“Belive me, I’m not healthy enough for politics,” declared online celebrity Kris Aquino on her latest Instagram post. She claimed to be suffering from severe allergies and has been showing symptoms of having thyroiditis and lupus.
In another, she quoted a song by American singer-actress Jennifer Lopez: “The strength to stand alone/ The power of not knowing and letting go/ I guess I found my way/ It’s simple when it’s right/ Feeling lucky just to be here tonight/ And happy just to be me and be alive.”
She then advised everyone to “please save this post and use againts her if she seek political office as proof. (You can say that) walang isang salita si Kris.”
Kris made a detailed commentary on her physical condition. She said she has the “most dangerous of all conditions because of anaphylaxis meaning magsasara ang air passages and hindi na makakahinga.” She also has hypertension, but is mostly “under control except the week before the first three days of menstrual period, as well as migraines, which has become “problematic to treat because of NSAID allergy,” she explained.
Kris said she likewise has chronic spontaneous urticaria and has been “taking five different histamines daily–epipen on stand by and diphenhydramine shots for when ‘nagmapa na ang hive’ and fibromyalgia.”
She is set to have “more test to determine why I have symptoms and bloodtest results seeing to confirm autoimmmine disorders SLE, a form of Lupus, and thyroiditis.”
