This is a story on the Doctor and a patient: on depression. The Doctor is present in his chamber in the morning and busy diagnosing his patients. Naturally, one patient is in the room. The Doctor is taking rather a bit of time to prescribe the medication. However, this story ” the Doctor and the patient: on depression is learnable for everyone.

But outside of the chamber a patient couldn’t wait for a moment and tried to go in. Unfortunately, the attendant stopped him and told, ” Please wait for a while. You will go next after returning the former who is in.”

However, it seems that he couldn’t listen to it. The patient who was outside of the room was very unrest and deeply thoughtful about his health. His wife came with the man. When their turn came, they began to express their problems.

” What’s Your Problem?”

The Doctor asked him. But he said nothing. His wife replied:

” All-day long he is very busy and always says, ” how can I complete my office tasks? I have no time to spare for resting.”

The doctor eagerly listens to him. Practically he( the patient) used to think that his colleagues couldn’t furnish these tasks properly. So he alone must perform this works within a certain amount of time. Therefore, it is his duties to complete this heavy tasks within the stipulated time.

That’s why he was overburdened. He gradually gets worried and his mental pressure becomes high. Lastly, it takes off out of control. Hence, he booked an appointment to this renowned Psychiatry of his city.

In reply to the Doctor, he told:

” Sir, I am very busy throughout the day performing my Herculean tasks of the office. I couldn’t able to finish all the tasks within my office period. Therefore, I have to bring a lot of files in my briefcase to home for completing this office works.

” Doctor, I couldn’t bear these pressures anymore. I’m feeling unwell. Please help me to come out of this massive mental stress. I want to have a peaceful life.

” Please Doctor give me some medicines that I can overcome this burden of mind. I want to get relief? Is there any medicine that gives me relief? “

The Prescription Of The Doctor: The Doctor and a patient: on depression

The Doctor did examine nothing. Rather he stared at him and said:

” Yes, you have come to me for help. I think you trust upon me. So you have to follow my advice what I would prescribe to you. Would you?”

” Sure, Sir! Why not? I have come to you for curtailing my mental pressure and my stresses. I must follow your advice. Tell me what to be done?”

Finally, the Doctor prescribed not a single medicine. Rather he told the patient: ” I won’t write a medicine for you. Only you have to do curtail two hours from your busy schedules. You’ll walk daily for these two hours – walk until you feel fatigued.

Besides, you should provide half an hour in a week to spend that time in front of a graveyard or on the cremation place. Are you ready?”

” What?” – the patient became astonished and told: ” I have come to you from getting relief by some medication, but you don’t give any medicine, rather you are advising me to will. I have no time to spare, Sir!

After a little pause, he told: ” Alright. I must walk as you advice me. But I couldn’t understand why you are advising me to spend some hours before the grave.

The Doctor explains the significance of his words. ” Yes, I insist you to spend some time before the grave because you’re to think about the man who is lying on the ground under the tomb for ever. “

” Why ” – asked the patient in the story” the Doctor and the patient: on depression.
