    18 Frustrating Things Filipinos With Depression Are Tired Of Hearing

    "Kulang ka lang sa dasal."

    1. "Gawa-gawa mo lang 'yan."

    Cinemanila

    First of all, scientific evidence has shown that folks afflicted with clinical depression suffer from brain abnormalities, like a smaller hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls emotions and learning. Hindi siya imagination lang.

    2. "Get over it!"

    Star Cinema

    Sakit ang depression, so hindi basta-basta mawawala kapag hindi kumonsulta sa doktor. Sinasabi mo rin ba 'yan sa mga taong may ibang sakit, tulad nang cancer o diabetes?

    3. "Mind over matter lang 'yan."

    4. "Ano ba kasing problema mo?"

    Actually, matagal ko na ring hinahanapan nang sagot 'yan.

    6. "Hindi ka kasi nagsisimba."

    Kahit yung mga relihiyoso, puwedeng magka-depression. In fact, may mga santo na may ganitong sakit, tulad nina St. Ignatius de Loyola at St. Augustine.

    7. "Nagda-drama ka na naman."

    ABS-CBN

    Sorry, but I can't help how I feel.

    8. "Think positive!"

    9. "Wala kang karapatang malungkot. Mas maraming less fortunate."

    10. "Kung gusto mong maging masaya, magiging masaya ka."

    Sana ganun lang kadali yun.

    11. "Nireregla ka ba?"

    'Di naman yata connected yun.

    12. "Try mong ngumiti."

    13. "Nakaka-relate ako. Nalungkot din ako last week but naka-recover agad ako."

    YouTube: GMA Network / Via youtube.com

    Magkaiba yung normal na lungkot kesa sa depression. Saying it's the same makes us feel belittled.

    14. "Kumain ka kasi nang tama!"

    Depression affects my diet, so it might help if we eat comfort food. Libre mo ko?

    15. "Katamaran lang 'yan."

    Star Cinema

    Sorry if wala kaming energy na sumama sa gimik. Just leave us be muna.

    16. "Karma mo yata 'yan e. May nagawa ka bang kasalanan?"

    Star Cinema

    Siguro nga. But guilt-tripping me is not helping.

    17. "Kailangan mo lang ng jowa."

    Viva Films

    18. "Sinasayang mo yung buhay mo."

    Viva Films

    "Walang sayang sa buhay. Lahat may gamit. Lahat may pakinabang. 'Di nga lang malinaw minsan." Thank you Ms. Jaclyn Jose. <3
