La actriz, de 46 años, reveló que el 16 de agosto le diagnosticaron la enfermedad que afecta al sistema nervioso central

La actriz Selma Blair anunció que se encuentra siendo tratada luego de haber sido diagnosticada con esclerosis múltiple.

En un post publicado el sábado en su cuenta de Instagram, Blair, de 46 años, reveló que el 16 de agosto le diagnosticaron la enfermedad que afecta al sistema nervioso central.

Blair dice que está luchando con los efectos de la enfermedad en ella: “Estoy discapacitada. Me caigo a veces. Dejo caer las cosas. Mi memoria está nublada. Y mi lado izquierdo está pidiendo direcciones de un GPS descompuesto“.

Sin embargo, agrega que gracias al apoyo del elenco y el equipo de un programa de Netflix que está filmando, así como a sus amigos y familiares, “lo estamos haciendo“. Y me río y no sé exactamente qué haré precisamente, pero haré lo mejor que pueda “.

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis . I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member… thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. 🖤 my instagram family… you know who you are.
