Priyanka Joshi Nair

Certified Mental Health Awareness Ambassador

Hi. I am Priyanka and am here to help women priortize their mental health and de-stress themselves completely. I am on a mission to help women lead happier lives after marriage.

 

 

My Story

 

I clearly remember waking up to an empty feeling. I hated waking up but I had a family, a daughter to look after. I would struggle daily to do minuscule looking things, writing helped me. My family and timely counselling helped me.

Today, I live with passion and purpose every single day. I am grateful for my life and I embrace it each day. In 2016, when I was diagnosed with Lymph Node Tuberculosis as many as 15 tumors were detected inside me right from my throat till my abdomen.

I spent sleepless nights away from my own daughter in fear of passing on infection to her. I lost all appetite and yet put on so much weight. I took 22 pills daily that even included steroids. 

My life seemed to be over and this probability of loss was obvious in family.  I started to feel depressed and feared that I will lose my mind. The physical ailment within me starting impacting my mental well being as well. And it was then that I decided to start blogging and bounce back to normalcy. 

My treatment finally got over and I survived with God’s grace. However, a part of me seemed to be lost forever – to depression, mental stress and anxiety. I took a decision to dedicate myself to mental health and to help anybody dealing with it through my writing and words. My current blog is dedicated to sanity.

My Message to Women

 

My dear lovelies, you are more beautiful than you think, more strong than you imagine, more evolved than you give yourself credit for and surely more empowered than society thinks.

Do not give up on your autonomy. You and only you should be in absolute control of your life, your thoughts and your desires. Giving a part of yourself to build others is a noble thing but to give up on your identity is disastrous.

Don’t change after marriage. Transform yourself to build a happy home and make sure everybody else catches up with you. Families scale up only when women rise higher and higher. Be the soaring bird that knows no noise. Be the rock that is unarmed. Be the river that flows up and onwards.
