Depression is one of the commonest mental illness affecting all ages of people. It affects one out of four individual.
- Disturbed sleep
- Disturbed appetite
- Sad mood
- Negative thoughts
- Suicidal wishes
- Lack of confidence
- Inability to perform work
These symptoms can be easily felt by anybody but still, we tend to ignore them. Why is it so? Why is it so difficult to say my brain is not thinking right? It's going in the wrong direction.
According to my understanding, it's difficult because a person can accept weakness/illness of body but it takes great courage to say to oneself that my mind is getting weak/ill. How can the mind get weak? It is supposed to work healthy all the time. Let it be so I will fix it or my mind will fix it on its own but it never happens.
I would like to explain in simple words if your TV or Refrigerator does not work properly you seek the help of a technician. You seek the help of a doctor to take care of body illness then why not to seek the help of psychiatrist or psychologist to help your brain to think right.
So its ok to be depressed and its ok to get help.
Talk to someone when you are depressed, there is nothing to hide about it.
