I wanted to tire myself para pag-uwi ko tulog na lang, hindi ko na maisip iyong pagkamatay ng boyfriend ko, ng ex-boyfriend ko. Ang gusto ko lang mapagod. Hindi pa talaga ako nakapag-rest para umiyak. Up to this day” she said.
“I tried to leave iyong part ng kay Rico behind when I got married kasi siyempre I had to focus on my husband and my children, but it was always there. Pagka-birthday, nandiyan na naman ako. And kahit papaano naman, naging supportive ‘yong ex-husband ko,” Claudine added.
