To start with - let me tell you that I never ever imagined I'll ever fall into anxiety or depression which is in reality the extreme mental state one could possibly be in, or think of.
It all started with a panic attack and then another within a month and another, which for me had no end at that time - all due to my overthinking, compulsive thoughts and behaviors' which took shape of a deadly fear that was always taking a toll on me as if it was the end of my life, something is going to happen really bad, and I may have a life-threatening disease/ condition. These thoughts were actually out of my control and only the people who suffer from it can understand how bad it is.
Initially, I thought things will improve over the course of time and I kept finding an escape from getting any professional help. But very soon I realized that I need some expert to bring me out of this phase, and finally I decided to go for it since there was nothing to lose considering the compromised quality of life I was dealing with. The real me was deep down buried inside and what I became as a result of continuous fear was a man haunted by almost everything in this beautiful world.
One fine day I found Dr. Akanksha on Practo and got an appointment - I can still remember the very first day I met her. Just by looking at me she found out everything about my condition before I could even tell her all, and that's the way she is - an expert in mental health who can cut down your mental worries by half just by talking to you for a few minutes during a consultation.
As a person she is very humble, ever smiling, and soft-spoken with a really caring approach towards her patients. She prescribed me with light supportive medication (and not anti-depressants) combined with weekly talk therapy sessions. The entire regime worked as a wonder and my quality of life improved month by month.
In the first 1-2 months it looked quite difficult to me but I decided to not lose hope and continue, while putting all the trust in her approach towards my case. Month by month I started feeling the change and gradually 6 months passed by and I was normal again with almost zero withdrawal difficulties.
I am now the same person I used to be and really thankful to her for making it possible. I actually have got a loss of words now to explain what change she made into my life when all the hope was lost.
You can trust this review - go ahead and talk to her if you have any sort of mental health issues - you'll not be disappointed.
Thanks for the revival ma'am - you came into my life like a guardian angel 😇

M so glad for this journey you have travelled till date. I still remember your anxious face when you first came to OPD...
And as what happens usually , that when a person comes to a mental health professional for help it has already been late to try anything except medicine for instant relief...and what is needed is patience and trust from patient s side .. which you invested in me.
That trust where you know that even if anything goes wrong I ll be there to help you...in times of crisis... And in the end that trust from your side and my efforts finally succeed...!!
Stay blessed with the best of mental health always..
