Hey Garnet,

Exercising. Believe it or not, I use to exercise all the time. Walking several miles per week and we have a whole gym set up down stairs which I used religiously and loved. Since this started, I will actually start having a anxiety attack at just the thought. I have no idea why. Forced myself on my treadmill one day and was totally freaking out within an hour after finishing.

I think my body is so drained that it only fatigued me more. Have had blood work back in November. Everything showed O.K. Was tested also and diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, so doc said I couldn't do any major work outs because it would stress my adrenals even more. So I have to take things slow and build back up. Just slow walks and maybe some yoga, but have lost so much motivation at this point and am so agoraphobic, walking outside terrifies me. If I could just keep trying to push myself and get my but out onto the street. Sounds so stupid. I don't understand it.

My experience was the opposite. There had been a lot of stressful situations building up to the point before everything in my life locked up and it was a particular situation that was kind of like the cherry on top that caused the total breakdown. I am a chronic worrier and I allowed myself to get emotionally involved with things that I should have kept at a distance. I feel like at that point my stress level just went into overload and topped out.

I agree so much about how the physical stress that accompanies the constant adrenal rush just wears you out.

Had considered maoi's because of suggestions here, but for me, I need to try some other things first, because like I said before. I was never depressed before. Only got depressed because my life has become so altered now. Sux!

Thanks for all the advice. Will keep pushing forward.

Courtney
