  2. Overthinking lang. You are depressed because you think you are depressed. Ganyan lang ang buhay.

    4. I assume you haven't experienced it. Be thankful. Depression is not an easy battle. Been there back in 2009 and the blade of our kitchen knife was kinda well acquainted with my left pulse

    9. Kala mo lang yan 12:33, im a very optismistic person, bubbly, cheerful. All changed when ive given birth, here goes the PPD. In uncontrollable, hindi mo lam pano ka suddenly biglang naiba ang timpla. You became very emotional, sensitive, easily get cried,easily get hurt and all. Halos gabi gabi akong umiiyak at daming iniisp. I kept praying pero parang walang talab. Took more than a year to overcome. Ngayon mapapaisip na lang ako at natatawa. Omg,bkit super sensitive ko nun at maiisip bakit kaya dati yung ganitong bagay or problem iniiyakan mo nun panhon n yun ngyon hindi na. Because when your on depression,you are a different person. Hindi maccontrol kung anuang timpla ng hormones,emotions or kung ano pa naman ang nangyayari sayo.

    11. 12:48- in fairness to Joey de Leon he did apologiZe and admitted he - and everyone his age - were not aware of depression because it wasn’t talked about before. He also apologised to Maine Mendoza who blocked his comments despite him being her boss/one of the senior dabarkads. He also gave tape the idea to produce the short film about depression which shamaine and Noni buencamino participated in. Good he manned up and admitted he was wrong.

  3. Good share from TJ lalo na now madaming nagpapakamatay dahil sa depression and most of them are from rich family pa or like nun kpop guy na nagpakamatay din dahil sa depression kahit na he has everything.

  4. Kudos to TJ for being brave to share his story so that many would be aware of mental health issues. Depression is just one of the many mental issues and I hope other celebrities or people of influence would be as open as TJ to share their stories to inspire people undergoing mental health issues. "YOU WILL BE ALRIGHT" is such a powerful message.

  7. i have depression when i was in highschool, everything is fine but i just dont feel happy. i always felt empty inside, holidays dont mean to me as it makes me more lonely. no one knew until i attended college and my life became worst, too much pressure from my family that i tried suicide a lot of times (lucky the scar are not noticeable now). now with kids i have post partum depression,the negative feeling is twice more than before that now when i think of suicide its should not be me alone but should be with my kids.

    1. anon 136, after reading ur post I felt like you were voicing my own suffering. Every word u said is exactly how I experienced back in hi-school until now I'm a mom of 2. Till now, I have no idea why I'm like this. I avoid or scared of people, I'm always sad. I thought of committing suicide many times but it's always my kids that stops me from doing so. We live comfortably dito sa Canada pero im sad most of the time i don't know why

    4. Hugs, sisters. Brothers, too. I did went through mild depression some years ago, but grateful that it did not escalate thanks to the support and loyalty of my partner. I see the world now in a more positive note. Once in a while, I still am sad too without reason, but it doesn't linger for days now, just for a few hours.

      Please don't hesitate to ask help professional or otherwise if it becomes too much, like you're drowning and just want to let go and end it. Meanwhile, talk, chat, reach out to people who are close to you. Even a few minutes of pleasant interactions per day will help tremendously. Turn to some hobbies that need focus, or read books. You'll get there ❤

Hndi nawawala ung nararamdaman ko pro kahit pano nababawasan.

    8. Hi 2:28, try to walk everyday in sunshine, according to study, kaya marami depressed in canada because lack of sunshine. Sunshine can bring out the happy hormones. Try to mingle, staying at home with no one to talk to, can lead you thinking of negative things. My solution, I go out, from time to time, spend Me time and spend time with friends.

    12. 5:43 wag ka naman ganyan sa may pinagdadaanan. It may not be a big deal to you and you may not understand depression pero magpakatao ka naman. You might be trolling and laughing after typing your comment/s but those people with depression might take your words seriously and do something to harm themselves. Your comment could be the “trigger” so please stop being insensitive.

    13. TAMA SI 5:43! Subukan niyo munang mamuroblema na wala na kayong kakainin hindi niyo iisiping magpakamatay dahil gusto mong mabuhay!

    14. Agree with you, 5:43. Maraming totoong may depression pero marami ring nagiinarte lang.

  11. sa experience ko, depressed ako kasi di ako kontento sa buhay ko. parang nghahanap ako lagi ng escape na ayoko dito sa buhay na napuntahan ko. parang wala kang karapatang maging masaya kasi everyday may problema. may mga taong nkapanakit sa akin, sa pamilya ko at asawa ko. its so hard to forget. i always pray to God na tanggalin sa puso ko yung galit sa amin ng husband ko kasi mabigat.

  12. To 1:36 and 2:28- and everyone who has depression especially with suicidal thoughts- please seek professional/medical help. There is hope and help available to you. I went through depression as well in my 20s. You can be alright.

