I was called Anorexic and Snobbish” – Betty Irabor recounts her experience while battling depression

Betty Irabor, Nigerian Publisher/Author, has spoken up about her 8 years battle with depression and the things she passed through.

The media personality took to her twitter account to share her experience. She stated that she was hounded and bullied until she was ashamed to even leave her house.

She added that she was labelled “Anorexic” and “Snobbish” because she could hardly socialize because of her predicament.

According to her, she battled depression for 8 years but has been out of that dark hole for 5 years now.

She wrote,

“When I was battling depression & lost weight, many thought I was on a death diet & hounded me till I was ashamed to go out. A News Daily called me Anorexic. I got labelled “Snobbish” cos I lost every ability to socialize….Hmm Things are never what they seem. Let’s be guided.

My battle with depression lasted 8 years. I have been out of that dark hole for some 5 years now & I wrote a book on my experience. I am fantastic thanks to my family especially hubby, God & my therapists. There’s a lot of self effort required on the journey to recovery.”

She also encouraged a “kindness culture” in her recent post on Instagram. Possibly related to the late Chadwick Boseman, who was bullied whilst he was sick with Cancer.

She wrote,

“CAN WE NORMALIZE KINDNESS ALREADY?
WE DONT NEED TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE IS GOING THROUGH ANYTHING TO BE KIND TO THEM!
Let’s create a culture of kindness.❤”
