Monalisa Stephen, a Nollywood actress and body positivity campaigner who appeared depressed a few days ago, has revealed that she has battled diabetes since she was a youngster.
The actress, who recently admitted to having suicide thoughts, claims she is not as miserable as many people believe.
The TV personality, who previously revealed she had Tinnitus on her Instagram page, added that she is gradually recovering and that she has been fighting with trolls who have left several harsh comments on her social media accounts.
Ms Stephen wrote, “While opening up about her problems, I wrote:
”Over the week there have been wrong misconceptions/Talks and I would have ignored but I owe it to my family and friends and women who actually look up to me to tell “MY TRUTH.
What happened to me have got nothing to do with “BODY POSITIVITY“ it’s Farrr from it .
Have had my own share of the struggle/suffering( I came from Nothing) so I work really hard to get here and I will work harder. Over the years I have grown a thick Skin. When trolls come for me sometimes I am thinking of my next meal or my next content . Sometimes I am struggling with how not to go completely blind due to complications from Diabetes which I had since I was 10 years old. Then some other stuff and TInnitus .(you don’t want to have that trust me )But I understand people just wanna troll you without, not thinking what you may be going thru. I was suicidal due to this ugly incident but I am not Depressed.
I was just unfortunate to meet Evil and I am glad that I am healing.”
It would be recalled that the plus-sized model had hinted in her message that she was “tired of being betrayed because she trusts too much”.
She also said she was prepared to “quit.” Many people were concerned when they received her message, and Monalisa’s management issued a statement a few hours later assuring that she was fine.
