Ghanaian TV Presenter and health activist, Abena Korkor, has narrated how she was diagnosed with bipolar years after she had sex with a boy while she was she still a minor.
According to the media personality who recently released a list of prominent Ghanaians she has slept with, she was only 6-years-old when she first had sex.
She made this revelation in an interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso, on the Delay show that while trying to figure out the genesis of her mental problem, she found out that none of her family members had it.
Speaking further, she disclosed that anytime she experiences any of psychotic episodes, she becomes sexually hyperactive and as a result she tends to either talk a lot about sex or engage in it.
In her words,
- “I can’t say for a fact that having sex at age 6 brought about my mental illness. What I know is, I’ve never seen myself as one who fits in and when I was in Tertiary, I felt within my system that all wasn’t well. So I immediately went to the hospital and when they couldn’t treat me, I was sent to the Accra Psychiatric hospital where I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.”
