This question has been in my mind since the last few months: Do every human being has a mental condition or a variation from being normal?

The answer seems to be “yes” in this day and age.

I started analyzing my family members, relatives, friends, coworkers and parents of my little patients. I am not a psychologist or psychiatrist ! But, every one including me seems to have a mental diagnosis: Hyper activity, obsessive compulsive disorder, paranoia, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and the list goes on. Recently The First Lady Michelle Obama announced publicly that she has been dealing with depression.

These mental and behavior changes started probably several months ago, most probably with COVID19. People started staying home or isolate from others due to fear or of breathing in the virus. Changes in life situations, not having the resources available readily that one is used to; not able to travel, not able to visit church or temple, or visit Ashram in my case.
