Nelius Mukami, the wife of former nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura has opened up about depression. She candidly narrated this on her social media saying that living with depression costs her a lot. She stated that living with anxiety and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the hardest experiences she has faced in life.
“It has taken a lot from me and it continues taking. It just takes so much effort to avoid it and it still finds me even i my happiest of days and in my solitude,”said Mukami. She also said that she sometimes finds it difficult to wake up in the morning for her routines.
Mukami said nobody seems to understand how it drains her just to get out of bed. She said depression has robbed her memories, experiences and people. “I find myself being broke and unworthy,” she claimed. She added that she has lost herself and she sometimes stare at the mirror and cannot recognize herself.
In a past interview with World Is, she revealed that she faced a rough time after losing two-thirds of her triplets. She disclosed that she has been fighting depression since April 2018 after being discharged from the hospital. She said her mental health journey has been a roller coaster and many find it hard to understand her.
Mukami lamented that her condition is not a state of mind that can just be done away with without proper motivation. She said she is however grateful for the days she lives. “I know deep down I am not broken and I am worthy. I know there is till so much for me to conquer,” she said. She regretted that she took a lot of time grieving the woman she was and forgot the woman she was becoming. “I am a work in progress,” said Mukami.
