There is no beating around the bush – lawyer and YouTuber Maureen Waititu has beaten depression and is off medication, a year after sinking into an ensnaring dark web of life draining sadness.

Bravely opening up about her battle with depression, while explaining the peaks and troughs that come with the mental health condition, Maureen disclosed that she seriously considered suicide, twice.

“See that smile?” posed the mother of two as she drew attention to a photo she posted to her over 339,000 Instagram followers where she detailed in the caption what helped her get through it.

“That smile was covering severe sadness and depression, in fact, the following day I attempted suicide for the second and last time ever! One year later, I've beat depression, got off depression medication, fought several silent battles and won, fought off cyber bullying and saw my life change right in front of my eyes as I achieved things I never even imagined would be possible.”She explained, “A lot of people ask me how I did it but mostly I have no answer as this is a very personal journey. However, looking back to this period, I remember I was driving back from Murang'a and I heard my baby Kai who was only a year few months old say 'mama' for the first time. Lexi on the other hand was days to turning 4 years old - this child is an angel I tell you. He saved my life over and over again and the thought of leaving my precious boys allowed me to snap out of my suicidal state- and fight for my two boys and myself even though I felt like my world was coming to an end, weh! Never again.”

The beautiful lady from Kikuyu land, then revealed that seeking treatment actually saved her life.“It wasn't easy, some days were dark, some hopeful. I took the healing journey extremely seriously and without shame, I took my medication and saw my psychiatrist religiously and without fail. But guess what? My faith and trust in God, my determination to heal, self-education, a good support system and keeping an open mind accelerated my healing. I never thought that I'd say this but I have seen the other side of healing and it's beautiful!” the lady stated in her Instagram post.
