Nadine Lustre Undergoing Depression. Is It Because James Reid Won't Woo Her In Real Life?

NADINE LUSTRE’S fans got worried when she admitted in her social media account that she’s currently undergoing depression.

“I was feeling depressed, basta personal. It’s not with my career. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t know who I am anymore. I constantly feel like I’m on the verge of breaking down. I feel like my mind is going crazy, and if my mind is an ocean, my thoughts are a tsunami. I can’t sleep, I can’t concentrate, I can’t even think straight. I am a mess. I’m coming apart at the seams and it scares me.”

She has since erased her post but she admits the role of Leah that she plays in the hit soap “On the Wings of Love” or OTWOL has contributed to her feelings of depression. “Hindi ko alam kung dahil ba kay Leah kaya ako nagkakaganoon, o dahil ba talaga sa issues ko in my personal life kaya na-pull off ‘yung pagiging ganoon niya. Since every other day kami nagsu-shoot, so parang nadadala ko siya at home. I can’t really disconnect with my character. There’s really no time to release kasi work lang nang work talaga.”

Some folks are wondering why she’s feeling depressed when a lot of young stars envy her for the success of her team up with James Reid. Nadine quickly qualifies that she remains thankful because her career is doing great. “I’m really thankful kasi this is a blessing. Everything about it is a blessing. Parang two years ago, I wish na mangyari ‘to sa akin. So ngayon it is happening, so I’m just really thankful.”

Could the source of her depression be the fact that her hunky ka-love team does not really seem to be interested in her romantically and has no intentions of wooing her at all? But James just gave her a special gift when she celebrated her 22nd birthday on October 31. This is a cute puppy that they call Clarky Boy, from the name of James’ character in OTWOL. “The puppy helped a lot para mapasaya ako,” says Nadine. “Actually, happy kaming lahat sa cast ng OTWOL kasi we’ve been informed na dahil sa consistently high ratings ng show, extended kami hanggang January. Kaya forget na lang ang problema, magpasalamat na lang sa blessings na dumarating.”
Well, that’s the spirit, Nadine!
