Anne Singer battles with depression

Anne Singer recently opened up about her battles with depression that led her to cutting her wrist with a blade in an attempt to numb the emotional pain she has been feeling. We are really proud of the songstress for coming out and talking about such an issue that is shunned upon within the Namibian society.

In a lengthy Facebook post Anne Singer detailed how she cut herself and says she did it because she wanted to hurt herself. “Two weeks ago I suffered an episode of severe depression. I literally took a blade and started to cut my wrist. It felt like the only thing that would help relieve my pain. It felt right and I was okay with taking pictures when I cut myself, I was justifying myself, burning everything around me so I could save everyone around me, but me,” she shared to her social media followers.

She emphasised that she shared her story with the public to create awareness about mental health and wants more people to take care of their mental health. “I’m not exposing myself and I’m not looking for sympathy. I’m trying to create awareness and show that no one is immune to depression, absolutely no one. Mental illness and health, along with depression, are real and we need to start comprehending the significance of dealing with it,” said Anne Singer.

We send nothing but love and positive vibes to Anne Singer and hope many more people get the necessary help to fight depression and mental health issues.
