She was happy, she was going to be a mother for the first time. But things didn’t go as she had imagined and planned. The little one was born with a heart malformation and after giving birth, she spread her wings to a better place. Today the memory of Joaquimthis was her name, continues to accompany her every day and every time the pain resurfaces.
The words of Fernanda Lessa
I remember its smell to this day. I imagine Giulia Cecchettin’s father, who lived with her for 22 years.
The well-known top model then spoke about her alcoholism and how today she understood that she had to be one better womanfor his daughters.
The first time I drank I was 14 years old, I was at school in Brazil. I drink and pass out. I wake up to two school psychologists and my mother. They told me it was time to go to a psychologist, I had always been a‘model student. I didn’t do therapy, unfortunately in the 80s psychiatry was only seen for people with serious problems. I drank because then I felt the most beautiful. I stopped drinking in 2014 because it wasn’t right with my girls, I didn’t want to be that kind of mother. When you become an alcoholic there is no cure, you must never drink again, if you relapse you must go back to treatment. When my girls were there I wasn’t myself anymore. I spent 5 years sober and had two relapses, one because a friend of mine jumped off the sixth floor. I started as a teenager, you have to avoid it, because the brain is still forming. If you do this, it is very likely that you will become an alcoholic.
A story through tears which moved Caterina Balivo and everyone present in the studio, just as it moved all the viewers at home. Today Fernanda Lessa is a better woman, reborn, but those dark moments from her past continue to exist accompany her day after day.
