  1. Seeing your child Having to go though this is so heart breaking. My son is 14yrs old and asked me what is the meaning of his life and sometimes he just want to end it all, he cant explain fhe pain daw. So just be kind, hindi talaga natin alam deep inside ang pinagdadaanan ng isang tao.

    2. I'm hoping that you have already seek professional help. Sometimes talking and checking on a person is not enough, we also need to be open to medications that may help one's condition.

    4. You need to seek help for your son before it's too late, ma'am. Often it's a chemical imbalance in the brain and your son may need to take some meds to correct it. Prayers to your son.

    6. I have a friend who once asked me why do ppl exist, what if there’s no really heaven or hell , what if we’re just like cow, dogs when they die wala na unknowningly may depression pla she’s extrovert sinasarili nyang prob. we thought maliit n problem lng sa kanya pala parang end of the world na. depression is real let’s take it seriously.

    7. i disagree with the medication. magiging dependent lang sya sa meds. open communication is important and surround him with positive friends. iwasan din ang monotonous life engage him sa different activities sports etc.

    8. nagpapasalamat ako sa Diyos.. traffic lang sa EDSA problema ko...

    9. I suggest that you have family therapy. Yes the whole family. Your 14 y/o son will need all the support and understanding in order to build his confidence so he can overcome his depression.

    10. 12:30 when I was 18 years old like your son I started questioning about my life. Why I need to stop my studies?,How about my dreams?,What my friends or others gonna say/think? A lot of What ifs'.I keep overthinking at night, I always cry, pain in chest (sometimes I hit myself because it really hurts) and I always ask god why is this happening. I feel Im depressed that time but I don't want to admit it and share about it because I don't want to think about having a depression and I don't want a another problem to add. About 2 years feeling that pain at somehow I download a bible(Youversion bible app) and there's is a plan to help you about life, so I chose depression and about my worries. I read it everyday and makes me feel better but not just easy. it's a process to me and I need to be consistent.And right now 22 years old I feel much better than yesterday. There is no help of others, It's only me and my faith in God that helps me to get better every. I always tell to myself "Be very patient with yourself. Keep reminding yourself that things are working out for you. What doesn’t make sense now will soon bring you clarity and peace. You’ll understand why certain things happened a certain way. It’s all in divine timing. Stay positive about everything."

      FOR ME KEEP PRAYING AND HAVE FAITH IN HIM.

      PS
      This is the way i survived and I want to share my experience(its my first to talk about to others)
      Sorry for my grammar.

  2. Oh please stop!Just stop! stop sensationalizing suicide. It never did good and never do good ever. Stop posting these kind of "success stories" from your suicidal thoughts. YOU ARE GIVING A WRONG INFORMATION to children or anyone whose feeling depress. Am I the only one thinking not to televise or make an headline about people committed suicide or people "success stories" about not committing suicide. STOP IT! for the record. Studies show, there is a DOMINO EFFECT in terms of suicide. lalo na kung ang nag suicide eh someone you are looking up to. You will think, aww if he's too cool but still committed suicide. then who am I not to? Guys, let. that. sink. in.

    2. Gab, pls don’t compare yourself to your dad. Just be thankful that the Gary V is your dad and be proud of him. Just be yourself and think of goals that will make you happy and be your own person. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

      Delete
    3. No, 12:44. That makes the two of us. Showing pictures like this or even videos of attempting suicide gives the wrong impression especially to impressionable youths. Iisipin nila na cool gawin ito lalo na kung magsusurvive ka tas papakita mo yung ginawa mo on social media. Share inspiring words of valuing your life instead.

      Delete
    4. 12:36, you are not the only one. There are many of you who are ignorant. This is why many people post messages like this to spread awareness. Depression can't be understand by people who does not undergo such problem such as you. It is a mental illnessthat needs medical treatment and not your ignorant understanding of DOMINO effect. Don't wait for you to have a family member who will commit suicide bcoz you were so close minded.

      Delete
    5. "Share inspiring words of valuing your life instead." THIS.

    6. Why show the picture pa pwede naman postive words na lang. Parang attetion seeker ang dating

      Delete
    7. Nope 1244. Now we’re three agree ako kay 1236.

      Delete
    8. ako rin, agree ako kay 12:36. showing pictures like this isn't really helpful to people who are suffering on the same thing. share encouraging words instead. share words of life. and di ko rin talaga gets bakit kelangan picturan yung tag sa ospital.

      Delete
    9. This post is NOT inspiring at all. And those cuts are simply pananakot just to show u are suicidal? Grow up

      Delete
    10. I didn't even bother to read yung paandar ni Gab. Not a good post pra sa kabataan

      Delete
    11. Tama ka 12.36.... hinde ito inspiring. Di kailangan ng mga ganyang pics. Ang dating tuloy eh seeking attention

      Delete
    12. Agree ako dun sa part na wag na iheadlines yung mga nag suicide. Pero dun sa mga SUCCESS STORIES, why not? For me mas dapat ishare yun to inform other people especially the younger generations na kung kaya ng iba ma overcome yun kaya din nila. So please lang di mo alam pinag daanan nila at pinag dadaanan nila.

