I'm struggling with my running too SF. Which means I've put weight on, which people are starting to notice. Getting out of bed can be a challenge too.

If I don't go for a run, I try and least go for a walk. Gets me outside and into fresh air.

Moving home does feel like a huge decision, but I just have this feeling that I'd like to live somewhere else.

It's interesting to see how many people have had significant success with running to supplement and promote their mental health. I've recently come across several figures from the ultra running scene who have had significant mental health issues (Rob Krar to name but one) and serious addiction (Tim Olsen) coincidentally both running for North Face.

I think over time I'll divulge a little more, but for now guys I'll stay part of the conversation if that's ok? Stiff upper lip and all that, happy, safe, injury free running to one and all!

I used to use running as way of coping with my anxiety - it 'levelled' me. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with depression around the same time as an injury stopped me running, so I was actually worse off having lost my coping mechanism.

Of course Kimmy, that's understandable. I "lurked" in this forum for months before I posted for the first time!
