I remember I went to my favourite restaurant and asked for fries and I was joking with the waiter on how those were the last fries I would ever eat.

Ex-Classic 105 radio host Tina Kaggia has shared how a failed suicide attempt left her in ICU for 9 days.

This was after she took lots of pills in an attempt to end her life after battling depression for a long.

Speaking during an interview with Angel Waruinge, the talented radio queen shared:

”I had suicidal thoughts every now and then.”

Tina added that the thoughts were for a while after a person unknowingly made a comment that made her snap out of her cocoon

”We were in a meeting when someone said,‘you keep saying you will kill yourself please don’t do it before this date.’’

To date I do not blame the person, because  it was innocently said.”

That is when I snapped out of the suicidal thoughts.

Tina who was battling depression at the time booked herself in at a facility for 8 days.

‘Two months later she was back in hospital but for a different reason as she had tried taking her life and failed.

”I tried to commit suicide and it was almost successful, I was out cold in ICU for 9 days.

I have a bit of recollection but I don’t remember all the events of that day. I remember I went to my favourite restaurant and asked for fries and I was joking with the waiter on how those were the last fries I would ever eat.

And he just looked at me thinking, what this girl is saying.

When I woke up and I did not know where I was, I also did not have a voice and that shocked me.

My aunt came to visit and that is when she told me what transpired. Later I started having hallucinations maybe because of the pills I took.

I am now very cautious of what I watch and listen to.”

Tina thanked her family for standing by her throughout her journey.
