I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder after having sex at 6 – TV Presenter, Abena Korkor


Popular Ghanaian TV Presenter and health activist, Abena Korkor has narrated how she was diagnosed with bipolar years after she had sex with a boy who was 13 while she was only 6-years-old.

The Ghanaian media personality who weeks ago released a list of prominent Ghanaians she has slept with, said 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.

She also revealed that anytime she experiences any of psychotic episodes, she becomes sexually hyperactive and as a result she tends to either talk alot about sex or engage in it.

Korkor said;

 

” 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.”