  13. A few months ago I was depressed and had anxiety attacks due to a traumatic experience that was triggered by another traumatic experience. I seek medical help thinking that my bp is already high. The medications helped but meron pa rin akong ibang naramdaman. So I talked with my friends who happen to be psychologists and shared to them what I am going through. They are saying na symptoms of anxiety and depression daw iyon. They kept checking on me and saying that just hold on. Life is beautiful. You have a lot to be thankful for. We are just here for you. But one thing that stick to my mind was “don’t ever give up.” So I wonder why they said not to give up. Then one day, I saw a scissor and a knife. And I suddenly remembered what my friends told me. So this is what they meant pala na not to give up. From then on I kept all the scissor and knives in our house. I prayed to God day in, night out, anywhere I am. I go to church everyday and poured my heart out because I’m scared of everything. And I don’t know what I am scared of. I am just scared. I am scared of the future of what my nieces and nephews will become. My parents. My siblings. At night, one questions leads to another until it will no longer stopped. One day, I was crying myself out to God asking for his help and told him, “God, I am scared. I don’t have any problems but I am just scared.” When I looked at the girl at my back, she was also crying. And I told myself, maybe her problem is bigger than mine. And I felt ashamed of myself as I am worrying for the things that has not yet happened. That was my wake-up call. From then on, I surrendered myself to god and let him steer the wheel of my life. I am happy but the depression is still there but not as the same as before.

    As much as possible, avoid pork meat and softdrinks to prevent the depression.

  14. Pano ba malalabanan ang depression? Tanong ko din yan sa sarili ko. yung pakiramdam na nakakatakot na ang future, na parang mag isa ka lang s mundo. Kahit sa trabaho ang laging nahihighlight pagkakamali mo. Down na down na yung feeling mo lalo ka pang nadodown. Parang robot ka nalang. Wala ka ng ma feel. Hayss

    1. Nakakatulong ang gamot talaga, i can attest to it. If it seems like nothing u try makes a difference, consult na sa doctor. Pero mahabang gamutan yan, seriously 6 months minimum.

  15. Totally relatable...I’ve also experienced depression before and believe me it was hell!!! I lost 15lbs and I had to see a doctor to keep my sanity. Thank you TJ for sharing your experience. This will not just help people who are experiencing depression right now but also to those people who had experience it. Thank you for speaking on our behalf...

  16. As I read TJ's story on e-news, I literally cried because I think that is what I'm going through right now. It's almost 3 months now since I had these major heartbreak and life transitions. I couldn't get enough sleep at night. There are times na nagigising ako ng 3AM then d na makabalik sa tulog til sun rises up. I couldn't get help from friends because they're always unavailable and I don't want to them to perceive it as "I'm spreading negative vibes". I'm scared of being judged. But all I wanted was to talk about my problems, I just want someone to listen and understand or explain to me what's going on with me. Coz I can't understand myself anymore. I couldn't afford to get help from professionals and pay P2000/session. I have this feeling to get help from people on my messenger list, but I'm scared coz I know these people wouldn't even bother to reply or listen. You're lucky if you find someone who will listen to you and genuinely understand how you feel without judging. I just wish I could also find someone like that.

    1. If I can get in touch with you, I am willing to listen to you. Been the sounding board among my friends and some family members for years, I seriously think for some time now that I should have had a career in psychology/psychiatry. Joking aside, just reach out hun. Don't be afraid to talk. It's actually easier in social media. Chances are, they might be waiting for someone to talk to as well. Best of luck hun, hugs and lots of encouragement to you. Start with a simple hello to a friend or relative you weren't in touch for a long time. ❤️

      I've been there too, and I managed to get over it with this mantra I came across while watching Barbie of all things. "You're braver than you think."

    2. true! kaya wala na naniniwala sa katulad ko na totoong may sakit at gusto gumaling pero walang gusto tumulong.

      Delete
    3. 3:05 kasi ba naman baka arte mo lang yan? O, ok ba na masabihan ka ng ganyan? Anyway agree ka naman na ang ibang ay sakit nagiinarte lang diba? Kung wala kayong empathy sa ibang tao, wag na mag expect din ng tulong sa iba. Yan ang rason kung bakit di tayo nagtutulugan.

      Delete
    4. 9:05 Ok lang, sanay na ko sa mga katulad mo. Dahan dahan ka lang sa pagsalita mo na wala kaming empathy, hindi mo alam. Isa sa dahilan ng sakit ko ay 18 years na pag aalaga ng 2 matatanda na yung isa 2 beses na nastroke. Pag may kasama ka araw araw na nawawalan ng pag asa sa buhay, pilit mo sila inaangat at tinutulungan at the expense na ang sarili mong pangangailangan ay nakakalimutan mo na. Labis na pagod at hirap ng buhay ng mahabang panahon, maski gaano ka ka-positive mag isip, tatablan ka din kahit konti. Lumabas yung physical symptoms ng sakit ko, parehas ng heart attack kaya madalas ako nasusugod sa er. Nagb-bleeding din ako sa mga lugar na hindi naman dapat labasan ng dugo. Nahihimatay basta basta. Pag mangyari sayo yan, hindi mo lubos maisip bakit nangyayari at matatakot ka. Matatakot ka kasi kung magkasakit ka, paano na lang yung matatandang sayo din naka asa? Kung makapagsalita ka, akala mo ginusto din namin ito. Isipin mo din na sa mga katulad mo naririnig ko nung bago ko pa lang nalaman ang sakit ko, cinonvince ko din sarili ko na umaarte lang ako eh. Pinarusahan ko na sarili ko sa pag iisip na umaarte lang ako kasi sabi ninyo. Kaya kung sino ka man, alam ko may dahilan ka din para makapag salita ng ganyan. Dahan dahan lang pag minsan. Hindi naman namin hinihiling na kaawaan nyo kami. Tinutulungan ka din namin na intindihin kami kaya ko ineexplain dito ang nangyari. Madali at mabilis kami ma-judge pero hindi madali at sobrang tagal gumaling from it.
