I know I haven’t been here in  a long , long, while and for most of you who might have been following my Instagram, then you’d know that I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and schizophrenia, a little over three months ago.The journey has been a tough one no lie, especially when I found out that the hyperthyroidism was a result of misdiagnosis. Can you believe it ?

With all that being said, I decided to just take a break from everything ( school, blogging and You Tube )for a while and try and just introspect and try to find myself. I have learnt the virtue of gratitude & patience through my journey and I am mostly thankful for all my family and friends for showing me support and love when I was low and when I had so many questions as to why this happened to me .

My strength has mostly come from God, and to you as my readers for always sending me love and support through your comments, messages and posts.

As I sit down and write this, my mind is still in recovery mode, so I’m very proud of myself for being able to push myself and try and do the little things that I’ve always loved to do. I want to continue spreading good vibes through my creation of content be it on my blog or on my You Tube channel.

As hard as dealing with schizophrenia has been, I want to continue walking positively in my journey hoping to create awareness about this condition because mental health is shunned in Kenya.

One great thing that has helped me through this journey has been experiencing gratitude because feeling sorry for myself would not help the situation.

Fighting schizophrenia, has taught me how to be mentally strong in order to stay put and it has taken me  learning to control my mind , my thoughts and my behaviours .

I can’t wait to be fully back and keep creating content but for now , I’m done penning my thoughts down and I’ll see you soon!


Sincerely, Didi
