On her official Instagram account, Lolit Solis shared on June 30 that she does not feel right most of the time yet chose not to think about it.
The veteran columnist thought that since she is already 75 years old, her physical being is already weakening.
“Alam mo Salve siguro nga dahil old na ako iba na rin ang feeling ko physically.”
According to her, she experiences fatigue even though she did not perform any tasks, and sometimes she cannot sleep at night due to discomfort.
“There are times na parang pagod na pagod ako without doing anything, meron naman hindi ako makatulog dahil uncomfortable ang katawan ko. Lately nga parang may napi feel akong weakness kaya ayoko muna na madalas nasa labas.”
She then blamed herself for neglecting physical pain she’d been experiencing recently.
“Pasaway din kasi ako, kahit may nararamdaman ako I don’t listen to my body. Eh siyempre iba na ngayon dahil 75 na ako. Pag naging pasaway ako rin mahihirapan.
“Iyon bang maiinis ka kung bakit buhay ka nga pero hirap ka naman huminga, masakit naman katawan mo.”
With this, she believes that people should know when to rest, especially when their body needs it. She also advised people to consult the doctor and know what’s causing the pain.
“Kaya dapat talaga ikaw mismo makinig sa katawan mo, huwag ipilit pag medyo hindi kaya. Pahinga pag feeling pagod, patingin agad sa doktor para malaman kung ano ang nangyayari sa katawan mo.
“Health is wealth, at masarap comfortable ka at walang sakit sa katawan.”

Solis is a veteran talk show host, entertainment columnist, and talent manager. She is known for her frank comments and intriguing blind items involving showbiz personalities.
Solis got involved in the 1994 Manila Film Festival fiasco, where she orchestrated to change the results of the Best Actor and Actress of that year.
The presenters announced that Gabby Concepcion and Ruffa Gutierrez were the winners, however, the tabulators told then-Mayor Alfredo Lim that the real winners were Edu Manzano and Aiko Melendez. The same night, Lim went up stage to announce the real winners.
Solis eventually owned up her mistake and admitted that she was the mastermind of the scandal.
In 2021, in an interview with Ogie Diaz, Solis said that she did it to save the career of Gabby Concepcion, her talent.
“That time, akala ko talaga ang magiging winner si Richard Gomez. Siyempre karibal ni Gabby eh. Di ko alam, si Edu Manzano pala ang mananalo dapat. Sabi ko, ‘ay hindi pwedeng Manalo si Richard, lalong babagsak si Gabby. So naisip kong siya dapat maging Best Actor,” she said.
“Pero kung alam ko si Edu mananalo ‘nun na di naman talagang direk na karibal ni Gabby, baka nagdalawang isip ako.” she added.
Last June 22 marked the 28th anniversary of the said scandal. Solis tracked back this issue and said that it is still fresh in her mind.
She sighed and said, “Twenty-eight years na yun? Parang kelan lang. Sa isip ko, parang five years ago pa lang.”
Solis regretted her mistake, but it saved her career because her talents became more loyal to her.
