Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke has spilled on how her mental health challenge affected her relationship with her mother.
While celebrating her mother’s birthday today, Chacha reflected on how she had disdain and hatred for her mother as she got older.
She revealed that she had nightmares and hallucinations that supported her euphoria and sadly many men of God told her after several man!c episodes that her mother was after her life.
And so, she went about wishing her mother death, until she discovered that she had dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs that switches her most favorite to her least favorite.
Chacha Eke’s mental struggle with her mother
“This is a video of me and my biological Mom. I loved her intensely when I was younger. She was, and still is my best friend. However, as I got older, I began to dislike and develop a deep hatred for her. I had nightmares and hallucinations that supported my euphoria. Sadly, many men of God told me after several man!c episodes that she was after my life. And so I went about wishing her death and spewing despicable things about her.
Looking back now at my mental health challenges and journey, it’s laughable to know that those dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs of mine were a disorder, a chemical reaction in the brain waves that switches your “most favorite” to “your least favorite”.
Dear reader, many people have been emotionally torn apart from their loved ones due to underlying mental conditions. They’d come up with all sorts of negative stories to back up their disillusioned claims. Thankfully, there are pills for those weird inexplicable feelings. Did you know?
Today is my mother’s birthday and I’m grateful to have realized it was all a sickness in my head while she’s still alive. I love you deeply Mommy. You’re a blessed woman. 9 Grandchildren and still counting.
Mental illness or not, Momma raised a Queen”.
Chacha Eke spills on how she got her mental health
Last year, Chacha Eke opened up about her mental health journey.
The mother of four, who has been a proud advocate of mental health following her diagnosis with bipolar disorder, has made a new revelation about her personal life.
Chacha revealed that she got her ‘craziness’ from her mother and would likely pass it on to her daughter.
The 35-year-old also revealed that she lost a baby 18 years ago. According to her, the baby died, and she is still in pain. Despite it being over a decade, she never forgets.
“I am cr@zy, I got it from my mama. My mama was a cr@zy woman, her mama was cr@zy. My daughter will probably grow up and be a cr@zy little lady.
