Cheetah And JeA Open Up About Their Experiences With Depression
In the most recent episode of “Strong My Way,” Cheetah and JeA talked about depression.
A 22-year-old college student who is doing part-time work after taking a break from school said she has no interest in everything these days. She confessed she would space out and pinch her thigh like a habit, and when she came back to consciousness, she would have a bruise from it. Her friends told her she looks like she’s having a hard time and advised her to go to a hospital, but she’s afraid to go because the medical record might be an obstacle in the path of her career later on.
Cheetah and JeA expressed empathy to her situation. Cheetah said she had been in the same situation recently. JeA confessed she avoided people because she had a difficult time being bright in front of others while being depressed by herself. She said even her heart thumped whenever she received a call.
Then JeA started tearing up as she admitted she regained strength after receiving treatment. She regretted not getting help sooner and advised the college student to visit a hospital as soon as possible before things become even more difficult.
Cheetah revealed she frankly told her fans about her depression, and in turn, her fans started to confess about their own experiences with it as well. The rapper also stressed the fact that others will not able to access her counseling records and that receiving psychiatric treatment is actually a healthy sign.
