I'm a 40 year old single mom of 4. I struggle with bipolar 2, ptsd, panic attacks, GAD, agoraphobia, PCOS, degenerative disc disease in my back, toes & ankles, chronically low vitamin d, etc. The older i get, the harder it seems to get to deal with the mental illness. I've been on so many medications & none of them help. i haven't worked in about 12 years at this point and struggle to even get up or bathe most days. I've heard exercise is good for depression & losing weight would definitely help my mental and physical health but i find it difficult to go alone. I would be interested in finding a couple local people who have a similar backgrounds and are also struggling with motivation to do pretty much anything but especially exercise like me to work out/ walk together, etc.

        @tameenewberg I'm in Northern Kentucky. I know exactly how you feel. And all of it makes me feel so useless and worthless which just makes the depression even worse.

          @Harlie exactly the back pain stems from an infection I acquired after a car wreck broke my humerus and I had to have surgery to place hardware which my body rejected causing a huge cyst of infection in my spine there for needing a 9 fusion of my t spine and discectimy.im now unable to do much of anything and because my husband if two years is 14 years younger we are slowly drifting apart. I can't take it I'm losing my mind my heart is so broken and all I do is cry
