Selma Blair is 'grieving' after MS diagnosis


Selma Blair is “grieving” her old life following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

Five months after being diagnosed with the condition, which can affect the brain and/ or spinal cord, the 46-year-old took the time on Thanksgivi­ng to reflect on her new life with MS.

“Thanksgivi­ng is dwindling down for me. I stayed home. It was the right place for me today. And tears came,” the Cruel

Intentions star wrote on Instagram. “I have been grieving recently. For the things I took for granted.”

Blair confessed her body was now unable to do the sporty things she used to enjoy doing with her son, Arthur Saint Bleick, 7, and described the emotional moment she collapsed while doing a cartwheel.

“A cartwheel was just as easy as taking a breath. But when I began to turn one yesterday on an impulse to show my son who had forgotten, it went all wrong. A jumble of confusion for this body I knew so well. A heap. A heap on the ground,” Blair candidly shared.
