Judy Ann Santos visits Sharon Cuneta after admission of being depressed


Santos, who worked  with Cuneta in the 2002 movie "Magkapatid," said they have remained in constant communication in spite of  not seeing each other personally for a long time.

Santos shared that she went to mega star Cuneta at her home last Monday to ask how she is, the  day that Cuneta posted her emotional message on Facebook.

"[Binisita ko siya] para lang mangumusta, para lang makipag-kuwentuhan, gano’n naman kami," Santos said. "And ako, I’m very grateful na hanggang ngayon, na-preserve ko ‘yung friendship ko with Ate Sharon, kasi it’s something na talagang hindi mo makikita sa ibang tao."

She added that Cuneta is doing fine, and that the veteran actress is working things out to get better.

"She’s doing okay. She’s coping. She’s trying to work things out. Yes, she said naman in her post na dumaan siya sa state of depression and state of loneliness," Santos said.

In  Cuneta’s letter, she admitted she had become complacent and "let herself become fat," which she said made her feel nefgative that affected her career and her attitude towards her peers.

"I was going through a mid-life crisis, the effects of which I could never have foreseen. My reaction to it was awful; I became rebellious because I hated myself for the way I looked and the time I continued to waste by not focusing and working on bettering my own person.

"And each time I rebelled, often offending other people by being inconsiderate of their time and all else that I used to respect in and about them, I just felt worse and worse about myself. I was not ‘me.’ I hit mid-life and didn’t know how to deal with it. I was lost. And then when I got used to it, I saw what had changed around me," Cuneta said.

Santos said Cuneta  accepted the mistakes she had done, and will need the support of her friends and family to be able to get through this rough patch.
