    No one has zero accomplishments. At the very least you have the accomplishment of enduring your horrible physical experiences.

    than to serve and obey them. - David Hume

    The vast majority of everyone can handle these physical experiences with ease. I'm just a whiny little bitch.

    It hurts too much. It really does. And hurting is the only way I know it's working but I don't want it to hurt because it hurts. I don't know how I stood it back when I was in gym class because every time I think back to that class I only remember it as being horrifically painful, in pain every single fucking day of my life and nothing ever getting any better.

    I can't do this anymore. I know I need to work out or else I'll be diabetic in like five years so I need to exercise but I can't because I think it will be horrifically painful like it was back then.

    And I know it will be, because that's the only way I know it will work.

    And because I know it will be, my body tenses into pretzels and it hurts even worse.

    I am so weak. Even if it's 100% mental my mind is so weak.

    Help me.
    Exercise and weight loss is always painful. If it doesn't hurt, you are doing it wrong. The principle way to surmount this pain is to realize that the alternatives are even more painful.

    Exercise hurts a lot less than the jabbing yourself with needles everyday to maintain insulin levels.

    Exercise hurts a lot less than losing your eyesight, or having a limb amputated, because of a diabetic episode.

    Exercise hurts a lot less than a heart attack, and much less than a stroke.

    Exercise hurts a lot less than the repeated social rejection caused by being obese.

    If you are too mentally weak to delay gratification, you need a drill sergeant.

    I've lost 10 lbs with no pain.

    I'm totally doing it wrong.

    I need a drill sargeant, except under any pressure my body completely shuts down. That's where these chronic infections keep coming from...

    So what was the point of your OP?

    I presume you are doing low-intensity cardio? That'll only get you so far.

    Perhaps a stress management coach and then a drill sergeant?

    Chronic infections come from a weakened immune system...which likely resulted from poor diet, lack of exercise, and high stress. It appears that you are on your way to fixing this.

    My immune system has always been very weak. What always happens is that it's stress stress stress and when I finally think I can't take it anymore it turns out I have a high fever and a tendency to vomit, and then it's time to break out the antibiotics again. Like clockwork, actually.

    4 days of giggly fever is better 4 months of such pain that you're not able to get up stairs, or at least that's what I think.

    What is stressing you out? Job? Kids? Marriage? Lack thereof?

    Do you have some medical condition that makes it physically difficult for you to exercise? Because even painful exercise should not make you physically disabled...just very sore.

    I don't think I know the whole story here.

    Having a body. Existing, in general.

    I am afraid I cannot help you with existential stressors.

    That's the fun part!

    And you recovered after a full night's sleep?

    Is there any help for them? I'm pretty sure they're killing me. I often find myself wishing I had never been born.

    No, in fact it was much worse. 4 months of constant pain and I did not even exercise every day.
