Fighting Depression? You Are Not Alone – Mental Health Helplines
Mental Health – A Real problem that is not getting enough focus
In our hectic lives – running behind money, success, fame we somehow lose ourselves.
In this race, there is more at stake to lose than gain
Depression, anxiety are real problems but are not treated like one
Every smiling person isn’t happy…what one is going thru is really hard to guess especially when they try hard enough to hide it
There are thousands of people out there who are suffering from Depression
Thousands of lives out there who are having suicidal thoughts, who are fighting & facing this every day, who just need someone to lean on, someone to listen
But they don’t get the support they need to overcome this
I have been through this. I lived with it
For 2 years I was in depression, even today sometimes I get panic attacks.
I know how hard it is. Those two years were living hell
I have been through everything – Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, that feeling of being broken, lost
Not feeling like you are worth anything, I had suicidal thoughts, self-harm
And the worst part, I was alone, I never shared anything with anyone
Until one day my dad figured it out… If it wasn’t for him, maybe I won’t be here at all.
When he found out, he didn’t try to fix me or advised me to overcome this.
No, he just held me & he was just there.
He just listened to me, he let me get it all out of my system. He is my biggest support system.
Even today when I have a panic attack or a nightmare, he is the first person to know
A person who will be with me the whole time, holding me, hugging me until I’m ok.
I know it is really hard to get thru this but you can & best thing is you don’t have to do this alone
Your loved ones are here, I’m here…get in touch with me whenever you need
Here is a humble request to all Try to be there for your loved ones, If you ever feel there is someone who might be going through this
