"I’m directly quoting my physician: ‘The results are consistent with Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria; likely autoimmune in view of the positive thyroid autoantibodies.’ Since childhood, i’ve known i was severely allergic to several types of medication.
"Environmental allergens started triggering what i thought was just allergic rhinitis, sore throat, and skin asthma in my late 20s.
"I was told during my 2015 medical evaluation to have my thyroid autoantibodies closely monitored. Every year since then the count continued to rise, and this September they reached a critical level.
"I’m 100% aware that millions of Filipinos work here & all over the world in the medical field; there’s research online to explain the significance of my disclosure.
"I do not have the same right to privacy as others because my work is dependent on the public’s patronage & goodwill, that’s why i chose to be upfront rather than subject myself & my family to misinformed speculation.
"Unless there’s something i can share to raise awareness on how to deal with & treat autoimmune disorders for the many others who suffer from them, this is the last i’d like to post about my condition.
"This ailment shouldn’t confine or define me, but’s a valid, medically confirmed diagnosis about my physical limitations. There’s a quote i find inspiring, ‘I will show you that surviving can be beautiful.’ #laban." – EAS
