Meryll Soriano uploaded a brave, honest, and inspiring new episode of her YouTube vlog.
KAMI learned that the new vlog episode shows Meryll discussing the differences between her first and second pregnancies.
According to Meryll, her first pregnancy in 2007 was extremely difficult as she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, she was undergoing rehabilitation from drug use, and she had a difficult relationship with the baby’s father, Bernard Palanca.
"It was also that year that I was diagnosed with bipolar depression, before po ako nanganak niyan.
"Can you imagine yung journey ko na chaos? Kasi hindi ko pa naman kilala yung bipolar at that time. Kailangan ko pa i-assess yung sarili ko.
"But, wala rin akong time nun because that was also the year that I started my sobriety from drug use.
"In short, I was all over the place. Tapos hindi maganda yung relationship status ko at that time. Nakikilala ko pa lang sarili ko.
"May mga desisyon ako na dahil pala sa aking pagiging bipolar disorder. Akala ko risk-taker lang ako. But, meron pala akong condition.
"So, yun nga, hindi ko pa kilala yung sarili ko with this bipolar disorder thing, and in denial po ako noon. Ang dami kong gusto kong gawin.
"Tapos I was in a terrible place with my relationships—family, partner, friends—kaya it was really a hard moment in my life…
"Dun ako nagkaroon ng postpartum depression. Grabe yung hormonal changes and talagang I was in a terrible place,” Meryll revealed.
As for her second pregnancy in 2020, Meryll was in a much better place as her relationship with the baby’s father, Joem Bascon, was stable and nurturing.
"This time around siguro, I have Joem. Laking tulong niya sa aking personal needs as a person, as his partner, and then also, yung needs ng baby. So, talagang natutulungan niya ako.
"And also, I'm ready for this baby. Unlike noon with Eli, it wasn't planned. And I was going through so much at that time kaya na-experience ko yung postpartum depression,” she explained.
