Stress and Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and Depression – Easy Way to Your Mind
After writing the article “A depressed girl and the butterfly effect” (Check https://udaypai.in/a-depressed-girl-and-the-butterfly-effect/), I have not touched this subject. But an interesting case came up couple of months ago.
Ashwin (not real name), a software engineer working in Sunnyvale and my regular reader, visited me two months ago. A curious case. He said: “They have started treating me for dysthymia. I met lot of doctors; I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, anxiety neurosis and major depression respectively. I tried many things – Yoga, meditation, pranayama, prayers, alternative medicines, holistic, Ayurveda, Homeopathy…Now I am on modern psychiatric drugs and heavy anti-depressants… The dosage is getting heavier…I think I have no scope in life…I am scared but getting suicidal thoughts…I have come to meet you as a last resort”
I have put in the disclaimer. “I am not a counselor. Nor a psychiatrist or psychologist. Not a healer or miracle maker. I don’t even believe in spiritual healing. I am just an ordinary human being.”
“But you have researched about it. You will have some solution…”Ashwin said.
“Ashwin, I have not researched on psychology. My subject is only mind. However, I know that most forms of mental illness can be cured. Depression has 100 percent cure if you address it early. It’s difficult (but not impossible) to come out of such disorders, once brain mapping is confirmed wave pattern anomalies and the dependency on drugs make the cases worse…I am sorry that I cannot do anything. That’s neither my job nor my focus. You better see some expert doctors…”
