On the first day of my visit, I had lost all the hopes of coming back to the normal stage. At the age of 59, I had come to consult the doctor, not only for depression. This time it was accompanied by loss of my most precious, lovely son, aged 32. It was a life time challenge.
Initially the days were very painful. As I used to get up in the morning, the first thought used to be ' Ohh no, one more day to pass' ! Forcing myself to eat, struggling to get relief from negative thoughts. Very miserable days.
I approached Dr. Niket Kasar. Doctor adviced me to get engage somewhere. I started going to 'Day Care Centre for Old People' runned by Anuradha Karkare madam. Slowly I started taking interest there.
Medicines, Counselling and Consultation I was doing reregularly. Doctor Niket Kasar's approach was very supportive. He never gave the feeling of hurrying up. Listening compassionately, suggesting right steps and assurance of ' I am available to you whenever you need' received from the doctor in this journey.
Side by side, I took admission for 'Diploma in Counselling Psychology'. initially the concentration, grasping power was very low. The study of mind was helpful not only for me, but to understand other people. I started feeling better. In Covid period, I started learning 'Bhagwat Geeta' online. It was pleasure giving seva in Geeta Pariwar by performing different roles. My confidence, happiness started improving.
Now I am on lowest dose. State of mind is balanced most of the time.
