I can totally relate with what you are going through. I recently had a Major Depressive Episode for which I was hospitalized. I have dealt with Depression and Anxiety for 12 years and this was the first time I needed that kind of intervention. I am an avid weightlifter/bodybuilder and have used it as a means of getting through the difficult times. Recently, I didn't care whether I lifted or not as I was severely depressed in July but after my release from hospital I started back at it - it felt so good. Then I had tingling in my legs - the doctors say it is not a disk but a muscle - priformis syndrome - it has prevented me from lifting. I cannot even do dips or chinups because it seems to set off the tingling again - rest and time off they say. I am totally discouraged by this - first my mind and then my body. It is contributing to my depression. I have to head to bed - but I will post tomorrow to talk about it some more with you.
