Unforutnately, these were exactly the types of replies that I was trying to avoid (especially the very first one by Buckeye Fan, which was in my personal view, a steaming turd of an insult to my intelligence).

I can assure 'Buckeye Fan' that as I exercised over a period of time (years), I never developed any kind of 'adaptation' of sorts which caused my depressive reaction to subside. Your statement of, "The good news is that over time as the body re-adjusts to our increased exercise output...we feel BETTER" is simply not applicable - hence why I asked Chemist or Dr. Bob for their input instead of layperson armchair advice from someone who has never been in my shoes before. The most recent reply is probably the closest thing yet to what I've been looking for - but still isn't descriptive enough to match my problem.

I've exercised on and off for years at all intensities and types -- either isotonic (weight lifting) by itself or aerobic (running, etc.) by itself. The result has been the same. I realize full and well the benefits of exercise and this has nothing to do with why I made my initial posting. Someone with some decent understaning of human hormone interactions within the central servous system or someone who has *BEEN IN MY SHOES BEFORE*, please post a reply worthy of actually reading, instead of armchair advice from joe average who exercises every day without a problem and can't understand why I *DO* have a problem. Thanks in advance.
