    If you're on any kind of brain chemistry meds maybe it's messing something up there. Exercise may tire you out, but it's not supposed to make you feel sad.

    It might be because of your diet. The body craves certain things after a workout like glucose, so if you have low blood sugar or not enough of other nutrients, your body might be responding with depression.

    If you're anything like me, no, it will not.

    After any type of workout I feel amazing.

    Is there any chance that medication you are taking interferes with the natural exercise/endorphin effect?

    Seriously.

    It could have to do with trained response. What were your gym teachers like when you were younger?

    i hate physical activity it had nothing to do with the teachers. and i'm uncoordinated so when i was young i'd embarrass myself by being uncoordinated.
