I am getting depression due to taking of exercise

Whenever I work out, I get depressed anywhere from 2-4 hours after exercising. It is mostly physical--uncontrollable crying and suicidal thoughts without any negative thoughts about myself. If I exercise consistently over the course of a week or more, my depression becomes more permanent and more psychological. I ve tried many forms of therapy and while they may help with the psychological aspects, they do not help with the crying and suicidal thoughts that come after exercising. I ve been on Wellbutrin (no other antidepressant works for me) for a year and a half and it helps my exercise-induced depression about half the time. None of my psychologists or psychiatrists have heard of this situation or know what would cause it other than a major chemical problem, and a majority of them have recommended some type of brain scan but I can t afford it because I don t have health insurance. Does anybody have any idea what this might be or what might help?

Hang out with your friends that work out

And don't work out 2-4 hours, that causes massive damage to your body

I'm a retired marine and we never work out for that much,
