New VLog: Dealing with Depression

New VLog: Dealing with Depression

I have agonized about releasing this particular VLog because it takes me back to a really dark place in my life. But I realize that one of the aims of this VLog is sincerity.

A lot of people look at me today and think ‘ohhhh….Glory is such a bubbly person’…they wouldn’t believe that almost 8 years ago now, I actually was on the verge of ending my life. But that’s the thing about depression, it doesn’t come with a badge. One of the reasons why I am sharing this video is because I know there are many people going through the same emotions I went through on that day and hope by sharing my own experience, they too can feel a little empowered to seek the help they need.

If you are or know someone who maybe experiencing some of the symptoms (or related symptoms) described in this video please contact Dr. Gbonju Abiri, a senior resident at the Yaba Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Lagos, Nigeria, on +234 8033623415

    I have been through this. I broke down in the middle of the road at night crying…right in the middle of winter in several inches of snow…like an idiot lol. I prayed to sleep and not wake up in the morning. Each morning I awoke, I’d say “oh na, why did u wake up?!!!!” lmao. Crazy times! I found it difficult to talk to anyone because everyone would say “Barbara, you’re a tough chick” and I’d think “I’m telling this one something & he/she is saying his/her own!!!” lol….I saw a shrink who really did not help. So I just started looking closely at my life and what I wanted changed.I looked for what made me happy and stuck to doing that. and that’s how I got over depression….one thing at a time. It was a struggle though and I’m still not where I’d like to be but I sure as hell am not where I was. I am happy now and know what keeps that happiness alive. Mehn…
