Then I asked myself, is this depression? or sad lang ako? Is it because mag-one year nang wala si mama and it still feels like yesterday? I confessed to one of my closest friends in the office (I only have a few) and she comforted me. Somehow, it helped. Then sa tuwing papasok ako ng office, my peers would say I look fresh and blooming. WHAT? I feel the opposite on the inside. As the day goes by, unti-unting nabawasan ang bigat sa loob ko. Still, I don't know if I'm doing okay or I'm just denying it.
There was this controversial statement of Joey de Leon on Eat Bulaga about depression that was contradicted by Maine Mendoza (applause for her), the posts of Lady Gaga on Twitter, the fight of Risa Hontiveros for Mental Health Law and recently, the suicide of Nadine Lustre's younger brother. I guess it's time for me to know more about it. Luckily, Bianca Gonzales tackled this on her latest vlog and CNN Philippines interviewed mental health advocate Kylie Versoza and Antoinette Taus.
I wanna share it with you, mga ateng. Let's educate ourselves about depression.
