Nigerian media personality, Betty Irabor has revealed that while battling emotional issues and depression, people shamed her for losing weight and even called her ‘anorexic’.
The 63-year-old publisher and founder of Genevieve magazine urged the public to always consider that things are never really what they seem.
She wrote; ”While I was battling depression and lost weight, many thought I was on a death diet & hounded me till I was ashamed to go out.
”A news daily called me anorexic. I got labelled ”snobbish” because I lost the ability to socialise… Hmmm, things are not always how they seem. Let’s be guided”.
My battle with depression lasted 8 years. I have been out of that dark hole for some 5 years now & I wrote a book on my experience. I am fantastic thanks to my family especially hubby, God & my therapists. There’s a lot of self effort required on the journey to recovery. ❤
