By the grace of God, she summoned courage and visited her doctor, she told him about her mental health and how she’s been depressed for the past years.
Her doctor guided her and gave her some drugs that will help her get better. Her doctor started giving her advises, and tips on what to do to get rid of depression. If not that she opened up to her doctor, she might have committed suicide and been dead today. She was able to get rid of depression from her life completely through the help of her doctor.
