Selma Blair shared an emotional look at what it's really like to live with multiple sclerosis. On Sunday night, the actress posted a photo of herself cuddling a stuffed bear and included a lengthy caption outlining the struggles she's faced because of the disease. "There is a truth with neurogedenerative brain disease. It is uncomfortable. It is a stadium of uncontrollable anxiety at times. Going out, being sociable holds a heavy price. My brain is on fire," she wrote. Selma was diagnosed with MS in October, and she's been candid about the fact that it's a battle.
The Cruel Intentions star, who's mom to 7-year-old Arthur Saint Bleick, continued with an optimistic sentiment, saying, "I have a full week ahead with mothering and appointments and things to look forward to. But like many of us, I am praying. Soaking in love where I can. It's not easy. That's OK." Selma included the hashtags #stillanactress and #willmakeitwork.
She also got real about the fact that self-care can be a serious mood booster — for Selma, that's her new blond bob haircut. She gave a shout-out to her colourist and said, "I can't thank you enough for the morale boost of blonde." Read Selma's heartfelt post in full above.
