If the words of an unstable weed addict like Afia Schwarzenegger can drive you to the brink then you have to evaluate the seriousness you give to the utterances of others.
Some people blow hot air just for the sake of blowing and Afia is one of those.
Former HIV/AIDS ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah recently threatened to kill herself and her three children and even though she later claimed it was a prank, she has now been speaking out on it again.
According to her she was really serious and would have killed herself if a Zylofon Fm worker had not called her to calm her.
“I actually meant to go to the village, kill myself and kill my children too… I would never do that for attention. That was how I felt that day when I woke up. I woke up and just wanted to end it all.”
According to her she has been suffering from depression for years, depression that was first triggered by loudmouthed Afia Schwarzenegger.
“The depression had been there for so long but I didn’t even know. I was diagnosed when I was in Germany. I think the person who brought out the depression in me was Afia Schwarzenegger.
“At that time I was pregnant and I was in Germany and I wrote a letter to President Mahama. She picked up the news, called me, interviewed me and insulted me and called me a liar and a thief…I cried because if you are calling me a thief; for someone like me who has sacrificed her life for this nation educating people and I was being paid just GH¢800…if with all these things somebody can just pick a phone and call me a thief and a liar…I cried. Before I realised I was in the hospital. I don’t even know how I ended up there.” she told GraphicOnline.
Dzidzor added: “The mistake I made was accepting that role of an HIV/AIDs Ambassador. I regret. The only thing that makes me happy is the fact that I was able to save lives during my term. But I regret in the sense that I put my children at risk, I put my entire family at risk. I was thinking that educating people will help them understand and accept people living with HIV. I didn’t know that the stigma was going to bounce back to me.”
