Nigerian OAP and author, Toke Makinwa, recently underwent surgery, shared the story of her struggles with depression.
The ‘On Becoming’ author whom we all love for her exquisite fashion style says she is thankful to God as she celebrates her rebirth. Taking to Instagram, the vlogger shared a lengthy post and video.
What she said about the surgery
“I started to feel unworthy and it was a strange feeling I had a very important procedure and I didn’t tell anyone simply because a part of me wanted out from it. (Can you believe the cheek), last week I went into surgery and as the doctors did their thing, Jesus did his.
How it started
“The devil targeted my mind. He tried to make me lose my mind!!!! Somehow strong TM started to live in a lot fear and doubt and the fear quickly turned to depression. I could sell out my bags or kill it at a stage play or smash another milestone in my career and be so happy today and wake up sad the next. The devil started planting words of uncertainty in my heart and I started to drift.
Why Toke shared her story
“It’s hard because we’ve become a people who shame others for opening up and who ridicule others to hide our own insecurities but I had to share this because just because you think TM is strong and untouchable which she probably is, I let the devil in without knowing it.
