Frankie and Corazon have managed to ignore a lot of negative energy in their life as a couple and more to it as parents.
The two got their first child in August and that was the biggest blessing in Corazon's life. Remember she suffered from Endometriosis and so she was not sure a baby would be part of her life plans.
Through all this, her boyfriend, Frankie has held it down for her at her best and at her worst. She revealed details of their life as parents saying it may look like she is okay, but she has been through a lot. Both physically and mentally.
We celebrated World Mental Health day yesterday. A day to be there for those suffering from any mental illness and also to sensitize the importance of asking for help.
Corazon confessed getting a baby was not all easy for her.
She wrote a World Mental Health Day message
"Before this day is over I would like to share a short story. I had my baby in August, no one tells you how hard it’s going to be, it was the best moment in my life but it was also the toughest moments for me. I found myself crying for no reason, banging doors and throwing myself on the floor, every small thing would trigger me to go nuts, like if the food did not have enough salt. I had such a hard time."
Adding that she has the support of Frankie otherwise, things would have been worse.
"Frankie tried, I mean he really tried to make it easier but I was just pushing him away. One day I started driving in the middle of the night with my baby strapped on his seat. That’s when I realized I was endangering myself and my baby and I needed help. I had been embarrassed to ask for help, embarrassed to admit that I was having a hard time, it took a huge toll on me trying to deal with it alone."
Her advice on this very important day especially for the youth is simply that it is okay not to be okay and it is okay to be vulnerable and ask for help.
"I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s okay to be stressed or to have blues. Surround yourself with people who love and support you and don’t push them away, and when you feel you can’t take it anymore, it’s okay to seek help. We are just humans too. Share with me your hardest moments adjusting as moms. Let’s give one another some kind and encouraging words. Love and light to all moms"
