PETALING JAYA: He was a generous man who spoiled her and showered her with expensive gifts.
But the sweet romance ended bitterly – with Lydia (not her real name) spiralling into drug abuse, depression and a distrust of older men.
Lydia, who met her sugar daddy when she was in her 20s, was introduced to drugs by the man and became dependent on them. She was forced to join group sex and other abnormal sexual acts while intoxicated.
It was tough, but Lydia managed to get out of the relationship, recover from depression and is now married with two children.
Until today, she still has issues with intimacy.
Lydia, who wanted her story told, was treated by Malaysian Mental Health Association deputy president Datuk Dr Andrew Mohanraj for her deep emotional scars.
