Curse these complex, mysterious bodies! There is no way to win with them. I'm guessing that to feel better (emotionally, mentally, physically), one has to keep up with exercise and a healthy diet, and fight through the initial inertia. It may even be easier if you choose a more fun and enjoyable activity for exercise (this varies for people).
Depression is also quite an enigma that rarely makes sense. I'm sure that there is always a cause, but we may not be aware of most of them. It takes one random thought, seeing some event that triggers something, etc. and the depression drags you down. That's why I mentioned CBT to you before, which helps you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings. With awareness comes the opportunity to fight back the sometimes irrational ideas.
Well, good luck to you in your quest to conquer your depression. Sometimes there is nothing more to do than to keep on trying. And I give the same advice to Richard, even though he has probably already given up after trying for years with no success. But who knows? The body and mind are mysterious things, so there's always the possibility of change.
I am going to try turning to Buddhism to see if I can find a lighter 'path'. I think the meditation and change of view on myself might be good for me.
