For years that I’ve known and been with you as a Uni roommate, as friends for 11 good years, I’ve never publicly defended your actions, but it’s time people know beyond the controversies surrounding you, you’re a beautiful, kind prayerful introvert.
I remember the mornings you’d wake up early, bath, and listen to Otabil’s teachings on YouTube, followed by reading his books and prayer. Your discipline raised the standard for me because you were just too organized; you meticulously planned your day, even helping others. Sadly, your admirable qualities have been overshadowed by public focus on your struggles.
Mental health is a reality, and it’s unfortunate that our society tends to judge those experiencing it. Some actions may seem unrealistic, but the struggle is real. The condition is more severe than perceived; one can forget oneself, act out, then return to sobriety with regret. I urge everyone to watch “When Colors Fade.” Abena, in her sober state, is a kind and a very loving innocent individual facing challenges.
Despite her efforts, she faces judgment from those who question her struggle. She gets worried for the things she’s going through yet again we’ve people who will say” are you the only bipolar patient in Ghana? Abena, in due time, you’ll find healing. Hold on, endure; your breakthrough is near. I become exhausted and emotional at times when I see all the potentials in you yet all those potentials have been reduced to ridiculing by the public because of your condition.
I’ve witnessed your earnest attempts at improvement through therapy, medication, and prayers. Despite public perceptions, God is the ultimate healer. No matter how deliberate you see their actions to be, the condition is real and deadlier than we perceive. The condition is a killer of dreams, joy, life etc. I happened to live with one but he’s of loving memory. When his starts, the only thing is to insult nothing else. He insults everyone living in the community including his biological parents “.
This person doesn’t do drugs! When he even drinks he sleeps but when he wakes up y’all in Trouble. The condition is differ from each patient.
