“I can be talking to you now and the next minute, I am lost in thoughts. And my husband did not notice.” A mother of two, Jennifer started suffering depression when she lost her son.
“Anytime I go to pick his sister from school and I come across my son’s classmate, they will ask me, ‘where is Akin, how is he?”
“I went to see a doctor. And he told me it was depression and anxiety. Depression is not good because of the pain you will go through, I don’t want anybody to go through that pain,” Jennifer said.
