Selma Blair Reveals How She's Doing 1 Year After Big Oscars Moment

Selma Blair Reveals How She's Doing 1 Year After Big Oscars Moment

Selma Blair is currently feeling “sick” at home as she continues to undergo treatments for multiple sclerosis.

The 47-year-old Hellboy actress opened up to fans in an Instagram post on Tuesday (February 11) – one year after she stunned in her gown and cane at an Oscars after-party, a few months after revealing her diagnosis.

“This is the thing,” Selma captioned the photo below. “I feel sick. This is what happens. There is no bright light of glamour. Of course. It is long nights. Almost all nights. My muscles in my face and neck are in spasm. Or so tight I can’t even find a way to stretch. And I have been trying for three hours. On the ground stretching. I have had the stomach flu. Thanks Arthur [her 7-year-old son]! And I am even more sideways now. For now. But I am not killed by it.”

“I am strong enough not to be taken down any more than the average bear,” she continued. “That’s great news. Excellent reassurance. I recover. I stepped wrong last week. In the street. I don’t remember it happening. Or the pain. I was told. And my ankle is sprained and it makes me feel even more fragile. A simple ankle sprain. And I am lucky on a million counts. I know. And I am still feeling alone and vulnerable and scared about the future as a single mom. I’m not dying any more than anyone. I am just hurting. It feels like I am just breaking down. So there’s a truth to give to anyone else feeling this way. It’s just miserable. And scary. To feel unwell. I am so sorry.

“This is just me to you,” she added. “In the early hours of the morning. Cause I don’t know what else to do and I want so much to do better. May the silver lining surround us all. And guide us out of the darkest. Thank you all for being the biggest loves. I am in a slow time. I need to recover. I want to recover. And I don’t know what that even really means. 💛. I send you all a reassuring warmth. We all need it.”

We’re sending our love to Selma Blair on her recovery journey.
