A TIKTOK star revealed she was “scared” and “struggled so much” in several heartbreaking videos days before her “sudden” death.
Mother of two Jehane Thomas, 30, would have passed away on March 17 after suffering migraine so painful that she could not get up.
On TikTok And InstagramJehane was known for sharing footage of her preparing packed lunches for her two boys, as well as cleaning hacks and running errands.
She also documented her health struggles, resulting in repeated hospitalizations and agonizing waiting times for treatment.
In a clip posted Tuesday, she described how difficult it was to show her kids how sick she was and “wobbled” like she was drunk.
“No one takes me seriously,” she said with tears in her eyes.
“I keep saying it but I’m just so fed up with it and if anything I’m so scared because it’s my head and it feels like my head is going to fall off.
“I just don’t know what to do.”
In another, shared two days before she died, Jehane said she was “afraid” of being moved to the operating room to treat her headaches.
A few hours later she said, “I’m having such a hard time this morning.”
Across images of her lying in a hospital bed, Jehane, who recounted how she was denied surgery a week earlier, wrote: “Still waiting to go down for surgery.
“The reason they didn’t do the surgery last week was because it would fix the fluid problem in me.
“I’ve had four liters of fluid in me and my head is terrible this morning.
“I’m just waiting to see if I can take one of my Frovatriptan tablets before surgery, as no other pain relief takes this pressure off, or if I have to sit it out and hope the surgery gives me immediate relief.
“I can’t lift my head without wanting to be sick and I can’t walk – I have to be driven everywhere, that’s how bad the pain is.”
Jehane, who has 87,000 TikTok and Instagram followers and millions of views, died “suddenly” two days later, her best friend Alyx Reast said.
She added: “I feel like I can’t breathe. We still don’t have answers.
“You are all the good things in the world. I’m going to miss you every day.
“Thank you for being relentlessly yourself. You are my hero.”
You are all the good in the world. I’m going to miss you every day.
