"Five Years Ago I Attempted Suicide" Says TV Actress Shama Sikander!

By


Shama Sikander best remembered for her role as Pooja Mehta in Ye Meri Life Hai had been out of of media lime light for quite some time. Two years back she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. The fight of mental health is harder for celebrities, for the fear of being judged is even more. At a certain point of time she also  tried attempting suicide! OMG!
In an interview to TOI, Shama talked about in length about her mental health and many more. She said," 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." 


Her Ex  Alexx O'Neil, first realised that she needed medical treatment. Shama recalls, "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 also 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."

She is a true fighter and winner. More power to you girl!
