A client shared with me recently about her intense depression episodes that she is currently having. She has hardly slept for the last few weeks.
Her family and friends are helpless. She sees doctors who tell her what to do and takes pills that disconnect her even more from her body.
The range of mental health issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, alcohol and drug abuse is wide. Recent studies show globally 300 million people are affected by depression, women more than men. I assume the estimated number of unreported cases is much higher.
For many people it’s hard to understand the suffering she is going through – but I have been there!
