The Kapil Sharma Show actor Sumona Chakravarti has posted a note on social media where she shared how the lockdown has taken a toll on her emotionally. The actor also opened up about being jobless and suffering from endometriosis since 2011.

In a long note on Instagram, Sumona wrote about working out at home and feeling guilty about her privileges. “Did a proper workout at home after ages. Some days I feel guilty because boredom is a privilege. I may be unemployed & yet am able to feed my family & myself. That is privilege. Sometimes I feel guilty. Specially when am feeling low due to pms’in. The mood swings play havoc emotionally.”

Sumona, a popular face on Indian television, also opened up about her Endometriosis diagnosis as she added, “Something ive never shared before. I have been battling endometriosis since 2011. Been in stage IV for many years now. A good eating habit, exercise & most importantly no stress is key to my well being. The lockdown has been emotionally hard for me.”

With her post, Sumona Chakravarti intended to let people understand that the life of people in showbiz is not always about glitz and glamour. “Thought ill share my feelings for whoever is reading this to understand that all that glitters is not gold. We are all struggling with something or the other in our lives. We all have our own battles to fight,” the 32-year-old actor shared.

The Bade Achhe Lagte Hain actor stepped out of her comfort zone to pen her feelings, but she did so to inspire people. Concluding her post on a positive note, Sumona added, “We’re surrounded by loss, pain, grief, stress, hatred. But all you need is LOVE, COMPASSION & KINDNESS. 💗💗💗 N then we’ll sail through this storm as well.”

What is Endometriosis?

Mayo Clinic’s website describes endometriosis as “an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs.”
