I acted immediately and started planning myself.

Blames family and herself

Apart from the violence she quickly escaped from, Nyaminde says she was also part of the problem; as she often hosted her family members every now and then – making privacy a problem for husband.

I also contributed to the breakup. I think by the time one thing that contributed to our breakup was that I was with my relatives all the time. My sisters were always at my house, I didn’t see a big deal with it until later on after we broke up, he mentioned it to his friend.


I didn’t see that. Looking at it now I am like, I contributed to their coming. I went overboard. I enjoyed their company but it cost me.

Having learnt her lesson the hard way, the popular actress now says;

I no longer entertain visitors even my relatives. People need their personal space. It’s one of the things. You have to be mentally prepared to have friends over.

How she unknowingly battled Postpartum depression

Just like most mums, Ms Nyaminde ended up with postpartum depression  which comes to new mums; but unfortunately she was not aware the whole time.

From the post, the mother of one says the postpartum depression slowly graduated from feeling sad during the evenings; to crying and just like that depression took over.

But then almost immediately, I started having feelings that I did not understand. I was extremely sad…There was this hollowness that would show up, especially in the evenings. I’d experience such anxiety and just start crying. I didn’t understand it,  I’d never heard of it. It just didn’t feel right.I mean I was supposed to be happy .

I had just been blessed with the most precious gift. I hated that feeling. I hated evenings. I told nobody about it. It just slowly slipped away…Only later did I get to know that what I went through was called Postpartum Depression.
