Hey all ! I am Ankit
Today I am here to share one of my experience about mental health issue with you all
One of my friends called me oye pagal (MENTAL),After hearing that words there was a silent storm in my mind…I was thinking that is he right ?..yesterday my psychiatrist had told me that you have symptoms of bipolarity (A mental disorder)
Does bipolarity means MENTAL ? ohh yes I remembered that I asked same question to psychiatrist and She said “not at all” very kindly she replied ; Bipolarity refers as a mental disorder which has symptoms like overthinking, headache, sudden change in emotions, tired ness , cut out with society , appetite loss etc Anyone can show this symptoms & can easily recover from this …
But how ?
My mind was stuck on that perticular words CUT OUT WITH SOCIETY…will society accept my bipolarity ? With whom shall I talk to? Who will understand my situation ?
I come from a middle class family…where psychiatrists consider as a doctor of mental people, so how could I tell them ; I was diving into the thoughts of future. Imagine there was a situation in my surroundings where going on any topic at that moment my observations & my opinion are entirely different from rest of other (if you are from middle class family then you can imagine what will happen)…then people started making assumptions – ohh we can understand you are suffering from any mental disability so you can think only like this . But there is no any matter of being wrong and being right , The matter is how people treats a person who is suffering from mental health…
I was in the ocean suddenly a healing voice awoke me and said hey don’t take stress take your medicine.
I was in fear because the same situation was with my mom and that time there was no one for her …and one thing I decided that Today I will talk to my mom and tell her everything.
Now my friend has come to me & I gave him a smile and asked what happened?
I remembered that lesson which my mom told me that day ” YOU ARE A HUMAN”
