HIV positive actress, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah shares emotional post
Ghanaian actress, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has appealed to everyone to treat her children with kindness when she’s no more.
The former HIV/AIDS ambassador, who has been open about her HIV status, took to her Facebook to share an emotional post, detailing her emotional and mental struggles with the virus.
In what seems to be her 14th anniversary of living with HIV/AIDS, Joyce urged people not to mistreat her children when she dies because of her HIV status and past mistakes.
“In September 2007 when I was diagnosed, tears never departed from me…. i consoled my mother to stop crying and told her i wasn’t bothered about my status…..but when everyone is sleeping deep at night, I’d sneak out to cry out loud….
“And when I started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk….I maintained s smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me. I have been admitted to the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in a psychiatric hospital for major depression. Due to my constant admission, my son Prince was taken away from me.
“But now I’m weak…Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes. God bless you all.”
