Prasiddha Gautam


The Gold star Stefanie Martini came out as bisexual in June 2021. Currently, she is living a blissful life with her partner, El Wood.

Moreover, her girlfriend had depression since her early teenage but repressed it to look cool in front of friends. Well, El has learned to live with her mental disorders and now works as an Intimacy coordinator and a model.

Stefani’s Partner Had Tendencies to Self-Harm

It all began when El was 12 years old. Her parents got divorced, and she had to move to a lot of places and change schools.

She said that phase was the worst time of her life. El became overwhelmed and didn’t even want to go to school.

Unfortunately, she got into drugs and was prone to self-infliction. Plus, her father and mother didn’t know what to do with her.

El couldn’t share her feelings with anyone and felt isolated and disconnected. The peers El hung out with were also negative ones. These aspects led her to depression during her early days.

The model felt embarrassed to talk about her mental disorders. Further, she pretended that everything was fine. Due to repressed emotions, her panic attacks got out of control, and she even tried to kill herself.

As time went on, El had to take medication for depression. She took Sertraline, which is a drug used to manage and treat major depressive disorders.

Sertraline minimized her mental disorder, but it only had temporary effects. Unfortunately, her depression was returning time and again.

When El tried to take a break from the medicine, it got even worse as she felt even more depressed and had suicidal thoughts. Well, the drug had made it hard for her in the long run.

A ray of hope shone in her life when she stopped taking medication for a year. El Wood’s depression hadn’t gone, but she got better at coping with it.

She addressed that taking medicine is great for temporary relief but emphasized that in the long run, counseling and exercising would assist.
