Actress and Youtuber Brenda Jons has revealed that she’s currently fighting depression.
On Instagram, Jons confessed that she has been struggling with alcohol and stress-eating lately following her mental health struggles.
“Lately, a lot has been happening and I’ve been very emotional about a lot of things. My mental health has been challenged, I’ve found myself doing things I never thought I’d do,” she said.
“I’ve found myself drinking too much, overeating, not eating at all, crying too much, all extremes on feelings and emotions. “
Jons, famed for her ‘Plesdent Kingston’ clips, said that even though she has been wearing a smiley face on the outside, she has had suicidal thoughts several times.
She urged anyone who is in the same position to come out and seek help before it’s too late.
“I’ve been suicidal and felt like I just want to stop the noise from the world in my life. I look happy, I look okay but deep down I’m breaking and going nuts. I just want genuine freedom and rest,” she said in the post.
“Why I’m i sharing this? Not for pity or consolation, no. I know it will remind someone that it’s okay not to be okay and it’s okay to take a break from the world and focus on yourself. So I’m taking a healthy break from everything, I just need to stay quiet and listen to myself and heal. I don’t know how but I know that I have genuine people in my life and I am sure things will work out for me.”
