Hello Doctor, Am Sasi. Am 27 year old girl. Am divorced girl. My ex husband has bipolar disorder. So we could not run our life peacefully. Now my problem is my life. During divorce process, I came separately and I run my life in hostel, also am working girl. My parents can't keep me in their home because of family status issues. I had understand their situation and I started my life with my career. Dueto my official transfer I had to move some other place. I met one person that place. I got inspired by his career attitude. Because that time my only one support is my job. He guided me very well without any expectation. He want me as a good professional girl. But the fact is I fall love with him. He too divorced. But he has a daughter. He loves her most. We shared our life each other. I felt he is very comfortable person in my life. I proposed him. He shared his previous divorce life. He told some reason why he got divorce. After apply his divorce, he come to know he is going to have a baby. But he do not want his wife in his life. Somehow he got his divorce also, he shared about his love. He loved one girl after his divorce truly. She used him financially. She left him. But He didn't forget her still. They both lived living together life 2 years I think so. She got married with high rich person. Then due to his official transfer he came to my place. He hated his ex wife very badly. But his ex wife getting nice money from him by the reason of daughter. He never say no to his daughter for anything. Then I ask him to get his daughter from his ex wife and I ask him to take care of his daughter. But she is 7 year kid. She can't come out from her mother. In between he started to like me. He got possessiveness on me. We both feel hostel life is bored. No proper food. He suffered a lot. He gave a nick name to me that am his" food angel" I can't see his sufferings. If he feel bad, automatically I helped him. Then I come to know about hi divorce cancellation. One day he received phone call from his ex wife family that his brother in law died. So his daughter got severe fever. That kid started to ask abt her father. He went their place and attended funeral. His daughter got scare of everything he stained his daughter place 3 days. All are asked him to cancel his divorce for his daughter. But his ex wifr not willing to cancel the divorce. Every family member advised her and made her to take cancel the divorce. This issue I come to know later from him. Because he knows how am loving him. I feel my extreme true love in him. I prepared myself to live his memories. I just want to be with him. Meanwhile we had physical contact with hearty relationship. Then when we both in hotel he told his divorce cancel process. I cried a lot. He told" sasi I want you in gd position. My daughter life is too important. You don't know the pain of divorce cancellation. I do not't want to see that women face. But I sacrifices my life for my daughter. You have a age, you can marry anyone as years wish. This is a life time commitment. I really do not want any additional commitment in my life. Am having enough of problem. But I keep on cry. Because I do not want to leave him. Then I feel I want to be with him as much possible. We had discussed about living together life. He told that" living together life is good but when we separate it ll hurt very bad" then he said ok for taking home and all. After divorce process also he stained with me only. He did't bring his family to his place. We started our life very peacefully. He always make aware of about people mentality. Bcoz I do not have such gd knowledge abt people mindset. He taught me everything. We both lived like a skin and nail. He started to love me a lot. Effect is I got pregnancy because of him. But my divorce was still ongoing process that time. Then he advised me to abort baby because of legal issues. I don't know what to do. Doctor advised me to continue my pregnancy for avoid future problems. But I listened to him. I feel very bad after my abortion. Still am guilty feel. I crushed my baby. Then he got official transfer he moved some other place. My parents want me in home for sometime. So I had resigned my job and went to native place. But I and him had a big question mark that what to do next in life. I informed my parents that am loving this person. But they did't agree. Suddenly his dad hot heart attack. He asked some money from me. Really he feel bad that I was not with him in his difficult situations. He told the same thing that, sasi I want you to be with me, I could not face anything without years moral support. Then after 1 month back he ask me to come to his place for marriage. We know this is illegal marriage. But he do not want his wife and I do not want anyone except him. Suddenly some misunderstanding happen between us. He scolded me a lot. But I had compromised with him. At one point I left my family for him. Before my arrival he tod that" sasi our relationship is not legal. So we should take care of some limits. But my love feel does not allow me to think anything. I just want him in my life. I came over ther. His dad want to stay with him. So I can't saty his home. So I took a hostel room temporary. He took me to his home and I stained over there for 10 days. He put leave to his office. He introduced me as a wife to his owner. Then because of his parents arrival I came back to hostel. Then again he ask me to come to his home and I stained over there. Then due to my official reason I had to move some other place for 1 month. We received one hardable news from his wife that, his daughter got sexual abuse. He immediately arrived her place and tried to solve the problem. Here, I feel uncomfortable to stay in hostel. But his permanent official transfer came. He informed his owner that he is going to vacate his home. But I asked him that I want to stay over there. He said ok to me. But he took his all things to his native. When I reach his home nothing is there except few cloths and things. He msged only one thing to me. Life will move hard as much we think. Try to save yourself. I try to be with you. My daughter suffering unwanted issue. I ll come to you soon. I understand his position. I stained very calm. But I missed him a lot. My msges made him uncomfortable. He started to feel bad abt me. At one point he msged to my mom that, I was torchering him my msges, she never ever understood his position" My parents came to my place and wantely made me return back to home. But here all are asking about him. My parents informed to everyone tha I got 2nd marriage. Now my parents giving me torcher like anything. Am suffering a lot. I want to get rid of from this home. Each and everything they are scolding me. But still can't hate him. I want my baby from him. I can not imagine anyone instead of him. Even he knows my mindset. I want to see his happiness again. He feel I did not treat him normal way. Whatever problem he has that is one part. But he forgot about my life. He did not spoke to me well when I was his home. Actually now he do not want me. His mind full of his daughter. I did not oppose his love on his daughter. But he forgot abt my life. Doctor I want him back. If I go there I do not know how he ll react to me.(i think definitely he ll react bad manner). But other point of chance is he ll accept me. He got permanent official place. Now he is staying in hostel only. Because his family stained other state. So due to language problem they never come his place. He used to visit them yearly once or twice. Now my only wish is I want baby from him. I can take care of my self and baby and if he wish I can take care of him also. Please advise me how to solve this problem smooth manner.

