Medicowesome secret project: Let's talk about unhappiness

What is the "Let's talk" project? How can I talk about mental illnesses?
Hi Nakeya.

Your post on low self esteem was really really good. I am also going through this and at sometimes, I feel like quitting everything. But seriously, you are my motivation. I am trying to work on myself.

I also have a story to tell.

During my pre-med (PMT) times, I grabbed a seat in a dental college but I was unhappy. I wanted to do MBBS.

I don't know what precipitated it but I was so stressed and unsatisfied with what I was doing that I had a brief psychotic episode (Now after reading behavioral science I know what I was going through).

My parents understood me, they were so worried about me that they thought it was best for me to leave the dentistry college.

I started preparing for PMT and in just 5-6 months, I got best medical college in our state.

I remember my fathers words, "Chinti baar baar diwar par chadti hai, fir girti hai, par kabhi haar nahi manti". Translates to: Ants - Fall and slip a hundred times while climbing walls, but they never quit. Those words got stuck in my mind and I gave my best. That period was worst part in my life. Remembering that psychotic episode, I get jitters. But that moment also gave me strength to overcome any hurdle.

I also have an inferiority complex when I compare myself to others and get anxious at every step. But I try to relax and say that no fear is greater than what I have gone through. 'I can and I will' succeed.
