Maya Ali opens up about her mental health
Several celebrities have opened up about their battles with a mental health issue in the recent past. They have bravely accepted living with issues ranging from anxiety to depression.
In an interview, actress Maya Ali opened up about her mental health. Talking about the anxiety and mental health issues she faced, Maya said: “I remember my exams were close and I was studying, I went to get a glass of water after that I was not in my senses. When I woke up I was in the hospital, I asked my mother to go home as I had to study, she told me that I have been in the hospital for two and a half days. It was very different for me, being 16 years girl I couldn’t understand anything. I came home and presumed that I am fine, slowly I started feeling changes in my body.”
She further added, “When I started my graduation, the doctor used to give me a medicine that I have to put beneath my tongue. Because I used to have extremely bad fits. My treatment started.”
“If someone asked my family, what has happened to her, they used to say nothing she is just not feeling well. When we had to go somewhere, my parents used to say me to put my medicine under my tongue, and not to do something there. And I always used to say that I am not doing anything intentionally, it happens to me,” Maya said.
She concluded by saying: “I was in class 10 when I saw a panel of doctors on TV talking about the symptoms of depression and anxiety. I went to my mother and told her that I have all these symptoms they are telling on TV. My mother asked me to turn off the TV and to study.”
