Baron Geisler admits struggling with depression amid pandemic ‘pero laban lang’

Baron Geisler admitted that depression is taking a toll on him during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In a Pilipino Star Ngayon report, the 37-year-old actor shared that he is going through a tough time over being away from his loved ones since the enhanced community quarantine has been implemented in Metro Manila.

Baron currently stays alone at a condominium unit in Quezon City while his wife and child are in Cebu. 

“Medyo aminado ako sa ngayon na tinatamaan talaga ako ng depression dahil nami-miss ko ‘yung anak ko. Nami-miss ko ‘yung asawa ko,” he shared. 

He added, “Mag-isa lang ako sa Quezon City pero laban lang. Kailangan nating maging matibay. Kailangan nating lumaban kasi mababaliw ka lang eh, nakakabaliw lang itong sitwasyon natin.”

Baron said he is thankful for the support and care from people who have been helping him deal with the challenging situation. 

“Natutuwa naman ako at nagpapasalamat na mayroong Diyos at nakakausap ko rin ‘yung pamilya ko araw-araw at nando’n ‘yung suporta. Pero may hangganan ang kalakasan minsan ng tao, bumibigay din. Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga kapatid ko, sobrang bait nila. Grabe din ‘yung suporta,” he said. 

“Nagulat nga ako na may nagpadala ng pagkain, ng groceries na hindi ko in-expect na may mga taong ganyan na hindi magpapakilala. Sana magpakilala kayo para mapasalamatan ko kayo ng tama,” he added. 

Baron also turned emotional as he talked about how he misses his daughter so much. 

“Sana magkaroon ng chartered (flight) kaysa buksan ‘yung mall. Sana buksan din pati airport. Gusto ko nang makita ang anak ko. Kung ikaw ba naman ilang buwan kang mag-isa. Sasabihin ng mga tao, I’m drunk, ganito-ganyan, hindi eh. Ito ang nangyayari talaga.”

The actor also shared how everyone can cope with the crisis.

“Siguro magmahalan na lang, pero may hope. Nariyan ang pagdadasal, nandiyan ang Diyos anytime.”
