Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
In the 90s and early 2000s, rapper Missy Elliott was a household name. If you’re wondering where she disappeared to, know that she didn’t stop making her own music by choice; Elliott was diagnosed with Grave’s disease in 2008, and had to step back to take care of her own health. Grave’s is a thyroid disorder that’s characterized by extreme weight loss, anxiety, and heart tremors. It’s sometimes treated with medication or surgery, but Missy manages her own symptoms through diet and exercise. And just because she hasn’t been on the charts herself doesn’t mean she hasn’t been working; Elliott also writes and produces for others. But she is slowly easing back into working for herself again, much to the delight of fans.
