Though it was not easy but I was kind of prepared for it as I had made up my mind to move on. Honestly I never wanted to quit but I just could not continue anymore. My health woes were worsening day by day. I am on immunotherapy shots. I have developed HAH (High Altitude Headaches) & Back Spasms. My allergies have boomed & the doc asked me to take it easy or i would collapse n reach the ICU. It was high time I looked after myself. So I left the show”.
