Nigerian actress, Bimbo Ademoye, has opened up on being Agoraphobic, a type of anxiety disorder which involves fearing and avoiding places or situations that might cause panic and feelings of being trapped, helpless or embarrassed.
This she said, started with her having a low self esteem which was as a result of the effect the divorce of her parents had on her.
She disclosed this in a sit-down with the YouTuber Hawa Magaji, she said:
“If I’m in a room with more than 10 people, I start to have an anxiety attack. I think my social anxiety came from having low self-esteem issues growing up, not being with my parents. I grew up with this thought in my head that nobody wanted to be around me’’.
Ademoye stated that she would rather be alone than suffer the pain of dealing with others.
In her words,
“I don’t really like human beings because I feel like they are full of shit based on my experience. Most times I love to be by myself. I’d rather not deal with the hurt that people tend to bring. I’d rather just be on my own and just be around the few people that I’ve given access to me“.
The actress revealed that she still deals with anxiety, and her dad helps her with it, hence their closeness.
