According to a report from E Online, Selma Blair is opening up about her multiple sclerosis diagnosis again. In a post shared on Thursday, the 47-year-old actress dished on her dreams of starting horseback riding once again, however, it might prove to be a challenge with her condition.
On social media, the star said she appears to be getting “sicker” all of the time. It was back in 2018, October, when the Cruel Intentions alum told her fans and followers that she was diagnosed with MS. Afterward, she came out to the Vanity Fair Oscars party and was also honored at the Race To Erase MS Gala.
While honoring her longtime friend at the Gala, Sarah Michelle Gellar, shared her opinion about Selma, describing her as one of the strongest people she knows. Moreover, she stated that Selma was doing a service by showing other MS sufferers that she’s a “true friend.”
Recently, Selma has continuously given updates on how she’s doing, moreover, the star explained that, unfortunately, her illness is having a negative effect on her family. The star said on her social media account that she “wasn’t with her son,” and was in the place of needing to get better.

I do not know how @therealthaibarani found this!!! But this is right out of 1996? I think I was still living in #NYC , auditioning. This is pre #cruelintentions This is probably #cousinlinda from #in&out. My six lines were cut , but it was the time of my life. Met @realeliroth and #kevinkline and #tomselleck and my friend @aileenie17 and @shalomharlow and so many more. It was heaven for a beginning actress to watch all this talent. And @jsmithcameron 💘💘💘. I was a lucky one. Kept me going. Happy Saturday. I miss them all. They are alive … I just mean … ❤️🤷♀️
Despite her struggle with multiple sclerosis, Selma Blair still finds herself on the receiving end of backlash sometimes. Earlier this year, the Hollywood star had to take to her social media to dispell claims of cultural appropriation from some of her followers.
Reportedly, Selma wrapped her head in a scarf, similar to the Islamic hijab, and she was accused of disrespecting Islamic culture. The star was apparently wearing the scarf to hide the fact she’s struggling with hair loss from alopecia.
The Sweetest Thing alum shared a photo of herself with her 7-year-old son in which they both wore head-scarves. “See, it’s a thing of love and warmth,” the actress remarked.
Speaking on the ubiquitousness of scarves, the Cruel Intentions alum stated such head-wear has been worn by people around the world for millennia.
