#TheDepression: Here are 5 Bollywood Celebrities Who Battled Depression
Depression is a heavy word in itself! One doesn’t really know what is it? Why does it happen? How does it happen?
These questions haunt the person and are deep to understand.
Depression is not just about “Feeling Down” it’s more than that. It’s a very serious condition and also common one.
Not only Deepika Padukone, Karan Johar revealed that he also was a victim of depression. Here are 5 celebrities who have suffered this depression problem and also have won over it!
“There were days when I would feel okay, but at times, within a day, there was a roller-coaster of feelings. Finally, I accepted my condition. The counseling helped, but only to an extent. Then, I took medication, and today I am much better.”
“It was the darkest period of my life. I can’t explain the pain, anxiety, anguish. [I felt] helpless. Unhappy. Sad. Wanting to get onto a flight, always leaving the city… and walking the streets of other cities with nothing to say to anyone. Not even getting out of my bed from my hotel room sometimes. I wasn’t able to share this with anyone. I was making up meetings and reasons for me to leave the city. I found comfort in sleeping on a long-haul flight, waking up in a city where I didn’t have to meet people.”
“I feel so much healthy and refreshed from within — due to the injury and the suffering I had got into a depression mode but now I am out of it. I feel happy and boosted with energy.”

“It went on for 18 months, during which I changed four doctors, the medication wasn’t working on me and crazy things were happening,”
“I was depressed. I was not clinically declared depressed but I was heading there. I was very sad to a certain degree. I don’t want to use the term ‘depression’ loosely because it’s a serious illness. It definitely effected my mental health. I was prescribed and did see a doctor for it as well.”
