Zara came forward with her struggles with depression and revealed that she was diagnosed with clinical depression.

It kept creeping up and taking over the best of me. Then I realized that I should get it checked and I found out that it is borderline clinical depression. Doctors recommended medicines and therapy which I went for.”

That fear is what makes you sulk deep into the darkness. So just before you make a judgment about someone, STOP and think about the inner battle that they are constantly fighting.”
