How I got over depression.

I’m writing this post as part of my mission to create awareness amongst people regarding depression.

(I am not a doctor or a therapist. I’m just someone who has been through depression and wants to save others from it’s clutches.)

God and my doctor saved me.

It’s been more than a year since I’ve been going for therapy.

I have changed completely. I have become a happier person.

 I went to a neuropsychiatrist who gave me medication to lessen my anxiety and depression.

People all around the world have this strange misconception that the medicines given for depression have an affect on your health in the long-run.

That is completely wrong. The medicines which I took were mild and were effective in calming me down and I was on a prescription for a short period of time (a little over a year) and I will soon get off medicines.

It is of utmost importance to seek medical help incase you or your loved ones are depressed.

Ignoring the issue or even saying that you can cope with it, will make things even tougher to handle.

Stop looking at depression and mental health issues as a deterrent to your success. 

You should realize that adequate help is available for the same, and seeking help with change your life and make you so much calmer.

Seeking help does not make you weak. It makes you stronger.

Just like we go to doctors for our physical illnesses, we should seek medical help for our mental illnesses.

Make sure you go to a good doctor, who is genuinely good and helpful.

Look at the change in me. From being someone who didn’t want to live, I’ve become someone who is motivating others and lending a helping hand to others with depression.

I’m a live example to show that therapy and medication for depression truly works.
