I also have a once a week drink of whiskey, not sure thats helping either.

    But for sure, if I do weight training, I feel terrible depression for the next 3 or 4 days... its terrible.
    That's interesting. Why do you think weight training makes you feel depressed?
    Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. —Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish, Game of Thrones

    I was told to avoid stimulants like coffee. What if you avoid caffeine and then try working out?

    not sure why the weights make me feel like that. I was told it could be because of the raise in cortisol it produces and the lactic acid build up it induces.

    AngelBebe95:

    What triggers me is the sudden rush of a thought into my mind of something that makes me anxious (personally: my failing marriage, financial concerns, etc) and I get an almost immediate cardiac reaction and feeling that everything is happening a million miles an hour.

    This right here. Ever since I got tested for marfan's syndrome, it's always the heart scare.

    sounds like,"Body memories." In my 20's i was like top gun flexible and sometimes if I even jump ski style i miss the slopes. Ironically I pass out if I get too cold. And the 1st time was at the ice rink. So when I even see ice skating on tv now, it makes me feel depressed over my loss of youth.

    For me it's mostly, like, school and long-term projects for my AP Lang class. I've had anxiety for years, but nothing has set me off as often or intensely since I was 13 (about four years ago, for reference). Another big one is leaving the house without showering, for whatever reason. I think it's a control thing. Bright lights and loud sounds definitely make me more generally anxious though.
