I read this post with interest. Whilst I enjoy keeping fit in general it's running which makes me feel like I'm actually alive. I'm now injured and I feel so depressed. Going to book into a physio tomorrow but I just feel like when I talk about this to anybody who isn't on the same wavelength then I feel like I'm an alien and they really don't understand. Just get the typical "don't be silly" "rest will do you good anyway" "you don't have anything to be depressed about" and so on. so now I just keep quiet and try to deal with these episodes alone. I think I do need to try and get something else in my life so that when I do get injured I don't feel totally lost and angry and in despair.
