Depression & its treatment

 22 NOVEMBER 2016  Dr. Priyanka Kalra

She said to me:

It's hard to explain what I feel

How I am not myself anymore

How my passions don't matter to me

And somethings I don't even want to explore

They easily ask, why don't you smile

Why don't you talk or mingle with us

But it's hard to tell them, that any effort seems futile

And then they ignore me like I am an unsociable cuss

I look in the mirror and don't find myself there

The peaceful sleep, the sumptuous appetite, the 'getting ready'

And even the will to just move myself, has vanished in thin air

Burdened by the entire blame, I am so unsteady

Days turn into night, time seems to pass me by

How I wish this was over, that I could numb myself and not feel the pain

There is no ray of light, no hope, no joy

Cuz really what is left now to gain?

I say to her:.

I can only imagine, how hard it is for you

Though I can't go through that pain

Yet I feel for you

But dwelling in the sea of thoughts, what's there to gain?

Though you may not see it,

But I assure you, it's not your doing

A change in weather, that caused a loss of grit

And downhill is the direction you seem to be going

A stroke of illness or a fight with roomy

Something that upset the chemical balance

Things around went gloomy

And you lost your confidence to ambivalence

Hold on, go reach out, tell a friend,

Get help and set the balance right

It's a hard struggle, but it is not the end

Yet, those who love you, won't ever leave you in this fight

Help is only a consult away,

A chemical balance set right

A dear one who won't let you sway

You will shine like a bright light!!
