“My 3rd year through therapy and anti depressants, I don’t sleep at night without taking my cipralex tablet. Depression doesn’t look like anything, it makes you feel like nothing from within. Hard to describe, harder to understand. Doctors / professionals have been my only hope,” Danish Sait wrote on Twitter.

Retweeting him, Deepika Padukone wrote, “It is extremely heartening to see so many of you coming out and sharing your experience with mental illness.”
