Shaina Magdayao currently topbills ABS-CBN’s afternoon soap “The Better Half”. The show, now on its Book 2, has gained quite a good following for its heavy suspense-drama scenes and the unique plot twists.
The Kapamilya actress portrays the role of ‘Camille Villalobos’, and according to her, internalization and portrayal of the said character role takes a lot of energy on her part. Long taping hours makes her condition flare-up and she suffers from different symptoms such as her lips suddenly swelling for hours.
“Sa sobrang nadadala, pati immune system ko inabot na. Kasi, stressed talaga ‘yung katawan namin, sa totoong buhay. Kung ano-anong tumutubo at namamaga sa mukha ko. And first time siyang nangyayari.”
This former child star has been a permanent presence on Philippine television for years now.
A Star Magic talent through and through, Shaina is one of the former child star wonders who has successfully transitioned into showbiz over the years. She keeps busy with a lot of work engagements, shows, and projects even until now, when newbie stars come and go.
It would be safe to say she’s got showbiz embedded in her system.
This could also be for this very reason that she was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism a couple of years ago. She also said to suffer from urticaria and angioedema.
“Sakit siya ng nagme-menopause. Siguro kasi, I started working at a very young age. Walang enough tulog, puro puyat. Tapos nung January, namamaga ‘yung lips ko. So, meron akong angioedema and urticarial.
So, lahat ng espeyalista, ‘yung immunologist, nagpa-check-up na ako kasi hindi namin alam kung ano ang nangyayari. Eh at that time, nagti-taping kami sa Baguio and hindi nila ako mapababa ng Manila kahit na ini-injection-an ako ng pampatulog, ng Benadryl, ng anti-histamine.”
“Kasi nga naman, sobrang pagod ko talaga sa show na ‘to. Sobra kasi yung puyat, emotionally draining, physically draining. So, I guess, kaya lumabas ‘yung mga sakit."
She added that they already sought help from different specialists to address her needs and ascertain her health status.
“So, I had to see specialists—endocrinologist for my thyroid and immunologist for my immune system kasi nga bumabagsak siya. And it’s not normal na may namamaga, namamaga ‘yung mata mo, namamaga ‘yung cheeks mo. It’s not normal na namamaga lang ‘yung sistema mo and everything.”
Shaina is just thankful though, how her co-workers and everyone around her have been very supportive and encouraging. She says it helps lessen the stress, and makes all the workload seem light.
