The actress recalled her ordeal in an Instagram post she published on Tuesday: “I had a severe, vascular headache from 3 PM while taping @kristvofficial_ig, threw up 3X when I got home at 6:30 PM & when my blood pressure was taken it was 150/100. My sisters insisted I go to the ER because my symptoms were alarming. At the ER my BP was 200/110. Just a bit higher could have caused a stroke.”

She thanked her children,  sisters, brothers-in-law and President Benigno Aquino III who visited her in the hospital straight from his engagements in Cebu City.

“I need to first say THANK YOU to my sons & siblings (Pinky & Manolo, Viel & Dodo, and PNoy who went straight to the hospital from the airport after his Cebu trip),” she said.

Kris said that the incident taught her to not become a slave to her work and made her realize how much her family loves her.

“I solemnly promise to follow all their instructions, take my medication & I will never again abuse my body because I was a slave to my work. My goal now is to achieve a healthy work & life balance.”

“Last night was a scary wake up call for me & my loved ones, but it also made me realize how much my siblings & sons love & care for me. It really put my priorities in proper perspective,” Kris said.

The actress-host said that she would be “signing off” from social media and her shows until she recuperates. AJH/IDL
