Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke has opened up about her past struggles with deep-rooted hatred towards her mother.
In a post shared on her Instagram page on the occasion of her mother’s birthday, Chacha Eke revealed that she disliked her mum and wished her dead while growing up.
The actress attributed her intense animosity towards her mother to a mental disorder that caused a drastic shift in her feelings, turning her favorite person into her least favorite.
She stated that her negative emotions towards her mother were worsen by false revelations from self-proclaimed men of God, who claimed that her mother posed a threat to her life.
The mother of five, however, expressed gratitude for gaining awareness that her intense hatred stemmed from her mental health condition while her mother was still alive.
Chacha Eke encouraged those facing similar challenges with mental disorders to seek medical assistance, emphasizing the importance of professional help in managing such conditions.
Sharing a heartfelt video of herself and her mother, she wrote: said, ”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 a 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 realised 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😍”
