This your story was almost similar to mine but God had a hand and turned my fortunes around...

I gained admission

Dad had stroke

Dad lost his job

I got scholarships

I finished from school

Family went bankrupt treating dad up to the point he had to sell one of his houses

I eventually got a good job

Dad died

Life goes on

December 2017 just a few weeks to Christmas I lost all of my birds (200 layers and 100 broilers). It was an extremely sad event.

Getting angry.. it almost ruined my relationship. I don't know if this is spiritual problem .. but the thing is anytime I think of settling down.. one thing will happen that will make me say something that will ruin the relationship. And what I will say will be unforgivable. I am still begging my fiancee since 4 days ago for the statement I uttered.

Where should I begin?



All is water under the bridge.
The fact that I am still alive and kicking on today means there is still hope to recover all that was lost.

efcc use me shine, e no beta for my barrister, that conniving bastard, he was biting me and blowing me breeze, did know he conspired with efcc legal department.

the useless inexperienced barr, went behind me negotiating with efcc legal, they added an extra charge that I didn't do, so I can pay more fine, the barr was telling me to plea guity, that was my biggest undoing.
I had to use him cos my case was transferred from lagos to a northern state.
lesson learnt,
-never trust any resident lawyer of any zone or station.

Battling depression since I was 13 years cos of family issues.

i didn't even know my worry is depression until recently 2015 when Buhari sank millions of people into my condition,

everyone started talking about depression that's when I started paying attention about mental health issues.

Lost almost all my savings to an investment-gone-wrong;

Processed UAE Visa to maybe work and recover but agent eloped;

Tried again, got to UAE and didn't get a job;

Came back to Nigeria to try again and burglars came in to cart all my properties away
