Acceptance and treatment: First thing is acceptance,accepting it is a challenge. I thought I am too strong to undergo depression. I visited the doctor my teacher suggested, only because she is my teacher and I could not refuse her. I was confident that the doctor can’t cure me. I have to endure it, life long. Family support: My younger sister had to leave her classes to accompany me to college as I just did not want to go to college alone. My mother showed how strong she is- she never left me alone. She took me to morning walk, evening walk, did regular exercise and yoga with me. It was a really tough phase. We took second opinion, the doctor said- “She will not be able to complete her MBA, get her married”. My mother replied, “I have brought her up, I know she will do it and will be fine”. Sleep: I was put on sedatives, and I started sleeping for 10–15 hours straight. Yoga and meditation: I started doing yoga, exercises like bhramri and kapal bharti
