"22/14 Tested NEGATIVE but feeling positive," the actress wrote in her post, which featured a photo of her holding a bouquet of sunflowers.
Sunshine first hinted that she was in self-isolation at home on April 5, when she marked an IG post with what seemed like a countdown. She uploaded a photo with her daughters Angelina, Samantha, and Chesca.
"Can I ask that you please include my kids and I sa prayers niyo?" she said. "Laban lang po tayo."
She would keep on posting these countdown updates for the next few weeks.
"When some things go wrong, take a moment to be thankful for the many more things that are still going right. -Anonymous"
"Stay patient and trust your journey."
"I may not see the kids but hearing and chatting over the phone with them makes me look forward to seeing and hugging these princesses of mine once again. I know I am on my way to recovery."
On April 15, Sunshine shared an emotional post, revealing she was first in denial when she tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27.
"It took a while for reality to sink in, I thought I would be asymptomatic and would probably just isolate myself for 14 days to make sure that the people at home will be safe as well. But here I am still isolated with symptoms after already taking different kinds of strong antibiotics and medicines."
She also shared that she was advised by her doctor to only leave her room when she no longer has any symptoms. She asked for prayers before taking another swab test the following day. We're happy she's recovered!
"To everyone, COVID is real!" she added. "In my 43 years of existence, I’ve had fever, the flu, and coughs, but COVID symptoms can’t be compared to what I’ve experienced before. I am still grateful and blessed that the worst is over."
