Selma Blair has Multiple Sclerosis
The television and film actress Selma Blair recently announced that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The diagnosis came out in August. But the actress has been facing the effects of her disease ever single day since then.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Selma Blair announced her multiple sclerosis diagnosis. She said that she had become disabled. And often fell herself or dropped things. Not just that, but her memory was foggy. And her left side was as if it is asking for directions from a broken GPS. However, Selma Blair said that she was still doing it. She did not exactly know what she will do precisely but she knew she was going to do her best.
