Many times we have been discussing stress and how severe it can affect someone in diaspora if s/he doesnt seek medical attention. Stress can destroy your future,can even kill you. What David Kikaawa did was a result of collective combined stress. You could tell from the way he was drinking and partying.
Many people think alcohol is a stress reliever but scientific facts say alcohol worsens stress.I urge my dear brothers and sisters in diaspora with stress to seek medical advise because its provided free of charge. There are so many disgruntled men/women who brought their partners from Ug living in fear of loosing them just like Kikaawa did but hoping things will get better. Living in fear triggers stress faster.
People in the Diaspora drink a lot and they believe is cool.The worst Thing is they even Abandon Religion which is the best Stress reliever. people always ignore the fact that stress is a mental disability.We should learn to control anger and to also seek counseling and advice. Some pple think if they don’t tok about their problems, kijja kugwa.In the UK where the woman carries more weight than the dude , Linah involved the authorities when it turned violent & David just lost the plot.
One sign of a person who can do what Kikaawa did is living in denial,Its only people in medical line and those who have personally experienced the severity of stress that understand what Kikaawa went through,The rest think he is just a murderer and so one..I personally think he was sick..I condemn the act becoz he would have prevented it by treating stress but not avoiding it like many of you think. Stress can make one worthless.
David was living at Palmerston Rd before he moved out of the house two weeks ago! But he wasn’t on drugs and he has been saying this all the time( killing his wife), and all thought was a joke of being jealous. The man was stressed about something and needed help.It’s very common for women to seek medical help unlike men who live in denial and suffer in silence.
It’s very difficult to convince people living in Uganda and have never been abroad that stress needs medical attention, and u can’t blame them because they dont understand what Diasporas go through, but we just have to keep trying. Education is the key.I’ve heard so many people saying “they didn’t know what stress/depression was until they came to the diaspora”and that’s true. Diaspora stress is a big time silent killer!! Stress is a very big problem which needs to be addressed before it reaches a stage of no return that is total mental disorder. Bcoz in that stage the victim cannot help himself out!
So my advice is to talk to a friend or communicate maturely with an understanding person if you are stressed.Stress is a common dish in Diaspora, even bills cause it, train leaving you in winter causes stress but learning that there is no situation u cant over come may be the only remedy. That’s why i like Denmark all this stress Medical help is free. Everything there is free.
May their souls R.I.P. let’s continue praying for their innocent daughter coz her life is completely doomed!!!My heart is bleeding for the traumatized orphan i wish Dave had thought deeper just for the sake of this little angel may God surround her with the most caring relatives and friends and bless her with a good future Ameen
