“I just feel like I should be and can be open with y’all.. I been feeling so drained and I been telling people this but nobody listening cuz nobody care,” she wrote. “I been so numb to everything you would think I would be so excited with all my dreams coming true but I can’t feel nothing. People don’t treat me like a human no more they think I’m a money machine or a robot. Nobody asking me how I’m feeling or how I’m doing mentally Everybody call my phone and need something.”
“I would cry but crying never solved my problems. This sh*t hurt[broken heart emoji] people telling me ‘this what come with it’ ‘more money more problems’ they ain’t lying,” Omerettà added. “I’m grateful for my situation so so grateful[praying hands emoji] but I’m also tired and I’m hurting and I’m so drained to the point I don’t even wanna get out my bed I been arguing with people for weeks straight this sh*t got me physically sick.”
“From family feeling like I owe them my life to this snake ass business & people doing sh* t under my nose thinking I don’t know about it smh. I just wanted to let y’all know what’s up with me. Everytime I go missing from social media it’s because I’m drained and this sh*t don’t make it no better. Of course I got music on the way please don’t ask me I just need a min.”
