Selma Blair has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The 46-year-old actress shared the news with her followers on Instagram on Saturday, revealing in an emotional post that she was diagnosed in August, but "have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least."
Blair said she decided to announce her diagnosis after a wardrobe fitting for her new Netflix show, Another Life, as costume designer Allisa Swanson "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," she wrote.
"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 from precisely but I will do my best," Blair said.
The Cruel Intentions star continued, explaining that she was diagnosed at 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 16. She thanked her friends for their support, including Jaime King, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., Tara Subkoff and Noah Newman along with Another Life executive producer Noreen Halpern.
