Sushant Singh Rajput’s death has started a conversation about mental health perhaps above everything else. Despite the ongoing CBI investigation everyone agrees with the fact that Sushant was suffering from various mental health issues before his death. In a report published by NDTV, Sushant’s doctor from November recalled diagnosing the doctor with depression and anxiety.
In the statement, the doctor wrote, “After that, on the date 28/11/2019, around 9:00 AM, during the visit to Hinduja Health Care Hospital, I examined and met Sushant Singh Rajput for the first time. At that time, he told me things like he is not getting sleep or has any appetite, he doesn’t like anything in life now, he doesn’t wish to live and he is afraid all the time. On that, I primarily diagnosed the ailment Sushant Singh Rajput was suffering from to be depression and anxiety. He told me that he is experiencing these symptoms for the last 10 days.”
The doctor further noted saying, “It was evident from the words of Sushant Singh Rajput, that nothing is happening as per his expectation and that he is insecure. But, the reason was appearing to be negative thoughts in his mind. No strong outer reason was seen for such feelings of his in the examination. Hence, he was a patient falling in the 80 percent grid, as above. Depression can occur to such patients due to thyroid deficiencies, Vitamin B12 & D3 deficiencies, Hemoglobin deficiencies, and imbalance in some chemicals and stimulants in the brain like Serotonin. Some peculiar patients also get anxiety and depression due to heredity.”
