I have agonized about releasing this particular Vlog because it takes me back to a really dark place in my life. But I realize that one of the aims of this Vlog is sincerity.
A lot of people look at me today and think ‘ohhhh….Glory is such a bubbly person’…they wouldn’t believe that almost 8 years ago now, I actually was on the verge of ending my life. But that’s the thing about depression, it doesn’t come with a badge. One of the reasons why I am sharing this video is because I know there are many people going through the same emotions I went through on that day and hope by sharing my own experience, they too can feel a little empowered to seek the help they need.
If you are or know someone who maybe experiencing some of the symptoms (or related symptoms) described in this video please contact Dr. Gbonju Abiri, a senior resident at the Yaba Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Lagos, Nigeria, on +234 8033623415
