The actress surprised fans when she recently talked about her mental health on the latest episode of her show, “Iba ‘Yan.”
The revelation happened with Angel talking to the founder of Anxiety and Depression Support Group Baguio City, Ricky Ducas Jr., who was the show’s featured guest.
“‘Yun ‘yung image ko talaga sa mga tao ‘di ba, ‘yung strong woman,” Angel told Ricky. “Makakatulong ba if sabihin ko na na-diagnose din ako with depression and anxiety?”
“Yeah, pero strong woman ako, hanggang ngayon strong woman ako. I have that condition and hindi siguro alam ng tao kasi wala naman nagtatanong. Pero na-diagnose din ako nu’n, pero I’m strong. So don’t worry, kung feeling mo ay alone ka sa nararamdaman mo, marami tayo.”
She reiterated it all boils down to a person just facing their insecurities and such.
Angel continued that she could relate herself to the latter’s story, saying: “Para akong ikaw na I don’t want to bother anyone with my problems. As much as possible hindi ko bibigyan pansin ang sarili ko, na hindi pala tama ‘yun.”
