Gospel singer Kevin Bahati’s Baby Mama Yvette Obura has for the first time opened up on her struggle with depression.
I prayed and asked God not to wake me up – Bahati’s baby mama opens up on battling depression
The last few days have been tough!
In a long post on her Instagram page, Ms Obura said the last few days have been so tough on her, but she is grateful she was getting out of it.
She went on to say that during the time, she prayed to God to take her life because her whole world was broken into pieces.
According to Yvette, she has been battling anxiety, mental health and depression at the same time since 2015, and it was even worse when it was her daughter Mueni trying to comfort her.
In the post she also thanked a few of her friends who noticed that she was not okay and came to check on her.
Here’s her post
“Today I'm very grateful for a lot of things. The last few days have been so tough on me, battling anxiety, mental health and depression at the same time (since 2015), this being the first time I'm talking about it. The whole world shattered right on my face, I prayed and asked God not to wake me up the next day (happened every day), people used to call me and I didn't even have the strength to pick up calls. A few people realized I was so silent and took the time to check up on me. @pepee_64 @jacquekimandi@smiliosis1 @betty_colette, I appreciate y'all .. @aliciahoburaliah I know how much you tried communicating but I couldn't even talk.
It was a rough time, it still is but I'm glad I'm not where I was 3weeks ago.
Thank God for my mum who' always made sure I'm kicking it every day, it broke me when I broke down and my baby was the one comforting me, wiping my tears. I was so broken I had to pick myself up and asked God to give me strength. I'm not ashamed about my situation, at the end of the day IT'S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY. And I know of so many people who gave up the fight but I'm still fighting.”