      Delete
    13. I agree with 12:36.

    14. Agree ako na hindi dapat pinapakita dahil hindi appropriate sa mga kabataan.It is disturbing.

    1. @12:55 actually pwede kang magkaroon ng sepsis from cat scratch so yeah there's a risk na pwede kang mamatay

    2. Ikr. I didn’t even want to finish reading his post. 🙄🙄🙄 nothing against awareness on suicide prevention day. It’s just that Gab is such an attention seeker.

      Delete
    3. Some people are missing the point...the cuts weren't meant to kill himself, it's just to hurt himself.

      You should be ashamed, people, of not checking first before judging someone as attention seekers or faking it. There are indeed people suffering from mental illness. Lucky for us that we're normal and not suffering. We don't know what's going on in their minds that they cannot control.

      Bago kayo kumuda, alamin nyo muna. Google search is free. You'll learn a thing or two there.

    4. 12:55 FYI lang

      "Known as 'cat-scratch disease', the illness can cause an intense fever, pustules and - if complications develop - can even result in death."

    5. korek. kalmot nga lang. i dont think na gusto nya mgpakamatay. galit lang sya sa sarili nya or
      disappointed but not to the point na he wanted suicide. and kung gusto talaga mgpakamatay i dont think also na magagawa po pang picturan mga sugat mo

    6. May friend ako na kapag super down siya and parang sinaabi niya na wala siyang kagana gana na parang feeling daw niya paralyzed siya, nagka-cut siya sa part ng katawan niya, anywhere. Yung pain daw yung nag-aalis ng numbness niya, satisfied daw siya sa ganun. Ayaw niya daw mamatay or to kill herself, gusto lang niya kumbaga eh 'magising', ganun. Ang weird nga eh. Kaya andali satin magsalita ng ganyan kapag hindi natin talaga nararansanan.

    7. Dont underestimate cats. They can kill you and they are always plotting to do so

  5. I think lost siya ng time na yan kasi nag expect siya sa showbiz. Bihira lang maging successful ang anak ng celebrity. Wala silang natural charm while yung mga parents nag tagal kasi hindi sila kamag anak ng kung sino man para magtagal, talaga sinupportahan ng fans sila. Si KC nga ang isang celebrity kid na sobrang taas ng expectation pero hindi niya naabot ang level of success ng contemporary niya.

    2. Hija, sa Makati Medi, nilalagyan talaga ng fall risk ang pasyente kapag may tendency na mahulog sa hospital bed para alam ng staff na dapat laging nakataas ang rail guards. I should know kasi ilang beses na ako nilagyan nyan sa ER ng Makati Med. For prevention purposes yan.

  8. Mental health problems are on the rise especially to the teens nowadays. I am troubled. One cause is vaccination which hasn’t done any safety studies at all. Truth be told. They were trying to eradicate diseases which could give life long immunity. Vaccines were never safe. Auto immune disease are caused by vaccines as well and they are on the rise as well. We believed so much in our doctors they to have been lied about the efficacy and dangers of vaccines. #Godblessourchildren

    1. Let's be careful suggesting that vaccination can cause mental health diseases, lalo na if there's no proven studies.

    2. is that an opinion or may case studies ka to support your comment?

    3. I maybe wrong but i think social media does have a big part kung bakit tumataas ang rate ng depression world wide. We live in a society where we constantly seek approval/likes not only from people close to us but even from people we don't know. We can't help compare our lives Nagiging medium din siya for bullying. And if these issues are not addressed /resolved at very young age, dala-dala mo siya hanggang pagtanda mo.

    4. Bat may naligae na antivaxx dito? Hahahaha

    5. OMG. Antivaxx in the house!

      Stop this unless may proof kayo. mas marami pa rin diseases na na-eradicate at na-prevent because of vaccines.

    6. Fast foods cause depression... i have no proof tho.

    7. It's not the vaccine, it's social media

      Delete
    8. Not an antivaxx at all! I have vaccine injured kids. All of them got all the vaccines. Seizures, autism, allergic reaction to nuts, pollen, eczema to name a few of our life long struggles. One healthy classmate of my kid just had a seizure in school out of nowhere. Another had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at a very young age. Another friend’s son was diagnosed with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis. That started my journey to know why those healthy kids were ill. I came across The HighWire with Del Bigtree on fb. There’s another fb group Vaccinations Re-Education Discussion forum. You can watch Vaxxed. You can search The Truth About Vaccines series; Trace Amounts: Ethyl Mercury; Stanley Plotkins Deposition on YouTube. And there are more resources should you want to know more. Curiosity made me research and I think it’s Divine Intervention. Unless you know someone you love gets injured you will not search for the truth. I have nothing to gain. Just trying to share what I know. God bless you all in your journey.

