The Real Killer is Depression

A 19-year-old college student swiped a pistol from his shooting club, went back to college and shot himself in the toilet. 

The Inti College Subang student’s body was discovered by a janitor at 5.56 PM on Tuesday. 

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadari said the victim’s body was discovered along with the pistol beside him. He added that the victim had allegedly stolen the weapon from the club some two hours before the body was discovered. 

The victim’s father had stated that the boy had been suffering from depression since a year ago. 

Good God, and nothing was done to help him?

The real killer is not the gun; the real killer is depression. 

I have requested a good friend Mirosha Somasundram to share her perspective on this torment I call “depression”. 

"Depression doesn't only happen to someone who is merely just sad. You can be surrounded by a bunch of loved ones at the best party in town and still feel alone. You can be the most successful person in town and still have depression. 

Depression doesn't go away in a blink of an eye. It fades away and comes back out of nowhere. Its mostly just concealed in hiding. 

Acceptance and sharing this with the right people saves you from it. It keeps you sane. Be a depression survivor. You're not alone". 

Mirosha is right. For those of you who suffer from depression, you're not alone.

You don't have to be alone. There's always someone out there who is there for you!
