Christina Applegate is opening up about a difficult diagnosis. The 49-year-old Dead to Me actress took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to share that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
"Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS," Applegate wrote. "It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition."
The Emmy winner added that it has been "a tough road" since her diagnosis.
"But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a**hole blocks it," she added.
Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it.
In March 2020, Blair opened up about advice she'd give to others who received a frightening medical diagnosis, saying they should try to "be open, but also really take this opportunity to be the best you you can be, to help your days along."
As for season 3 of Applegate's Netflix show, Dead to Me, ET has learned that production has been paused temporarily, but we have no further details as to why.
Netflix and CBS Studios said in a statement to ET, "We love and support Christina and respect her privacy as she takes the time and space she needs in this moment."
This isn't the first time Applegate, who is mom to 10-year-old daughter Sadie with husband Martyn LeNoble, has been open with her fans about her health. The actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, and had a double mastectomy later that same year. The double mastectomy saved her life at age 36 after her breast cancer was detected by a MRI.
