This is a subreddit for those who suffer from any mental health problems, from depression to OCD. This place is for promoting the importance of fitness for your physical and psychological well being.
/r/EOOD is not a replacement for your Doctor!
While we have learned exercise and healthy living are a cornerstone for mental health, it is not intended to be a replacement for medication. Prior to any change in medication or physical activity level it is imperative to speak with a professional. There are numerous risk factors that can make exercise dangerous. Just as altering medications suddenly can have severe consequences. A professional placed you on the medications, they should be the one to take you off of them. Any post encouraging self experimentation with medications, or advocating disregard of doctor's instructions will not be tolerated. This is for your safety!
Here you can discuss your fitness journey, progress, struggles and successes. This is a safe place where you can discuss your mental health without judgement & receive exercise advice sensitive to any struggles you may have. We understand how you feel.
Here you will find a few things:
A friendly and supportive environment
Exercise tips and advice
Somewhere to discuss fitness & mental health
A place to discuss opinions, share articles and learn
Bullies, trolls, pro suicide, incitement to self harm, outright mocking, or anything intended to cause others to feel unhappy or uncomfortable will not be tolerated. We are here to support other people. If you feel that anyone is breaking any of these rules then please use the report button or message a moderator.
Please note. We are not /r/depression or any other illness/mental health related subreddit. We would like to encourage all posts to be related to fitness in order for this sub to remain true to it's name. We discourage self-identification. Whether you include details of your mental health in your post is up to you. Please respect people and what they write. You do not know what they are going through, what is going on in their head and how they are coping. Respect that.
For help choosing exercise programmes or general fitness FAQ please visit /r/fitness and read their sidebar, they have some fantastic information there.
