She went on to say how she suffered from psychological trauma. “I’ve been in a state of stress and anxiety, just trying to figure out how I’m going to re-navigate myself from the psychological trauma. I’ve been doing a lot of reflection, soul-searching of having a deep conversation with myself. I think the solution I’ve got, it’s all giving me stress and making me anxious… making me congested mentally,” Dineo shared.
