Frustration

Today, I found out I need surgery for a hernia that blew up after working out. I’ve been working out constantly to keep my mind off of my ex, who was the right person at the wrong time, and now I can’t even do that. FML

You need therapy, not body taxing workouts to injure yourself. After the surgery and physiotherapy, seek talk therapy. You needed to improve your mental health, not overdo your physical health. Get well.

Working out is actually great for mental health. I only started after hitting a new low at age 29, and it's amazing how much it helps.

I do agree it helps but it isn't the cure for mental health problems. The time when I was most fit and working out way more than now was also the time when my mental health was the worst it's ever been.

working out is good but avoidance is not. you're going to face your feelings sooner or later, avoiding them isn't going to work. when you get better use exercise as a way to help with the coping process and not a tool escape your problems
