Former Beauty Queen and Flavour’s baby mama “Anna Banner” opens up on being suicidal.
Banner opened up in a post she shared on her Instagram feed; and she quotes “For almost 6 years now, i have had sad birthday experiences…it was pretty frustrating but i was advised to always wear a smile to cover up the pain and sadness.
We don’t have it all figured out. I was suicidal at some point in my life, i never knew depression was real until i experienced it. It wasn’t pretty at all. I was ashamed of my body, some decisions i made, i lost my self confidence, i literally lost myself, i screamed silently for help but no one but God could hear me!
And yes we post beautiful pictures just to feel good sometimes. We post family perfect pictures to but we struggle to sleep at night! Behind the social media doors…I had a beautiful baby girl at 20 (unmarried, young and a school drop out) and 5 years later, i am a graduate. I thought about quitting school so many times….trust me i didn’t care anymore, it was too much for me to handle. mentally i was exhausted, at some point my daughter couldn’t recognise me, she called her GRANDMA MUMMY INSTEAD, i WAS SHATTERED.
