Exercise is actually great for the liver and most doctors want you to exercise. If you don't have any issues from anemia from treatment and you have no issues with your spleen, you can do anything you want w/regards to exercise. That said, check with your doctor first to make sure that the rest of your body is okay for exercise, i.e., your heart, lungs, etc.
Avatar f tn Funny story about exersise and depression.... I was struck down with severe depression at the age of 23. At that time I was in my 5th year of very extensive and intense body building and was at the competitive level. My physical state was off the chart perfect and yet I fell into a very dark place for no situational reason at all, as everything was perfect in my life and I had never suffered any past trama. Months later it got so bad that I attempted suicide and was hospitalized.
Avatar m tn Another paper published in 2011 stated “Effective detection and treatment of inadequate vitamin D levels in persons with depression and other mental disorders may be an easy and cost-effective therapy which could improve patients’ long-term health outcomes as well as their quality of life.” If you are going to use a vitamin D supplement, you also need to take vitamin K2 and magnesium, as these nutrients work together. I would have my levels checked.
6231275 tn?1379901818 s Anxiety and Depression program have really helped me. Also, rituals (exercise, eating well, meditation). HTP-5, calcium magnesium, vitamin d are supplements that really help depression and anxiety. Good luck. You have to work at it. It *****, but you just do. Hard work.
Avatar n tn My question is, does this seem like an appropriate course of treatment? Is there anything, besides exercise, avoiding alcohol, and managing stress and depression, that I ought to be doing? I am told this will not get better, and this is of course disappointing. But obviously the key thing is that it doesn't get worse. Is this realistic to hope for, or is there inevitably going to be further decline? Many thanks.

You can then discuss what treatment options would be best for you. These might include exercise, talk therapy, relaxation techniques, medication or a combination of these. All the best..
Avatar f tn I finished my TX March of 2004. Felt real bad with fatigue, brainfog, moodiness, headaches, forgetfulness, depression, etc. You all now the post treatment side effects. And how desperately you're trying to move ahead in your life and get back on your feet and be able to do the things you once enjoyed. I say it lasted a well over two years for me. Last summer of 2006 I went through what it felt like a bad case of the flu. Body aches, headaches, very tired for about a month and half.
Avatar m tn I have been living with depression for three years now. I’ve lost interest in everything. This anxiety and depression is driving me crazy. I don’t sleep well too. I wake up with headache, blood pressure and many other difficulties. I just want help for this from anyone who have experienced this in their life. Will any stress disorder treatment in Toronto like CBT Associates help for this? I have almost ruined my life with this behavior. Can anyone help?

Avatar n tn Lights out at 10:30pm. Normal night of sleep. Woke up at 6:00am with good mood and energy. Fell asleep while journaling at 7:30am and slept until 9:15am. Missed exercise class. Frustrated. Wanted to go grocery shopping before work but couldn't find motivation to get off couch until I needed to get ready at 11:15am. Felt depressed, weepy, frustrated. Sluggish and tired at work. Distracted.

Avatar f tn Now I am a single mother with my miracle son who was born a little after a year from me finishing my treatment for cancer. But now I am having so many anger problems and depression I have a serious concern for my son's health and mine. I've lost my temper a few times now and i don't feel like I'm in control of any of my emotions. I just know, I need help. My mother and family have been giving me ideas but nothing has worked.
1365508 tn?1277931459 t see life is worth living. Everything is upside down for me. I have been fighting with my depression with so many different drugs, but nothing seems working well. Wellbutrin, Alphazolam, Cymbalta, Xanax, Valium, etc...I try all of them and nothing helps. What can I do to get out of depression? It hurts me a lot and I might do something to hurt myself. I am seeking therapist treatment, but I don't think it will help me much. Please help me or show me of how to cope with depresstion.
Avatar f tn I'm currently seeing a counsellor concerning depression/anxiety, and am still wavering on the idea about telling her of my binging/laxatives/over exercising. Is a counsellor qualified anough to give me the support I want? She is unable to give out medication, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. Would you advise seeing someone different (a psychologist) and requesting medication, or sticking with therapy? What has/hasn't worked for you?
1626306 tn?1302483506 I had an epifany today.I made the connection between depression and exercise. I noticed that about 1/2 hr or so after I exercised I started to feel very down,sad,hopeless in short depressed. Of course, this has always happened but today I finally put it together. Will do research into this to see if others have it and why.
