MANILA – After everything that he has been through these past couple of years, Baron Geisler admitted he is still "a work in progress."

In 2011, Geisler checked into a rehabilitation center to treat his alcohol dependency. The following year, the actor admitted he has been dealing with bipolar disorder which causes severe depression and mood swings.

Geisler said at the time that there were moments when his insecurities would still eat him up despite all the good things that have been happening in his life and career.

After more than a year, does he feel he has fully recovered?

“Not really okay but it's a work in progress,” he told ABS-CBN News on the sidelines of the Star Awards for Movies on Sunday where he was awarded as one of the Aktor ng Dekada.

Geisler said he considers himself fortunate that opportunities continue to come despite everything that has happened to him.

“I just feel blessed na nakasama ako sa mga magagaling na artista na nanalo din… Marami [akong projects] pero personal projects na ‘to,” he said.

When asked about his personal life, Geisler said: “I'm going to be like a girl. I'll say i'll take things slow and we'll see.”

“I've been through a lot. I just want to concentrate on my career. It's all up to God,” he added.
