May Yul Edochie revealed that she went into depression after the shocking news of her husband taking a second wife.
Recall that in April this year, Yul shocked many Nigerians when he announced on social media that he had picked Judy as a second wife and that they have even welcomed a son together (Read Here).
This came as a surprise to many Nigerians who saw his marriage to May as one that embodies a Monogamous union. Yul and May have been married for over 17 years and have four children.
In a live session she had on her Facebook page today, May stated that it hasn’t been easy since her husband took the decision to venture into polygamy.
May disclosed that she doesn’t wish this on any of her enemy, if she has one. Rather than dwell on what has happened, she said she has decided to pick up the pieces of a beautiful world.
According to her, depression is real and there are different stages to it. She also responded to people who say she is cashing out via the crisis in her marriage.
In her words:
”I saw a few comments of some people saying ‘May is using this to cash out” and I am like okay…It’s fine. I don’t wish this upon my enemy if at all I have any. I don’t think I have enemies but if at all I have any, I don’t wish this upon them.
Depression is real and there are different stages of depression. For me, rather than dwell in depression. I decided to pick up the pieces of a beautiful world that I had. A very beautiful world.
An amazing world that suddenly shattered, that suddenly crashed. I decided to pick up the pieces and try to move on, rather than dwell in depression. It has not been easy.”
The mum of four said she is happy that she looks strong and happy but that it is the love and support from people that have kept her going.
May added that she had to put herself together because of her kids s she needs to be there for them. She asked her followers to keep praying as there is nothing God cannot do.
