll just add to this thread that when I was really depressed, exercise, if I could get myself to do it, made me feel better for an hour or two.
I think there is a certain amount of invigoration or energization that I feel immediately after exercise. I doubt that this is much different from that which otherwise healthy people experience. However, it really doesn't affect my depression at all.
In the meantime, I will continue to exercise while I can. There are, of course, other benefits that can be had from doing it.
