Dear Aunty Lisa
I am a fire victim. I lost everything belonging to my daughter and I. This happened on the first day of June this year. I am a single mother.
I have been depressed. I cry night and day. I can’t afford rent now; neither have I got any help from the ruling party politicians I voted for. They only made promises.
I am in a stressful position now because I am pregnant and I am expected to have my baby in September.
I tried counselling, but it has not helped. I hardly sleep. I eat once per day. I get slimmer every day and I have only visited the clinic once. I have given up on myself for months now.
The only reason why I am breathing is because I have an 11-year-old depending on me. I have severe headaches day and night because I remember what I had and how comfortable I used to be.
I feel I am getting mad because I don’t have anyone to help me, except the guys that I used to be have se_x with.
My heart aches every day. I asked God why, and when would I ever smile again. Please pray for my daughter, who doesn’t talk much or express her feelings.
I worry a lot about her even more than myself. Trust me, it is just a tiny piece of me that is holding on.
