Njeri Gachomba, popularly known as Njambi for her role in the Real House helps of Kawangware, has opened up on her battle with depression. Speaking via her social media platform, YouTube channel, Njambi stated that it has been a struggle which she hopes to overcome.
‘MY PEOPLE, PLEASE TAKE ME SLOWLY. YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING ME WHY I HAVE NOT BEEN POSTING. IF I STOPPED MAKING YOUTUBE CONTENT, AND I JUST WANT TO SAY I’M SO SORRY TO YOU, MY FANS.
I TOLD YOU ALL THAT I HAVE HAD DEPRESSION, SO I HAVE BEEN BATTLING THAT AND AT THE SAME TIME WORKING THROUGH MY MENTAL ILLNESS, AND YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ARE DEPRESSED, YOU HAVE NO MOTIVATION TO DO ANYTHING.
I AM DEMORALIZED, I FEEL I HAVE NO SUPPORT, I HAVE NO PSYCH,” STATED NJAMBI.
The actress explained that despite having shot several videos for her YouTube channel, she often lacks the strength and drive to edit and post them, most of the time opting to do away with the footage.
Njambi, a mother of two, has in the past talked of battling depression after she lost a pregnancy, something that left her deeply traumatized after looking forward to the birth of her child.
