She knows that she has a very loving family. Her privileged is huge and can relax when she wants to but that does not mean she cannot feel what she is feeling.

Pain

She has also shared about her panic attacks and anxiety and how anxiety can be a by-product of depression and vice versa. The most sensitive thing in the book is suicide and a person who goes through suicidal thoughts. We live in a world where people say who commit suicide are coward and do not have the strength to face the reality of life but no one wonders that if the same thing is said to a cancer patient how it would be.

“The psychotically depressed person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of hopelessness not because death seems suddenly appealing, the person will kill herself the same way a trapped person jumps out of the window of a burning high rise. Their terror for falling from a great height is still just as great as it would be for you or me. The variable here is the other terror. The fire flames when the flames get close enough falling to death becomes the slightly less terrible of the two terrors”

It is so simple that the patient was suffering a lot so to get rid of pain she dies. The same thing happens with the person going through depression. They even go through the pain and could not resist the pain and decide to die.

She concludes

“Pain and Suffering birth creativity. It births inevitable triumph and heroes”

She says

Depression has given me perspective. My notions of success, beauty, fame, power- ideas that controlled me for so long- have all changed

Shaheen Bhatt: ‘I thrived on being the center of attention, till Alia was born’

“My father stopped drinking just days after I was born. He lifted me into his arms one evening and I immediately turned my face away from his, repelled by the smell of alcohol on his breath. This rejection from his own child was too much for him to bear and he never touched alcohol again.”
