Selma Blair has updated fans on how she is coping with multiple sclerosis, revealing it leaves her with “uncontrollable anxiety”.
On Monday, the actor posted a photo on Instagram of herself in bed with a teddy bear alongside a lengthy caption that described the struggles of living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
“There is a truth with neurogedenerative brain disease. It is uncomfortable. It is a stadium of uncontrollable anxiety at times,” she wrote.
The Cruel Intentions star continued to explain the often overlooked realities that come with her diagnosis, including feeling alone and how challenging it is to walk around.
“Going out, being sociable holds a heavy price,” she wrote.
“We feel alone with it even though the loving support has been a god send and appreciated.
“People write me asking how I do it. I do my best. But I choke with the pain of what I have lost and what I dare hope for and how challenging it is to walk around.”