Despite being an outsider in the industry, Kangana Ranaut has made her mark in Bollywood. The 'Queen of Bollywood' bagged the National Award in the best actress category for the third time for her double act in the commercial hit Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Ranaut is one of the highest paid actresses in India and is known for playing emotionally intense roles in films like Gangster and Woh Lamhe. But behind the fame and the glory, lies a story of struggle and constant perseverance. Kangana's rise to fame did not happen overnight, and her travails and triumphs have quite a few important lessons stored for all of us.
Here are 4 inspiring life lessons to take away from Kangana's real life story.
1. Be Yourself - Accept yourself and embrace the person you are. Making desperate attempts to fit in a social circle or trying to make people like you could turn depressing. Be yourself and don't compromise on your identity and be afraid to have a mind of your own. Kangana has constantly inspired us to be rebellious and to question stereotypes and sexism.
'People in the industry treated me like I didn't deserve to be spoken to and I was some unwanted object. I couldn't speak English fluently and people made fun of me for that. So dealing with rejection became a part of life...Today, when people say that I have made it and made it on my own.'
She said on an interview with Daily News and Analysis
2. Deal with your relationship problems - Stop tolerating abuse. Your partner is supposed to love and support you and not hurt you physically or emotionally. Don't be afraid of getting out of a relationship. It might be difficult and hard to deal with but it's best to get over with and start afresh. Ranaut was in a relationship with Aditya Pancholi, which turned sour after he assaulted her. Later she was also in a relationship with Adhyayan Suman and Nicholas Lafferty, an English doctor, which did not last either, but she always moved on with her head held high, personifying dignity.
3. Beat the odds - There might situations when your family does not support your career choices but don't let that stop you from going ahead with it. Believe in yourself and work hard on your goals. Kangana Ranaut inspires us to not give up easily. In spite of being an industry outsider, Ranaut made her mark with remarkable performances in Fashion, Queen, Woh Lamhe and Tanu Weds Manu. She quit pursuing medical and went for modeling instead and refused to take financial aid from her father. In short, don't give up on your dreams no matter how difficult it gets.
4. There is no end to learning - You can always continue with your interests even if you have a very busy professional life. Make time for your hobbies and interests as they expand your outlook. Ranaut learns Kathak as she enjoys dancing and considers it as a form of therapy. She also did a course on the technical aspects of filmmaking from New York Film Academy. She did not let her stardom affect her personal interests and wants to have a normal life.

Depression, or major depressive disorder, is a mental health condition marked by an extended sense of sadness and despair that affects how a person thinks, feels and functions. It affects the way you think and brings about changes in your physical and emotional self. In severe cases, depression makes it extremely difficult for you in carrying out your daily activities. Yes, the condition may significantly interfere with a person's daily life and may prompt thoughts of suicide. There is no instant cure for this disorder; rather it requires a more long term approach to treat this disease.
The symptoms of depression are:
Feeling of emptiness and sadness.

Physical problems such as headache and back pain.

Recurrent thoughts of suicide and violence.
Although scientists agree that depression is a brain disorder, the debate continues about exact causes. Many factors may contribute to the onset of depression, including genetic characteristics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical illnesses, stress, grief, or substance abuse. Any of these factors alone or in combination can bring about the specific changes in brain chemistry that lead to the many symptoms of depression, bipolar disorder and related conditions.
Psychological counselling and medications are the preferred treatment alternatives for depression. The medications that are used to treat depression are antidepressants and serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It is important to consult a psychologist before opting for any treatment procedure. The doctor will carry out a thorough diagnosis and then prescribe treatment accordingly.
Psychotherapy is another treatment process that is used to treat depression; this involves you talking about your condition to a doctor. It can help you find better and feasible ways to find solutions to problems and set realistic goals in life.
Electroconvulsive therapy is another mode of treatment that uses electric currents to modify the functioning of the neurotransmitters. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
