Comedienne K Brosas has finally recovered from COVID-19 after 17 days of isolation, although she admitted that it badly affected her mental health.

“[Sensya] na di ako nakapag vlog about my [COVID-19] journey chos.. mahirap [siya] lalo na sa mental health at buti mild symptoms lang akey,” Brosas shared on Twitter last night, April 9.

(I am sorry I did not get to vlog about my COVID-19 journey… it was hard especially for my mental health, but I am thankful that I only had mild symptoms.)

“[Kaya] doble ingat po, isipin nyo na baka may mahawa kayo na di kakayanin tulad mo (So be extra careful, think about others you might infect, who would not be able to handle it as well as you do),” she emphasized.

While the 45-year-old comedienne noted that she only suffered from mild symptoms, she disclosed that she made a “last will” video in case things took a turn for the worse.

“[So] no hindi ko na document ang [COVID-19] journey ko, [kasi] ayaw ko lang, pero nag ‘huling habilin’ video ako, yes ganon ako ka praning at takot na kahit mild lang nangyari saken ginawa ko yon, binura ko na rin [kasi] ang sad lang,” Brosas said.

(So, no I did not get to document my COVID-19 journey, because I just did not want to, but I actually made a “last will” video. Yes, I was so paranoid and scared even though I only experienced mild symptoms, I did that, but I have already deleted it because it i I’ms just sad.)

“[Ganon] ang mental torture na dinaanan ko. [Pero] laban [lang] (That was the mental torture that I went through. But just keep on fighting),” she emphasized.

In the following tweet, Brosas reminded netizens to not be judgmental, noting that you never know what a person is going through even if you see them smiling and laughing.

“[Ang] tawag [diyan] ‘professional’ kahit napakahirap sa totoo lang, kaya kung makakapag bigay saya ka kahit papano go! [At] bumoto ng tama sa nxt election! [Bow]!” she said.

(That is what you call a “professional,” even though it is truly very hard, so if you can cheer others up, then go! And vote wisely next election! Bow!)

Her daughter Crystal has, meanwhile, celebrated her mother’s recovery via Twitter, posting yesterday: “Finally! Can’t wait to go home after ECQ bc I miss your luto [pleading face emoji] Labyu (I love you)!”

Brosas then retweeted her daughter’s post and shared that not being able to cook for her during isolation was depressing.

“[Yes] yan ang kinakalungkot ko ng sobra habang naka isolate, ang pagluto para sayo hindi lang saken at bihira na nga [kasi] busy sa work..

“[I] miss you sobra! [Pero] ok ako [kasi] safe ka at healthy! [Sana] pinagluto ka din ng jowa mo chos! [Ang importante] masaya ka at healthy. labyu!” Brosas said.

(I miss you so much! But I am okay because you are safe and healthy! I hope your partner cooks for you too! What’s important is that you are happy and healthy. I love you!)

Prior to getting infected, Brosas’ mother and sister last November contracted the novel coronavirus in Italy, where they are based.  /ra
