Chacha Eke, a Nollywood actress, has revealed how her mental health issues impacted her relationship with her mother.
Chacha reflected on how she came to dislike and despise her mother as she grew older while celebrating her mother’s birthday today.
She admitted to having dreams and hallucinations that accompanied her euphoria, and regrettably, many men of God warned her after multiple man!c experiences that her mother was after her life.
So she went around wishing her mother’s death until she learned that she had dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs that caused her favorite to become her least favorite.
Chacha Eke’s mental struggle with her mother
“This is a video of me and my biological Mom. I loved her intensely when I was younger. She was, and still is my best friend. However, as I got older, I began to dislike and develop a deep hatred for her. I had nightmares and hallucinations that supported my euphoria. Sadly, many men of God told me after several man!c episodes that she was after my life. And so I went about wishing her death and spewing despicable things about her.
Looking back now at my mental health challenges and journey, it’s laughable to know that those dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs of mine were a disorder, a chemical reaction in the brain waves that switches your “most favorite” to “your least favorite”.
Dear reader, many people have been emotionally torn apart from their loved ones due to underlying mental conditions. They’d come up with all sorts of negative stories to back up their disillusioned claims. Thankfully, there are pills for those weird inexplicable feelings. Did you know?
Today is my mother’s birthday and I’m grateful to have realized it was all a sickness in my head while she’s still alive. I love you deeply Mommy. You’re a blessed woman. 9 Grandchildren and still counting.
Mental illness or not, Momma raised a Queen”.
