Jayson Gainza went through a tough time
Kapuso comedian Jayson Gainza opened up about his mental health and the challenging time he went through.
Even from the time he had his first TV appearance through the Kapamilya reality show Pinoy Big Brother, viewers already knew that Jayson is a comic. Following that stint, he indeed had several projects showcasing how funny he is.
However, despite his ability to make other people laugh, Jayson went through a phase in which he cried a lot. In a recent interview, based on the article in Abante, the comedian’s mental health was challenged.
“Kapag gabi, takot na takot ako, kasi alam kong maggagabi, sabi ko, ‘hindi na naman ako makakatulog kasi ang dami kong iniisip’. Minsan alas-sais na, dinadaya ko na ang sarili ko kasi nga gigising na ‘yung asawa ko, maghahatid ng anak. Kunwari tulog ako, pero ang tulog ko pa lang alas-otso ng umaga, ‘yung talagang pagod na pagod na ang utak ko kaiisip,” Jayson Gainza shared.
At that time, he kept on thinking about what could be his next project or if he is still relevant. The comedian added that he was thinking ahead of what he is supposed to think and so it led to d=pression.
There were also times when he doubted himself that he is not good enough and he can’t do certain things. It also reached to the point when he did not want to talk to his family.
“Noong mga time na sa kuwarto na ako kumakain, sabi ko ‘Ma, iakyat mo na lang ako ng pagkain sa itaas. Ayaw ko talaga. Kahit ‘yung anak ko, hindi ko nakakausap ‘yung anak ko, gusto ko nasa kuwarto lang, ayaw kong lumabas,” he said.
While working at that time, his co-stars would talk to him but what they were saying would just pass him.
One time, he called his wife while he was driving. Jayson shared that he was crying at that time. “Sabi ko ‘Mahal hindi ko alam kung ano ang nangyayari.’ Sabi niya ‘Hala, anong nangyayari sa ‘yo? Itigil mo ang sasakyan!’ Parang takot akong mag-drive,” the comedian shared.
Eventually, Jayson Gainza consulted a psychiatrist and he was advised to continue his therapy. He was also told that he should have someone who he can talk to always.
