I suffered Emotional and Domestic Violence in my 2 years of Marraige – Popular Blogger Misspetite opens up (Photo)
The 2-year old marriage of popular blogger Emeh Achanga of Misspetite has crashed and she’s opened up on the many instances of abuse that thrived in her marriage.
In a recent interview, the mother of one gave details on how her 2-year old marriage eventually crashed in the early part of 2017. According to Emeh, she endured many instances of infidelity, emotional and psychological trauma that aided the post-partum depression which was already battling with which led to her almost taking her own life.
In her words; ”post partum depression is something most Nigerians are oblivious too .
It’s sad because about 60 percent of women go through post partum depression and instead of partners to be supportive,most men withdraw ,get lovers or sidechicks.
I suffered depression because I grew up to be very independent,didn’t take much time i found myself pregnant .
My blog which was my life ,suddenly became less of a priority .I could not connect with my readers any more and instead of reaching out ,I recoiled into my shell.
I Watched my rankings slip and then my partner who was supposed to be supportive ,didn’t notice I was slipping into depression .Here I was with a baby who depended on me for everything and because my work is something I can do from home …my partner was always out at work and I now had to combine motherhood and blogging which is a full time 18 hour job’.
She continued to say, ‘so as my rankings plumetted because I could not keep up,I hated myself,my spouse and everyone .Cut off from family ,friends and attempted to kill myself. And guess what ,when I spoke to my spouse about my suicidal thoughts ,he laughed. The only thing which kept me going was my daughter .I felt I owed it to her to stay alive. It is a struggle and everyday is still a battle with depression. Postnatal depression is real and I am going to raise alot of awareness about it. Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen recently revealed she suffers from it and takes treatment till date.”
