A popular actress, Joyce Mensah has taken to social media to reveal her daily struggle after she was diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

The actress via her Facebook page revealed how she has suffered major depression countlessly and had to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital in Hamburg following her diagnosis of the virus.

She added that even though she tries to educated people on the virus, she sometimes cry in silence, maintaining that most people with HIV derive some strength from her.

She also begged  the general public to be kind to her children whenever  she ceased living.

Read her post below;

“In September 2007 when I was diagnosed, tears never departed from me…. i consoled my mother to stop crying and told her i wasn’t bothered about my status…..but when everyone is sleeping deep at night, I’d sneak out to cry out loud….

And when i started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk…… i maintained a smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me.

I have been admitted in the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in psychiatric hospital for major depression. Due to my constant admission, My son Prince was taken away from me.

But now I’m weak……Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes God bless you all.

What is your take on things like this?
