DEPRESSION

Today I read the newspaper and one article grabs my attention it's about Depression. According to WHO in India over 5 crores, people suffer from depression. Depression comes from chemical imbalances in the brain, hormonal changes or things going on in our life. Women suffer from depression twice as often as men. It affects that part of the brain which is associated with emotions such as anger, sexual arousal, sorrows, fear, and pleasure.

Depression may happen after a big change in life such as the loss of a loved one. It affects you mentally as well as physically; erratic sleep habits, loss of appetite, muscle aches, headaches, back pain, irritability, excessive crying etc. Depression doesn't kill you directly but it increases the risk of suicide, heart disease, stroke, drug/alcohol abuse and so on. 

Normally people don't talk much about this issue because they think no one will understand or maybe others will make fun of them (talking from personal experience). Yes, there was a time when I suffer from depression and there is no one with me at that time. I help myself and overcame from depression. Hiding it is not a solution. A person must need treatment or he/she can cure themselves by doing daily exercises or medication, eat a healthy diet, avoid drug or alcohol, get some sunlight, stay connected with society, share your problems whom you trust, get some time for yourself at least 15 minutes daily and if you still not overcome from depression then consult a specialist. 

I hope my this article will bring some awareness and I'm glad if I can help someone or somebody by writing this.
