EUCHARIA ANUNOBI: Seven months after son’s passing

Published

on

Will she ever forget the only ‘man’ that stood with her? Yes, their relationship as mother and child lasted 15 years, but it held much memory of trials, as her husband, Charles Ekwu, long abandoned them both.

The actress lost her son, Raymond, to sickle cell anemia on August 22, 2017 at the age of 15.

The pain of separation and struggle to keep her son alive must have brought her closer to God, to become an evangelist.

He would have been 16 this month. And she must immortalize him by way of continuing his passion. Thus, on February 16, 2018, the actress visited the motherless babies’ home, as was the tradition with mother and child.

She said: “I am going to do it the way my son and I had always done it and I would give out some of his personal effects. Normally, when someone dies, you do not touch their things for about a year. For instance, if a man’s wife dies he is not expected to touch her things or dispose of them till after a year.”

“Initially, I decided to do the same thing but I later changed my mind and that is why I donated some of his things to a government-owned motherless babies’ home and also to the boys at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys. I am doing this because I am a humanitarian and to let the motherless babies know that we love them.”

Last Thursday, she uploaded photos from the charity event, with a ‘thank you’ caption.

“This is thanking all the great people who came out to join me celebrate my late son, Raymond Ekwu’s post houmous 16th birthday at one of the orphanages in Lagos last Friday, the 16th February.”

Without Regular Sex Women Risk Mental Disorder – Psychiatrist

Published

on

A psychiatrist, Dr Maymunah Kadiri on Saturday advised married women to have regular sex with their spouses in order to prevent depression and gain happiness.

Depression is a common mental disorder that causes people to experience depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration.

Kadiri, the Medical Director of Pinnacle Medical Services gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Pinnacle is a health and wellness centre for psychological, behavioral, and mental health related issues.

According to her, sex is not just to nourish a woman’s body, but it is also beneficial to her mental health.

“As women, there is need for us to make our spouses our best friends if we want to be mentally healthy.

“Studies have shown that women who have more active sex and in long term relationships were less likely to be depressed than women who went without sex.

“So, more sex is important and essential. It is a remedy to curing women from having persistent headache.

“Low sexual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into. A woman can be depressed when that sexual drive that she used to have is no more there.

“Frequent active sex can play good roles toward women’s sense of well being and quality of life,’’ Kadiri said.

She explained that sex was not just for procreation and to have children, adding that it could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep.

Kadiri, popularly called ‘celebrity shrink’, urged women dealing with depression to frequently indulge in sex, while boosting their self-esteem.

She also advised women who are over-weight to also involve in active sex, saying doing so will boost endorphins which are happy hormones.

“The happy hormones will make them lose some calories as well as sleep better.

”Orgasms trigger the release of endorphins which are happy hormones secreted by the brain that act as effective painkillers,’’ she said.

She added that sex was not only beneficial to the men, but especially to women because it was capable of freeing them from stress.
