Nigerian man has taken to social media to share his depression story. According to the narrator, identified simply as @blck_rekky, he was so depressed at some point in his life that he contemplated suicide as he shared his story on Twitter.

The Twitter user said he lost hope after graduating with a Second class lower, and what made it worse, was the fact that his dad made a first class in Mathematics. According to him, to rub salt on injury, he was called back to school that he had failed a second semester course. Luckily, he says he wrote the exams over summers and passed.

That would have been good right? but no. He went from feeling he had let his parents down to researching simple ways to end his life – between when he graduated and was waiting for NYSC. He recounted he faked happiness before his whole family, and that he couldn’t talk to anyone.

How did he get out?

He said he started talking to God and also his best friend. He also said he stopped listening to melancholic songs and that was out he was able to overcome those dark days of his life.
