“What i have has no cure, but i can fight to become stronger for the people i love & the people who matter,” Aquino said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

“There are days kakayanin but I just underwent several surgical procedures and I need to build up my stamina. Ayoko nang magalit at mag self pity (I don’t want to get angry or wallow in self-pity). Lalaban ako (I will fight), to improve my outlook and my quality of life,” she added.

9 out of 10 people with an autoimmune disease is a woman. i am not a doctor, hindi rin po ako expert- but i have been diagnosed with several. If you google, “the early symptoms of many autoimmune diseases are very similar such as: fatigue, achy muscles etc…” (source healthline.com) Posted this for awareness regardless of possible bashing kasi at this point, care ko. It was a 25 to 30 minute walk from the check in counter to our Terminal 2 Gate. There are days kakayanin but i just underwent several surgical procedures and i need to build up my stamina. Ayoko nang magalit at mag self pity. Lalaban ako, to improve my outlook and my quality of life.What i have has no cure, but i can fight to become stronger for the people i love & the people who matter.Flying home. Thank you @singaporeair for the kind assistance and Adam for being compassionate. God bless you all. #laban❤️ Kris
