Celebrities have a talent of putting on a big smile in front of the camera even if they are in pain, and Selma Blair has been doing it for quite some time.
However, back in October of 2018, the celebrity found the courage to disclose the fact that she is suffering from a condition known as multiple sclerosis, and ever since she has made sure to keep her fans updated about her well-being.
So far, we have come to know that this medical condition has caused Blair some difficulty when she tries to walk, her voice has been facing some issues as well, and she has also lost some of her eyelashes. In a recent update, Blair has now also disclosed that she is finding the condition to be rather painful, something she seems to be struggling with every day.
Discussing Her Pain
For Blair, dealing with multiple sclerosis has become a part of life, but the pain is not something she can ignore. According to a post which the celebrity made on her Instagram page, Blair discussed how simply getting up to get a glass of water in the middle of the night is a painful process, as everything, from her neck to her legs, hurts.
While her predicament is obviously very tough, she seems to have found comfort in knowing that there are others who are facing the exact same issue. She considers her struggle with multiple sclerosis as a journey, and hence she is glad that she does not have to be alone while going through it.
The most she can do is endure it with all her might, which she does by taking a deep breath. She even went as far as to call this time of her life as the most beautiful one.
Showing Her Pain
Although she is maintaining a positive attitude towards her condition, she still has some very terrible days where the going gets very tough.
Blair made another post to her Instagram after the one mentioned above, this time a video from a day earlier, whereby she showed herself walking by taking the support of a walking bike. The video also showed her son by her side.
In the caption, Blair highlighted how that day had been extremely tough for her as she had struggled to even get out of her bed. Referring to the unpredictability of life, she mentioned how her condition had a big emotional impact on her since she did not expect to be using any physical support equipment until she was very old.
About The Disease
The trouble with multiple sclerosis is that it attacks the central nervous system of an individual, thereby having a disrupting impact on the entire body. The disease is also very common, considering around 2.3 million individuals globally are suffering from it at the moment, although this figure is likely understated considering a lot of cases remained undiagnosed.
It is also a very symptomatic condition, whereby the majority experiences fatigue while pain is another major symptom of the condition.
