Depression And Anxiety

I've battled with depression and anxiety disorders since I was in high school. I tend to get worked up over everything, and I can turn the tiniest little issue into a complete and total catastrophe. I really hate the feelings associated with depression and anxiety. I've learned that exercising really helps to keep my mental symptoms to a minimum. I'm also Buddhist and I chant daily...the act of chanting allows me to vocalize, which is an awesome stress reliever for me. That's about all I've got to say on this for now. I'm such a n00b here. Heh.
