Nigerian Actress Charity Eke popularly known as Cha Cha Eke has revealed how she used to dislike her mother and wished her dead while growing up.
In a post shared on her Instagram page, the mum of five said she loved her mother intensely when she was much younger but began to develop deep hatred for her mother and even wished her dead as she grew older.
She disclosed that the hatred grew worse after some men of God told her the mum was after her life. She said she got to know better when she she came to understand her mental challenges and her dysfunctional thought pattern.
Sharing a video of herself and her mum, she wrote:
‘’This is a video of me and my biological Mom. I loved her intensely when I was younger. She was, and still is my best friend. However, as I got older, I began to dislike and develop deep hatred for her. I had nightmares and hallucinations that supported my euphoria. Sadly, many men of God told me after several manic episodes that she was after my life. And so i went about wishing her death and spewing despicable things about her.
“Looking back now at my mental health challenges and journey, it’s laughable to know that those dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs of mine were a disorder; a chemical reaction in the brain waves that switches your “most favourite” to “your least favourite”.
“Dear reader, many people have been emotionally torn apart from their loved ones due to underlying mental conditions. They’d come up with all sorts of negative stories to back up their disillusioned claims. Thankfully, there are pills for those weird inexplicable feelings. Did you know?
“Today is my mother’s birthday and I’m grateful to have realized it was all a sickness in my head while she’s still alive. I love you deeply Mommy. You’re a blessed Woman. 9 Grandchildren and still counting
Mental illness or not, Momma raised a Queen”. (www.naija247news.com).
