Actress Selma Blair Reveals She Was Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

In an Instagram post, actress Selma Blair announced that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Blair revealed she was diagnosed in August, and is facing the effects of the disease everyday. Blair, 46, said she’s had symptoms for years, and thanked her producers at her new Netflix show for being understanding. She said she hopes “to give some hope to others. And even to myself,” and encourage people to ask for help when they need it. Blair posted on her Instagram, “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.” Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that occurs when there’s a breakdown in communication between the brain and other parts of the body. Symptoms include blurred vision, and difficulty with coordination and balance.
