Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko's daughter Saumu Mbuvi has opened up on why her relationships haven't been working out.

Speaking to vlogger, Sharon Mwangi, Saumu who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, says the type of people she settles with are narcissists who have dragged her down given her condition.

She said that Lamu senator Anwar Loitiptip, her ex-lover was a major trigger for her bipolar disorder.

"For me, relationships have not been working out because of the type of partners I have been choosing. I have been going for narcissists who have been dragging me down. They are the worst people to deal with if you have bipolar," she said.

"I would wind up in hospital every two months. I was having hypomania episodes. I was not okay and this person would drag me down."

 The sad revelation is that Loitiptip would even ridicule her when she was not feeling well.

Narrating how she realized she learned she had bipolar, Saumu said;

"I had a breakdown and I had to be taken to hospital, and that is when I was diagnosed. That was eight years ago."

Adding that,

I was completely sick, I guess I had a trigger. I did not know I had bipolar for a long time. The minute I had a trigger, that completely broke me down. I would be rushed to the hospital. That is when I was diagnosed."

Asked how she is managing the diagosis Saumu said that she went to therapy and she has set her boundaries against people who stress her.

I cut off people and relationships. Now I’m at a good place.

For me when I break down, I start reading the Bible like the whole day. I get super spiritual." She said.
