‘I Woke Up In The Hospital’: It Took Everything For Me to Fight Depression & Rebuild Myself

Jaikishaan Sharma thought all was lost when a series of unfortunate events struck. He then went on a journey of battling depression and healing his physical and mental health, to be able to rebuild his life.

‘I Woke Up In The Hospital’: It Took Everything For Me to Fight Depression & Rebuild Myself

Trigger warning: Mention of suicide.

Jaikishaan Sharma’s decision to start his venture DreamChair Club was driven in part by his personal journey of ups and downs. The foundation that helps people across the globe to find motivation amidst testing times was born from a “very trying period” in the 38-year-old’s life. 

The mindset coach learnt early on how unpredictable life can be when his father — whose dream it was to see Jaikishaan pursue a master’s degree in Australia — passed away soon after he landed there. But he braved the turmoil this phase brought in his life, completed his degree, worked and earned enough to move into his dream home with his wife in 2010. 

He recalls being excited at starting what he thought would be the most exciting chapter in his life but soon proved to be otherwise. Jaikishaan’s story is not simply a testament to the power of unwavering support by loved ones but also about the beauty of a positive perspective.
