I was almost giving up – Size 8 opens up on illness, depression

Gospel singer Size 8 Reborn on Thursday opened up on the medical condition she has been battling for the past six years, admitting that she was on the verge of giving up.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, the Afadhali Yesu singer revealed that she has had issues with blood pressure since January 2015 and at some point, it was too much to bear.

Since 2015 January I have had health issues and I never shared that side of my life. I remember I once collapsed in town and I was told my pressure was too high.

“I have been on medication for a long time and I have been in and out of hospital. This time it was serious as I was slipping into depression and I was almost giving up. I was tired of fighting and that is partly why I stopped putting up posts on social media,” she told her husband DJ Mo.

Size 8 further said that she was frustrated because she could not go about her daily routine due to her illness and were it not for God she would have given up.

“Were it not for God I would have given up completely…I was not okay physically and my heart was also giving up the fight.

“DJ Mo really encouraged me and he was tough on me…I really thank him for that,” she added.

She also thanked friends and family who stood with her during her illness, saying she is feeling much better and is on the path to full recovery.

Size 8 was admitted to hospital three weeks ago but was recently discharged and has been recovering from home.
