So I had to take a slow and steady approach.
    I do go for long walks but they do nothing for my health.

    I like the slow/steady approach as well. Give an hour to enjoy whatever it is you're enjoying..

    If walking isn't helping- try stretches, dancing, pilates. Those help.

    I swore I had chronic fatigue syndrome until I was rigorous about this. So far, I've slowly regained the energy back.

    Keep pushing yourself slowly. Don't think about it as "I need" to "do this." Enjoy it. Even if it's an activity that doesn't seem to give results. Once you start, your body will crave more of it! I guarantee.

    I tried pilates, it was excruciatingly painful.

    This was how I knew it was working.

    I don't enjoy anything anymore. It's all very painful.

    Have you considered having a doctor check you out for something like FMS or chronic fatigue syndrome? That might be a cause. And hey, if he doesn't find anything wrong with you, then maybe what you need is a work out partner who can push you forward, and help you through the painful moments.

    Nothing can help me through painful moments, it's all too frightening. It's too much.

    If FMS requires any kind of painful test I can't do it.

    Walking does a LOT of good for anyone's health. You don't have to "feel a burn" to know if it is working.

    Have you talked to a doctor about your pain? It does not sound "normal".
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Okay, so really what we're struggling with is fear. You're afraid. Have you spoken to a counselor about it? Fear is meant to indicate something to you about yourself or a situation, but it's not good when it overwhelms you or makes decisions for you.

    It is normal pain, I am just a weak person.

    I do not have the resources to talk to a counselor.

    You don't have to have money to speak to a qualified counselor. You can go through health and Human Services, or the United Way, or through a church organization like Catholic Services. Most are free, or are on a sliding scale.

    There's also a program through the Midwest Center, which deals specifically with panic disorders and depression, that you can do from home if you're too uncomfortable talking to someone.
