Been into a battle with Clinical Depression and Anxiety for 5 years due to career and relationship issues. Solitude and loneliness taught me a lot and they have been my best friends for quite sometime. Along with medication, I've been into therapy and I know the importance of it. Just having someone to talk to during tough times means a lot. Looking forward to help people in need and my little contribution to help them get through will make me happier. Google the meaning of - "Meraki" - that's me !

Visual Communication Designer. I have had ADHD, i.e. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, since December 2019. For me, working on being consistent as ADHDers was very difficult as we (AHDHers) are not very consistent in things, or we tend to not plan our day, or even if we do, it’s difficult to stick to it. So therefore I am working on myself.

Software Engineer. I experienced depression due to some differences in my family where we did not talk for almost 3 months.
Went through a bad heartbreak - I had no idea what it is like to go through something like this. I didn't know how to talk about it with others or how to help myself. I had days where I felt constant anxiety and sadness. I needed someone to talk to, but I was way too reserved to tell anyone. Took the decision to connect with a psychiatrist & it helped my depression. I understood that for good mental health - ultimately we all need someone who can understand us. It is for the same reason that I am on SoulUp.

Entrepreneur. I have been overweight since childhood. Realised much later in life how this unresolved trauma from my childhood affected my mental state leaving me a traumatised adult and a clingy partner. Trust issues, a constant fear of abandonment and me feeling unloved affected my marriage greatly which further worsened matters. I hit rock bottom in my life- lost my sanity, my business took a huge hit and I underwent depression for more than a year. Took therapy and now I am on the path to healing.
