Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has dropped an emotional farewell note as she battles depression.
The former Ghana HIV/AIDS ambassador has asked the world to be kind to her children when she is no mor.
In a Facebook post, she talked about how she’s always been crying when alone despite behaving in public as if she is strong.
She talked about how she was admitted to psychiatric hospital in Germany in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 all because of depression.
According to Joyce Dzidzor after 17 years of living with HIV, this year has been the most depressing because she feels closer to her grave.
She wrote the following on her Facebook page;
In September 2007 when I was diagnosed, tears never departed from me…. i consoled my mother to stop crying and told her i wasn’t bothered about my status…..but when everyone is sleeping deep at night, I’d sneak out to cry out loud….
And when i started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk…… i maintained a smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me.
I have been admitted in the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in psychiatric hospital for major depression. Due to my constant admission, My son Prince was taken away from me.
But now I’m weak……Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes God bless you all
