“In my third year of therapy and antidepressants, I don’t sleep at night without taking my cipralex tablet. Depression is like nothing, it makes you feel like nothing from the inside.

Doctors / Los Professionals have been my only hope, “Danish wrote in one of his tweets, while in others he described in detail the effects of mental illness.
