Medicowesome secret project: Let's talk about asking for help

What is the "Let's talk" project? How can I talk about mental illnesses?
Hey my name is Tavleen Bedi and I have OCD and anxiety. Not the cute kinds where you go check whether you have locked home or not. Well, I had that too but mine was the debilitating kinds.

For two years I fought a battle. I didn't know what would happen. I was labelled mad. I was made fun of when I decided to take help and you know who ridiculed me the most, they were people from my same community - medicos, people who are considered intellectuals.

But that didn't stop me from asking from help and I'm very proud of it because I asked help rather than jumping off from my hostel building. I never could do it. I can really understand how painful it must be for some people that they choose to say goodbye - It's not that people don't fight, they fight but they have this dog around them which tells them it won't be alright. Don't think that it's what weak people have or it won't happen to me, trust me, it can happen to anyone.

All I want to say is reach out just ask for help. 

And like professor Dumbledore rightly said - "Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it."
