Christina Applegate has revealed to her fans and the world that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The actress shared on Twitter Tuesday morning with a message on her health. "Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS," she began. "It's been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It's been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it."
"As one of my friends that has MS said 'we wake up and take the indicated action'. And that's what I do," the Dead To Me actress continued. "So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo."
Applegate has had many obstacles with her health in the past. In 2008 the 49-year-old had a double mastectomy to beat breast cancer. Then in 2017, Applegate had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. During an interview with Today she said: "My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008. I could prevent that... That's how I've taken control of everything."
