As shared by a good friend working at the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation).


“With Ms U Catriona Gray, her counsel, Chief Vic Lorenzo, of NBI CCD, NBI Deputy Director De Guzman, and Atty. De Castro from NBI’s Investigation Services

“Mga kapatid, iwas muna sa mga demeaning, humiliating and libelous posts about Ms U surrounding her ex bf’s cryptic posts.


“And if u encountered a nude pic of hers circulating on social media, kindly not share it even if it is digitally altered. She just filed multiple cybel libel complaints against countless people.

“Balagoong na naman cybercrime division.”

Cliche as it may sound, so, think before you click.


MANY things are being unearthed in this time of Pandemic.

Singer and composer Ice Seguerra-Diño shared in her Facebook account that she recently embraced Buddhism to address the many things he’s been experiencing in his life.

But before that…


“I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and anxiety back in 2004. During that time, wala pa halos discussions about mental health. I struggled for months because I didn’t know what was happening to me. Hindi na ako nakakakain, nakakatulog. I was constantly anxious and I felt like I was going crazy because I couldn’t understand what was happening to me. My good friend, Gia, who was studying to be a psychotherapist at that time advised me to seek professional help. So I did.

“I remember going inside Dr. Luspo’s office. Unsure of what’s gonna happen kasi first time ko magpatingin sa psychiatrist. Pero nung na meet ko na siya, magaan loob ko sa kanya. Very warm and I felt like I could just tell her everything.


“I stopped going to Dr. Luspo after a few sessions because I thought kakayanin ko nang walang gamot. For more than 15 years, I lived with my depression and anxiety. Since I am very introspective, I was able to handle my moods. What I didn’t know is that it’s taking a toll on my physical health na rin pala.

“Nitong 2018, I’ve been having really bad episodes. Nagkaroon din ako ng migraine. I went to the doctor to have my heart and brain checked. Wala naman daw problema. Sabi ng neurologist ko when I told her I have anxiety and depression, na baka lahat nang nararamdaman ko ay dahil dun.

“So I went back to Dr. Luspo, after a looooong time. And this time, I kept up with my appointments and drank my meds religiously. True enough, my migraines stopped and even my asthma attacks have lessened.


“I still have my episodes. And I will still have these bouts with my disorder in the future. Pero tanggap ko na yun. I am committed to taking better care of my mental health (hence pagpalit ng FB account). I started with my buddhism journey which I have been putting off for a long time, consciously just ridding myself of the negative conditions that can affect me.

“I have a supportive doctor, an awesome family, small group of friends, a great daughter and a wife who loves, understands and selflessly goes through things with me when I have these depressive episodes.

“It’s a journey but I have my support group rallying with me. No man is an island. If you need help, don’t be afraid or ashamed to ask for it.”

What keeps me reading and sharing this aetist’s post is that it has been inspiring a d aspiring for a lot of netizens going through the same experiences. (30)
