Judith Babirye’s full post
I want to share something very personal concerning August, a determinant if I live or die! I have suffered & endured Gender-Based Violence! Yes, even as a celebrity, a female politician, a role model, a mother and a public speaker. I have hidden my tears and pain under my dimples and smile, desiring to forget my past. But I cannot ignore the severe effects on my mental health anymore. Daily, I struggle with depression, anxiety, constant panic attacks, fear and nightmares.
I have been there and yes, ‘am on the road to recovery, its still a long way. Thanks to God Almighty, the Doctors, family and you my friends, there is hope. I choose to speak out!! I can’t keep quiet especially well knowing that even right now there is a woman on the brink of losing her life due to Gender Based Violence. No woman should go through what I went through or any form of violence.
I stand with you, I see you, support, love and seek God to Protect you. I urge the community to open their eyes to this reality, open their arms and be kind to survivors of Gender Based Violence. Become the arms of love we all need #armsoflove❤️
