This is a post written for no other reason than the belief that the TRUTH SETS US FREE. It’s an unfair world when an 11 year old feels he needs to be the protector & guardian of secrets for his mama… someone no longer in our lives had told bimb that if our endorsements knew the extent of his mama’s health worries, she’d lose her contracts. At that time we had no definitive prognosis BUT i know many of you, my followers are in the medical field & all pictures in the video i edited are from August to December 2018. It’s Christmas, i pray you’ll be kind. i did this because i don’t want those working in KCAP, our personal staff, and my siblings & my sons to be burdened by what is primarily my battle. Trust me when i say thanks to my team of doctors the bad days are fewer, but unfortunately this is a progressive illness. I shall emphasize God blessed us that i had an early diagnosis, others aren’t as fortunate and only know what’s wrong when organs have irreversible damage. All my organs are still okay. But the last picture with no hives but with the severe flush in my face states volumes for people familiar with autoimmune disease. What has changed in me is that i’ve stopped being angry that this had to happen because i am thankful it isn’t rheumatoid arthritis which i would never have survived. My doctors have reassured me for as long as i am obedient about taking all my medication, religious about not exceeding my allowed work hours, and choosing our shoot locations carefully i can still look forward to a fulfilling life. To quote Charles Dickens “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…” I choose to see 2018 as the year i defined who i am & what i’m made of. Because through it all, my heart still found a way to say- i trust You, i love You, i am grateful to You, my Lord & Savior. Merry Christmas & God bless you all. 💛

“It’s an unfair world when an 11 year old feels he needs to be the protector & guardian of secrets for his mama. Someone no longer in our lives had told Bimb that if our endorsements knew the extent of his mama’s health worries, she’d lose her contracts,” Aquino wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

Aquino claimed the post was written “for no other reason than the belief that TRUTH SETS US FREE.”

The Queen of All Media shared this happened when they still did not have a definitive prognosis of her autoimmune disease.

She explained, “I did this because i don’t want those working in KCAP, our personal staff, and my siblings & my sons to be burdened by what is primarily my battle.”

Regardless of her health condition, Aquino remained positive and said: “I shall emphasize God blessed us that i had an early diagnosis.”

“Others aren’t as fortunate and only know what’s wrong when organs have irreversible damage. All my organs are still okay,” she added.

She said her doctors had reassured her that as long as she takes her medication, not exceed her allowed work hours and carefully choose her shoot locations for endorsements, she could still “look forward to a fulfilling life.”

Aquino ended her post by saying, “I choose to see 2018 as the year i defined who I am & what I’m made of. Because through it all, my heart still found a way to say- i trust You, i love You, i am grateful to You, my Lord & Savior.”

Aquino revealed in October 2018 that she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

In a previous Instagram post, she explained this condition by saying “the immune system mistakes part of your body — like your joints or skin — as foreign.”
