I'm unable to work out. I'm getting ready to go in for a major surgery....total knee revision.  It's too painful to exercise right now.

I try to do anything to keep my body in motion and my mind focus on something. Not to be constantly be lying down or being stationary in one place sitting or play on my phone makes me feel worst. There still will be days my symptoms is really bad so resting is a must. I can't eat any kind of foods now due to being sensitive to anything. Any kind of carbs or sugar sets me off, like im going to die.

Mark....

I'm unable to exercise right now. All I've done is sit around for nearly 2 years watching TV or playing on social media. Not healthy. I don't feel healthy.
Plus, I've been in chronic pain which has caused severe depression.
As well as having to taper off 2 meds at the same time.  I've felt pretty bad for the past 2 years.
I don't like what I've become.

Early in my withdrawal I had to workout everyday due to stress and I guess anger? I needed an outlet and even though it felt like it wasnít helping, I went through with it anyway. I ended up burning out and completely stopped as I started feeling a bit better. Turns out all the time spent exercising did indeed help as I still retain the flexibility and strength gained from those days. I now lift every now and then and go for walks. Iím not doing nearly as much as I wish to.

If I remember correctly I kept getting random injuries in various parts of my body. Sometimes they come back but I realized that as long as I rest to full recovery they usually donít come back. Now Iím working on building up a good exercise routine without forcing it so I donít burn out again.

Before 2002: 2/3 times a week
2002-2005: once a day
2005-now: 4-8 times a day.

This mess made me a full time athlete. Sports has been my way out of this mess and my goal is to win running matches to raise awareness what psychiatry and their medication do to people.

In short: yes, I work out  :P

[...].....I think it's great you work out. I really miss it. I can't because of my knee. It's been over 2 years now since I've had a routine for the gym. I'm having my knee revision on Nov 21st. I'm really hoping it helps. I need to get back to the gym. I'm so out of shape and miserable now.

It is also important to give yourself a break when it gets too difficult .
I know people who take too much on themselves and later in life they get even more problem.
A friend of mine (absolutely healthy young man) needs to buy viagra online in order to have relations with the woman and i honestly think the reason for that is that he did too much sports in the past.