    9. What a very irresponsible comment, 1:18. There are far more evidence on the instances of vaccines preventing illnesses, and even death, than there are instances of them doing harm to people. You probably read a short article and considered yourself an expert. Stop spreading misinformation. Now yan ang kailangan ng vaccine — against people na feeling expert.

      Delete
    10. dear 1:18 i havent read any studies about vaccines causing mental illness

      you what’s the big factor of mental illness?
      ENVIRONMENT
      Social media, dysfunctional family, failed relationships, Hollywood movies na nagppromote ng mga lies that people get insecure and feel they are less of a person

      few years back, hindi pa ganito kalala

    12. Excuse me. Please do more research before making anti vaccination claims. You have no idea how many lives have been SAVED because of vaccination. And suicide prevention and awareness ang topic here! Reading comprehension and empathy naman. Please Lang.

  10. Wala akong sympathy sa mga ganyan kc hindi cla marunong magpasalamat sa kung ano ang meron cla! If you feel suicidal or depressed just look around you, ang daming May sakit na gusto pa mabuhay sana pero tinaningan na, mga tao na sobrang hirap walang pagkain or roof over their heads, walang pamilya, walang support system, as in walang wala pero they still manage to stand and strive harder to live another day hoping and praying that they would still be granted another day to continue living. Tignan nyo paligid nyo At tignan nyo ang buhay nyo kung Anong meron ka na wala cla. Pano nyo pa makukuha ma-depress or maging suicidal kung makikita ang mga mahihirap sa paligid nyo na nakakatawa pa sa kabila ng kahirapan

    1. This could help in his healing. He accepted the fact that he is self destructive at one time, which is a big sign of depression. Relatives and friends of those showing the same symptoms should be aware and be ready to help before it's too late.

      Delete
    2. 12:47 but I dont think those accounts were from other people, that was his own narrative. Ang side ng people who were involved with him at one point ay they caused them so much pain and misery through abuse and instability. It also doesn't seem like he is in contact with those who used to be connected to him. They cut him off of their lives. It seems like hindi ito typical na depression but NPD.

      Delete
  14. agree ako kay 1:47
    tayo kasing mga ASAIN, we don’t believe in mental illness, even though it is proven na it’s real. it’s a taboo to talk about mental ilness, iniisip agad natin baliw may diperensya, may mali, or missing god in your life.
    Minsan kasi it comes inside our own house/family. sila minsan yung nagtitrigger ng depression/mental issue. Parents mostly our number one sa mga ganyan. if di nasunod masama ka na or wala ka na pangarap in life. True naman na you need GOD in life but you also need a good support system to achieve healthy state of mind. kung puro nega kasi galing sa sarili natin family it really thus affect someone’s mentality and way of thinking. Pinoys parents (parents in particular) need to stop pushing things and lamenting their kids dreams and mentality. They should be supporting, understanding and listening to their children as well as they want as to listen to them. SUICIDE is a big sin in the bible i know that and i believe that god is the only one who can take your life, but suicidal people are lost they need support and we need to understand their situation too hindi lang dapat tayo maging judgemental. We All take different path in life and we all have different coping mechanism so don’t judge but be compassionate and understanding

  18. I have bipolar disorder and take meds for it. Prior to my diagnosis I have made attempts as well. Gab be a good person and do not post pix of evidence of your self harm. Alam mo at alam natin na di yan nakakatulong sa mga gaya natin may mental health disorder bagkus mas nakakatrigger pa. Be part od the solution not the problem.

  21. I dunno about all of this tbh. I'm very much aware na self harm is a negative coping mechanism for release, "to take the edge off" ika nga. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even though the short answer is everybody who self harms regardless of motivation needs help... people who tend do resort to self harm because of depression/suicide ideation are very protective/secretive of the fact na they do this. Thus ang cuts nasa inner thighs, upper arms, and if they do cut sa forearms and wrists, lagi sila naka long sleeves. They do everything in their power to keep the cuts hidden, unless they are fully recovered from their issues and decide to come out to the world, so usually people find out na self harmer sila dahil sa peklat or by accident. I find it hard to imagine an individual with major depressive, anxiety, or eating d/o to take pictures of their fresh cuts...although this behavior may not be surprising sa mga tao na indeed may mental d/o pero completely different category, meaning those who could have manipulative, fear of abandonment, at unstable tendencies (e.g. mga taong nagkacutting parties, nagpopost ng fresh cuts sa socmed, people who use self harm as a threat to keep people around, etc.)...I just can't get it off my mind that he was reported to be abusive before...to be difficult with people around him...it makes me think that he only turned the abuse inward when nobody else around him is left to be abused. It makes me uncomfortable that someone who would take photos of their self harm almost right after the fact so that it could be posted on social media one day is taking over the narrative sa suicide ideation.
