Maureen Waititu was in a really bad place last year after her split from the father of her two sons, Frankie Kiarie. 8 months since she called it off with the gym instructor, the YouTube TV personality is juggling single motherhood, work life and her mental stability.
The break-up has been so tough on her that she had to undergone the various stages of grief and loss.
“You will have denial, anger, crazy, negotiation and acceptance and go back and forth until the process finishes” she earlier on disclosed.
But the beautiful mother of two isn’t a shrinking violet and decided to fight the various mental challenges she was going through by visiting psychiatric help which is bearing good fruits.
Speaking of anti-depressant pills, Maureen shared:
“When you are really sad, it brings you to normal. The other one helps me sleep and it wears off.”
A woman who wears many hats, having two boys on one hand and sourcing for a living on the other, the balance at times topples off.
“I never rest being a single mum of two boys and I work really hard and barely get time for myself and I need structure. Whenever I am free, I feel guilty and I need to learn how to slow down,” she said.
But things seem to be looking up for Maureen as her fight against her mental issues gains steam, with the influencer expressing her gratitude for her doctor.
“I was in such a bad state and Dr. Njuguna (the psychiatrist) wanted to admit me but I told him I have kids to take care of. He saved my life.”
