Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
When you think of the fabulous pop icon Cher, you probably think of the clothes, the hair, and the music! What many people don’t ever think about is fatigue. Specifically, chronic fatigue syndrome, which is what Cher was officially diagnosed with in 1991. CFS is a disorder that many like to make fun of, not understanding that it’s a real problem that can’t be cured with a few extra naps. It’s a tricky disorder that is hard to diagnose but can be treated with a combination of lifestyle changes and, sometimes, medication. Ultimately, the diagnosis hasn’t slowed the singer down, although she was forced to take a break for several years while figuring out how to manage her symptoms. Cher is still touring, still singing, and still making her fans happy.
