Deepika Padukone opens up to Meghan Markle about mental health

Deepika Padukone has opened up once again about mental health in an interview with Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Padukone who has been a regular advocate of mental health, shared that she was diagnosed with depression in 2014.

In Markle’s podcast Archetypes, Padukone said, “I woke up, I fell. My blood pressure dropped. And then the next thing I know, my life just felt meaningless. I didn’t want to live anymore. I didn’t want to get out of bed. And I struggled with this for, for many, many months. I would just break down at the drop of a hat. Not be present. Like I’d be talking to someone or be, you know, be at an event or be engaging with someone, but my mind’s somewhere else.”

She further stated that her parents were about to leave after visiting her on one occasion. She broke down and started crying. Padukone said, “And my mom was like, what’s wrong? Is it your relationship? Has someone said something to you? I said I don’t know. I’ve been feeling like this for many, many months. I just keep crying. I don’t know why. It’s a feeling of hopelessness. You just feel hopeless. You feel like there’s no point in living.”
