While many view depression in a bad way, it surely assisted Sophie Lichaba in ignoring any social media bullying about her weight loss.

She said that she was too depressed to even care about what people were saying.

The former actress, Sophie Ndaba, who became famous for her acting skills whilst playing the role of Queen Moroka on Generations, has revealed her depression while she was fighting diabetes away from the public eye.

Speaking to Radio 2000 this weekend, Sophie said the social media had no impact on her during her most challenging time.

The actress who has been off screens because of her prolonged diabetes illness has been a victim of cyberbullying due to her weight loss.

At one point, the internet was full of her death l rumors which she says it led her into depression.

But the actress says at that time she never saw anything wrong with her body.

She told the radio that she could still see herself as the Generations “Queen” and could wear those clothes and people’s opinions did not make sense.

“I was at the deepest point of depression. I can’t even explain it. When I think about it, I am like ‘God, you saved me’ because I would look in the mirror and see the same voluptuous woman. You wear the same clothes, the same style at that size and you still think it is normal. That is how deep it was, I couldn’t see a thing.”

“It was like ‘Who are they talking about? They are talking about me!’ I snapped out of it. Nobody came to me, no friends came to me, and said ‘I think you are losing weight too rapidly. Are you still on that diet?” she was quoted saying.
