I had tried to commit suicide one night; I had bipolar disorder- Shama Sikander talks about depression


Shama Sikander made headlines when she returned post her break from the glamour world. Well, Shama opened up on about the two-year break and how she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. 
Talking about it, she told a leading daily, "I started finding conversations boring. I didn't want to meet anyone and stopped liking myself. Everybody I met during that phase was bored of life. My career and love life added to the stress. I wasn't eating or looking right. This can't be overnight; I am sure it must have been accumulating since several years."
 
"No body in family could figure that why is Shama getting isolated, it was her ex, Alexx O'Neil, who understood the issues she's going through. Shama shared, "Alexx, who has a degree in Psychology, suspected that I had bipolar disorder and advised me to consult a doctor. But at that time, I didn't want to get cured; I just wanted to give up. Though my life was going great, I was bored of it; nothing would impress or excite me. I even tried to commit suicide one night. I kissed my mother good night and told her not to wake me up. After that, I swallowed several sleeping pills at one go. Just before slipping away, I texted my brother my bank account details, which made him panic. He immediately called my mother to check on me and I was rushed to the hospital three hours later."
 
She added, "I was angry with my family for saving me. I wanted to go and return as a new person. I didn't see death as the end; rather, it was the beginning of a new life. I didn't know that a rebirth was possible in the same life. But slowly, my soul awakened and I realised that it was a spiritual calling."
 
Shama also told that the path to her full recovery wasn't an easy one. "Like many others, my parents too thought that I was possessed because they didn't have any idea about bipolar disorder. If you know about it, you will not judge others. I have always been well-behaved and responsible, so I wouldn't react in public. Only my family saw my extreme reactions. I would leave a party the moment I felt like snapping at someone. I didn't want to lose self-control in public and the fact that I couldn't check my emotions bothered me," continued Shama. 
 
Well, it was not the medication which helped her to come out of her bad phase. According to her, she changed her perspective of seeing life. She has always targeted that she has got her liposuction done. 
 
In this interview, she rubbished all the rumours and said, "Everybody is looking for a quick-fix solution, but I have not undergone any surgery. When there are fillers available, why do you need surgery? There was a time when I considered liposuction, but when the doctor explained the procedure to me, I dropped the idea. It took me two years to get back into shape. The change in me came from within. I think good thoughts, which is why I look better now."
