Anita Nderu has come out to reveal that she contemplated taking her own life when she was depressed last year. The screen queen disclosed this information on her Instagram page after persistently being inundated with the question of how she had overcome the nasty illness.
The 29-year-old wrote a long message that I have truncated:
“Every time I share my story about going through depression all of last year I get DM’s asking how did you get over it?
I am very misunderstood, I came to realise that, those who care to get to know me, know I am not what they perceived…”
“The people who caused all this, still sleep soundly at night, I don’t get how but they do. To each their demons right?
Above all even the one night I cried so much I contemplated killing myself, guys I wanted to blow my brains out, I remember only @dunn_can thought I wasn’t okay that night when he saw me, I asked myself, are they worth it? No. God has a plan, he always does just hang in there boo.”
She divulged that she had made a conscious choice to keep living with a positive attitude and that she would never stop being a nice person.
Anita shocked many last month when she dropped the bombshell that she had suffered from depression for 5 months last year.
Justin Bieber, the popular teen sensation who girls swoon over has recently been diagnosed with depression. One of the ways that he is dealing with it is by seeing a therapist and seeking counsel from Hillwood pastor, Carl Lentz.
Depression is a mental health disorder characterised by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life.
These may include changes in sleep, appetite, energy level, concentration, daily behaviour or self-esteem. Depression can also be associated with thoughts of suicide.
