I want to tell you a story. A story of my struggle with depression and hope it helps others going through it and let them know they are not alone.

A lot of incidents in my life like accidents, financial failure, daughter’s health, and many other incidents got the better of me and one day 10 years ago, I had my first attack; like I would not
breath, shaky, dizzy, chest pain, sadness, hopelessness, life’s everyday tasks were difficult to handle and I would cry for no reason at all.

My family was very supportive but they also did not know how to deal with me. I was afraid of taking anti-depressant tablets because everyone told me it will have side effects. I tried many
alternative therapies, it would calm me for that time and then it would start again. In the end I felt I can’t carry on and so many negative thoughts would come my way. Then one fine day I realised I had to go to the psychiatrist and that is how I came to Dr. Shamsah Sonawalla at her TransMag Clinic. That day I felt I have come to the right place. She was calm, pleasant, patient and not judgmental. I felt I can be myself. She started me on small doses for my anxiety and depression. From then on I went for regular checkups and today I cant tell how I feel, I found a new life worth living. I thank her from the bottom of my heart. This is to just tell others who are suffering with depression and anxiety to take help from a doctor as you cant fight it alone.

No matter how dark it seems, the sun will always find its way to come out. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

After much deliberation, I went to see Dr. Shamsah Sonawalla for my Depression and the negative thoughts that made difficult for me leading a normal life. She is instrumental in changing my life around and today I feel good about everything and stay away from those lonely negative bouts, and this is only due to her treatment. My fears of side effects due to medicines had been carefully addressed and understood and doses reduced as per the progress. If anyone is battling depression, dont look any further, she is the very right person to seek for. Awesome! Excellent! more..
