Selma Blair, escleorisis múltiple

La actriz Selma Blair, conocida por papeles en cintas como Juegos Sexuales, La Cosa Más Dulce y Hellboy, reveló este fin de semana que padece de esclerosis múltiple.

La enfermedad consiste en la degradación de la cubierta protectora de los nervios, lo que termina en la interrupción de comunicación entre el cerebro y el cuerpo. Es progresiva e incurable. 

Blair, de 46 años, anunció las noticias a través de su cuenta de Instagram, donde especificó que recibió la noticia el 16 de agosto, luego de realizarse una resonancia magnética y mostrársela a un doctor amigo.

En una larga declaración, Blair explicó que es gracias a la gratitud que siente de su círculo más cercano que decidió compartir las noticias con su familia de Instagram. Menciona a los compañeros y sobre todo a la vestuarista de su actual show para Netflix, Harper Glass, al igual que a actores colegas como Jaime King, Sarah Michelle Gellar y Freddie Prinze Junior.

Estoy discapacitada. A veces me caigo, las cosas se me caen y mi memoria es borrosa, pero lo estamos logrando. No sé exactamente qué es lo que tengo que hacer, pero haré lo mejor (...) Probablemente he tenido esta enfermedad incurable desde hace 15 años. Estoy aliviada de al menos saber”, explicó en la declaración de la imagen que dejamos abajo.

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she 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 . I am in an exacerbation. 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 precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @noah.d.newman . My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member... thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me , dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. 🖤 my instagram family... you know who you are.
