Amanda, who is now famous for her role in Skeem Saam, also added an uplifting message to encourage others who may be going through tough times.
“I came across this picture from 3 years ago and it reminded me of a very sad time in my life. I was losing weight, losing jobs and losing my mind.
“I didn't think it would get better and didn't understand when everyone consoled me by saying, 'You'll be fine'.
“Listen. Bad times don't last forever and when things clear up, you'll forget you were ever in a dark place. If you're going through a tough time now. Tough people do.”
