i was in second year of medical school when my mental condition begin deteriorating,may be due

to severe stress or other factors unknown ,instead of a promise of bright future ,i crashed down to
severe depression unable to concentrate on studies ,i had nowhere to go ,hopeless ,waiting to be
doomed ,then i met Dr. sandeep ,who i now know has a high level of expertise in his field and otherwise
a brilliant man too,with medical support and my will to recover i overcame the problem and i am now
preparing for my M.D .I just want to say that a positive hope of future has far more power than any
amount of negative past.instead of any regret i now recall that phase as my victory over a big challenge
as if i have climbed mount everest .finally in this truly age of information the queries are waiting to be
answered at the click of the mouse.thank you ....
