- Joyce Mensah Dzidzor has opened up on an attemtpt to end her life weeks ago
- She revealed that Zylofon Media came to her aid and that prevented her from committing the dastardly act
Former HIV/AIDS ambassador Joyce Mensah Dzidzor, who was in the news some days ago over her attempt to take her own life and that of her children, has confessed that her threat was not a publicity stunt as she made the public believe.
According to the former HIV/AIDS ambassador, she only rescinded her decision of committing the act after Zylofon Media came to her aid.
According to Joyce Dzidzor, thoughts to end her life and that of her children filled her head on that fateful morning when she woke up from bed.
“I actually meant to go to the village, kill the children and myself as well…. I would never do that for attention. That was how I felt that day when I woke up; I woke up and just wanted to end it all,” she revealed in an interview with Graphic Online.
The mother of three went on to disclose that she was on medication for her mood disorder but on that said day, she would have gone ahead and carried out her threat but a worker from Zylofon media reached out to her and spoke to her to change her mind.
Not too long ago, the Former AIDS ambassador, took to social media to make a post about how she planned on ending her life and that of her three children.
She indicated that she was going to her village to commit the act and she was not going to change her mind.
Her post sparked concerns from social media users who made sure the post was shared to reach the appropriate bodies who would assist her.
Ms. Dzidzor, who made headlines some years after she openly confessed of not being an HIV patient after working with the Ghana AIDS Commission for some years, added that the first time she had plans of committing suicide was in 2016.
She expressed regret over the disclosure of her HIV status, and said she was remorseful for endangering the lives of her children and entire family.
According to her, she was dedicated to educating people to help them to accept and live with HIV, not knowing the stigma associated with the disease was going to affect her family.
