With stress hitting her from all angles, the lady found solace in alcohol; and that is when her worst nightmare came to life.

I went through depression. and depression can take you to alcohol. Some other people will just hide in the Christian faith. I embraced alcoholism at some point but luckily I had a strong family and friends who noticed what was happening to me,”

Self esteem issues

With alcohol deep in her system, the lady says she let herself go hence the massive weight gain; that led to yet another problem of body insecurities. She went on to say,

When I was down there, I was trying to lose weight. When I lost myself, I started losing self-esteem. You’re getting broke because you’re mismanaging your finances. I knew I could get out, but I didn’t know how.

But through it all, she managed to get back on her feet and is currently making headlines through new TV series.
