My name is Happiness Okekeni Destiny. I am 31 years old. I noticed few months after my wedding in 2013, a lump on my left breast. It wasn't there before I married but appeared few months into my wedding. I was really scared and concerned. I noticed sometimes it increases in size and sometimes it decreases in size. I visited the teaching hospital with my mum in 2016 two years after I had my baby.
…The pathetic story of a gruesome circumcision
That was where Edem Okon lived until November 19, 2018.
At 42, Edem is still a virgin. Nothing to cheer about this development given that it wasn’t really her choice.
If she had a choice, Edem would have long been married and probably had all her children by now. But no man would want to have a relationship with her, on a good day. Hence virginity for Edem became a burden she had to bear, due to complications she developed after she was circumcised as a child by no other person than her mother.
“I used to be healthier than I look now but since I was told that I had Fibroid, my body got thinner and the stomach bigger. In our community, there are many explanations for this kind of looks ranging from witchcraft to “mbiam”...everything but Fibroid. A lot of people have come to me with different local medications telling it will suck all that is making my stomach to swell and everything will get back to normal.
A lot of women are going through so many things in the hands of family members because of Fibroid. After I had my first child, and couldn’t get pregnant again for a long time, I decided to seek help. You know as a religious person, the first thing I did was to go to church and seek spiritual help considering the fact that everything that happens has a spiritual undertone.
I’m very grateful to God for keeping me alive even though I walk with a cane now I’m eternally grateful.
Wow I am full of gratitude. It’s exactly 3years today I was involved in a ghastly accident with multiple fracture of my right femur.
So, on this fateful day at 10.30 pm 4th November 2016 on my way home just 5mins from my house this drunken driver hit me hard, it was head on collision. It was a bad day. I had just buried my Dad 2 months prior to this sad Day. Before his death his final words were ” A good man will have good money but not all rich men are good men. To be a good man you must give back to the community consciouly”…
