Selma Blair (46) wurde in den Neunzigern durch den Film „Eiskalte Engel“ zum Superstar. Mittlerweile ist sie 46 Jahre alt und wie sie nun via Instagram bekanntgab, ist sie schwer krank. Selma Blair leidet an Multipler Sklerose. 

Zum ersten Mal spricht Selma Blair über ihre schwere Erkrankung in der Öffentlichkeit. In dem langen und sehr emotionalen Instagram-Post erklärt die Schauspielerin, dass sie die Diagnose im August 2018 erhielt und seitdem viel Unterstützung von ihren Freunden bekam. Vor allem von ihren guten Freundinnen Jaime King (39) und Sarah Michelle Gellar (41).

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.

„Ich bin behindert. Ich falle manchmal. Ich lasse Sachen fallen. Mein Gedächtnis ist nebelig. Aber wir machen es. Und ich lache und ich weiß nicht genau, was ich genau machen werde, aber ich werde mein Bestes geben.“, schreibt Selma Blair auf Instagram. 

Die Schauspielerin vermutet, dass sie die Krankheit schon seit 15 Jahren hat. So lange hat sie schon die Symptome. Doch sie wurde von vielen nicht ernst genommen, wie sie in dem Post erklärt. 

Ab 2019 wird Selma Blair in der Netflix-Serie „Another Life“ zu sehen sein. Trotz ihrer schweren Krankheit konnte sie dank der Produzenten und des gesamten Teams in der Serie mitwirken.
