Hey!My name is Anupritee Saikia,25years old.

I want to bring into a matter of serious concern about the mental health issues.The way mental health is seen.The stigma that one has to talk openly about mental health.i want to bring a small change among the people so that people don't see mental health issues as something out of the world, something totally abnormal..it is just a disease of the mind just like if there can be a physical illness..

I want to share this because I have mental health issues for the last 2years.I was not at all aware of it nor my parents were that much aware.I was suicidal.All day I could think of was a way to how to wipe out my existence.Nothing else I could think at that time.All I felt was completely hopeless, worthless, my existence doesn't matter at all.It will not affect anyone if I die also except for my parents and my brother.I am of no use to this earth.

So ,it's better I die because I was not able to feel happy a little bit also though I wanted to be.

So I wanted to kill myself.I had attempted suicide several times.For god's sake I was being saved.

I had went to many psychiatrist,pshychologist and took different medications but I was not at all getting any effect after taking medicines and also after having the sessions.

I was like this for two consecutive years.i didn't want to do anything.i slept all day night sometimes.And sometimes I didn't sleep at all.

Whenever I used to go out all I can think was why on earth I can't be happy while the others irrespective of rich/poor or the ones who are having much more serious problems or difficulties in their lives.I used to cry like hell.yep whenever I used to go out all I did was cried like hell.

So this went on for 2yrs.

Then I went to NIMHANS and thereafter when I took the medicines prescribed by them and went for regular therapy sessions with my therapist I saw something was changing.i could feel things again,not to great extent but yes something I could feel.Then it was that when I tried hard,tried to push myself hard,tried to keep motivating myself in every single way it was possible.I am still fighting.Now I just don't want to give up.i will keep fighting till my last breath and won't let my illness win.

In the process I just want to help somebody out there who might have been feeling completely hopeless and have totally /almost have lost the desire to live.

If I can help one person also I will think my purpose on earth is being served.

That's all thank you
