AceShowbiz - Selma Blair has given fans an update on her ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis. Taking to Instagram on Thursday, July 18, the "Cruel Intention" star admitted that her condition had worsened amid her battle with the disease, but stressed that it would not let her give up to recover and get back to what she loves to do, horseback riding.
Alongside a throwback photo of her kissing a white horse, Selma wrote, "After I gave birth and felt half dead all the time, after the rage and the tears, after my heart exploded with caring and understanding, before any diagnosis, I searched for this horse." The actress added that she and the animal formed a special bond, before her autoimmune disease made horseback riding impossible.
Vowing to jump on the animal's back again despite her worsening condition, she continued writing in the caption, "We only had a short time before I couldn't even get to him or stay on. But he has come so far. And even though I may seem like I have gone farther away, I am learning and getting healthier. Even as I get seemingly sicker. I will jump this horse again. Affording horseshows will require some major work opportunities ahead."
"So I am asking for it all. I am asking. For all of us who want it," the "Legally Blonde" star concluded her post. "Ask. Ask. Listen. I have the unicorn. Now I have to be able to find him again."
Selma revealed her MS diagnosis, a potentially disabling diseases of the brain and spinal cord, through an Instagram post back in October 2018. She has been since documenting her journey to recovery on social media and made her first public appearance since the diagnosis at a Vanity Fair Oscars after-party earlier this year. Last May, she was honored at Race to Erase MS Gala.
