Selma shared the details of her disease with her Instagram fans and wrote:
“I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me, dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days amongst the challenges.”
“And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that mri. I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of him trying to sort out what I thought was a pinched nerve.”
“I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I am relieved to at least know. And share. my instagram family… you know who you are. (sic)”
