DEEPIKA PADUKONE POSTS A MESSAGE ABOUT DEPRESSION

Mental health issues are most common these days. While there are a number of categories to this disease,  most common one is depression. It is important to know that depression is not just a state of mind but a situation which leaves the person with no hopes. Depressed person is the one who has no willing to live. Deepika Padukone, who has also been suffering from same in the past posted a message on her organisation's official page 'The Live Love Laugh Foundation'. The organisation was started by Deepika in the wake of depression and its causes. Deepika Padukone on Tuesday reposted a message by The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), her organization that deals with mental health issues. In the post, the recent suicides of designer Kate Spade and chef Anthony Bourdain have been used as examples to spark a new conversation about the misunderstood ‘illness’. The message read; “Every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide,” the note begins, quoting WHO statistics. “Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain were pioneers in their fields... and to the outside world they ‘had it all’ and were seemingly ‘happy’”. But would we ask someone who ‘had it all’ how they broke their foot, or how they met with an accident? That is the question that Deepika poses in the post. “The element of depression that is grossly misunderstood is that you have control over your illness,” the post continues. “Asking someone to ‘snap out of it’ is like telling a person with a broken foot to continue walking.” [caption id="attachment_39278" align="alignnone" width="716"] source/Instagram[/caption] A person who is into depression may feel low on energy, body aches, headaches and cramps, irritative behaviour, insomnia/excessive sleep, feeling of guilt, worthlessness, losing interest in activities, difficulty in concentration/making decisions, change in appetite and weight, negative thoughts, lack of confidence, social withdrawal and thoughts about suicide and death. In fact, depression is one of the most common causes of suicide and therefore, something that can be prevented.
