“I had a breakdown, I kept taking ginger and garlic every day” – Tacha
Natacha Akide, has revealed that she had a breakdown during the lockdown declared at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tacha made this known in a video shared on her YouTube channel during the week.
In her words ;
“I had a breakdown and I had to ask myself― ‘what is the world turning to? What have I learnt’? Back in school, we were taught to always learn moral lessons from stories. The moral lesson I learnt from the COVID-19 lockdown was to (always) spread love. I had to speak to a life coach who told me I needed to take a break, even if it was for three days. It was so bad that I would just lay on my bed, cover myself with clothes and be shaking because I was sad. I did not enjoy that period. I did not enjoy seeing the bad news (all around). I kept taking ginger and garlic every day.”
