Shebeena’s Story.


When I discovered that my husband had been having an affair, I felt like my life was over. He was my world, my everything. I didn’t want to live any more. I felt like I’d been punched in the stomach.

It was only because of our baby daughter that I didn’t kill myself.

I knew I needed to get help so she would still have her mum but I had already tried to take an overdose but I lost my nerve and made myself sick.

I couldn’t believe it when my counsellor gave me her phone number and said I could ring her at any time, day or night, even on Christmas Day.

She asked me to make an agreement that I would call her and speak to her if I felt like harming myself or wanted to end my life at any time.

I think she had to repeat it several times before I really understood.

It felt like someone really cared about me and what happened to me.

Then she encouraged me to talk – it was like I couldn’t stop talking!

All my pain came tumbling out – I cried during every session.

I thought I would never stop crying but I did in the end and then I began to rebuild my life with my daughter.

I’ve got a long way to go but I’m so glad I made the decision to reach out for help.

MCTC have made it all possible.
