Transgender model Letoya Johnstone has appealed for help, saying she is battling depression.  

Through her social media Letoya said the trauma goes back to the things that old friends did to her. 

"Deep down I am suffering from depression! There are things that old friends put me through and everyday I wakeup I loose myself.

I don't know how I am surviving this but let's hope people will have to type rest in peace. I am the most lonely human being alive with no single friend," Letoya opened up. 

Letoya says strangers have been very helpful to her and have done the best for her.

"Look at Jonny Depp story or Robin Williams story . Celebrities like ourselves are going through the unthinkable. But we must create this facade to make others see the sparkle in us That's what everyone gets attracted to. I need help my people, I am dying. Please help me."

Mpasho contacted Letoya to find out more about what is ailing her, She said;

"Not at this point as I am deeply broken."

Earlier, Letoya hinted on having suicidal thoughts.
