“Finding the strength to wake up in the morning and be functional is difficult and it takes everything in me just to drag myself out of bed,” she stated.

Robbed of joy

The beauty further said that she could hardly recognise herself as the condition robs her of experiences, memories and people.

“I try not to allow it overcome me but it still finds a way in. I find myself feeling broken and unworthy,” Mukami wrote.

Mukami admitted that depression had hindered her from pursuing her dreams, making her believe she was not good enough.

“My mental health journey has been a huge rollercoaster and very hard to explain because not many will understand,” she wrote.

Not giving up

However, Mukami asserted that she was not giving up the fight.

“I will not let depression take my joy away. Every day I will strive to focus on who I am and who I want to be. I will strive to shed off the weight of depression,” she concluded.

Losing two children

Mukami, who delivered triplets in 2018 but lost two previously, admitted that she fears getting more children.

“I remember seeing the first, who was a girl, as doctors tried to resuscitate and they told me she was gone.

I saw my boy (who died after three months) with injections, bruises and I felt like I did not want to bring another child into this world to go through that,” she said.
