The Emmy Award winner wished her 1.4 million Twitter followers a happy 50th birthday on Thursday, which also happened to be Thanksgiving. “Yup. Today is my 50th birthday. And I have multiple sclerosis.
It’s been a difficult one, “She penned something.”I’m sending so much love to everyone today,” Applegate continued. “Many people are in pain today, and I am thinking of you. May we find the courage to raise our heads. Mine is currently resting on my pillow. But I make an effort.”She previously discussed her MS experience on Twitter in August, just a few months after being diagnosed.
“It’s been an odd journey. But I’ve had a lot of help from people I know who also have this condition “At the time, Applegate wrote. “It’s been a difficult journey. But, as we all know, the road continues. Unless some asshole blocks it.
“Applegate has since been met with love from friends and fans alike. Selma Blair, with whom she starred alongside Cameron Diaz in the 2002 romantic comedy The Sweetest Thing, offered her support in the replies.
“Loving you always. Always here. As are our kids. Beating us up with love,” Blair, 49, wrote, to which Applegate responded: “Love you sister. Our children are truly bizarre.”Blair has also been candid about her own MS diagnosis, which she disclosed in 2018. She recently detailed her battle with the disease in the discovery+ documentary Introducing, Selma Blair, which Applegate suggested on Twitter.
James Marsden, Applegate’s Dead to Me co-star, has also praised her strength, telling Entertainment Tonight that it’s “really, really inspiring to see.”
“That is her personality. It’s just the way she is. Nothing can stop her, and she will battle and fight through anything, and I admire her as a person “Marsden stated this in September. “As a compassionate, wonderful human being who is fun to work with, she will figure out a way to not let anything get in the way of her success. That is exactly what she is doing.”
