When you survive a critical illness, and everyone starts to look up to you and your story as “an inspiration" or "a warrior" or “a determined survivor”. What does it really leave you feeling? Charged up or exhausted? To never be able to express how you feel emotionally in an attempt to always put this mask of bravado, has its own consequences. This week Pallavi along with her guest and renowned Psycho-therapist Dr Arvinder Singh explores why it is important to talk and seek counsel, after going through an exasperating physical and emotional roller coaster like Cancer and how important it is to shred that mask.
