Actress Selma Blair estimates that she struggled with multiple sclerosis for at least fifteen years before actually being diagnosed with it, a problem that many MS sufferers are familiar with. Blair announced her illness publicly in late 2018, but many are still unaware of exactly how much the disease has affected her day-to-day life, not to mention her acting. The actress, whose career has spanned several decades, is starting to speak more openly about the extreme fatigue she struggles with, and how her illness causes her to drop things and lose her balance. MS has even affected her voice by causing her to develop spasmodic dysphonia, which causes it to tremble. Still, Blair remains optimistic about her future as she manages the condition with medications.
