Speaking in her documentary ‘Introducing, Selma Blair’, she said of her life before the treatment: “It was a really hard time in my life. People don’t say how excruciating, emotionally, it can be to kind of prove you’re not well. But I want to tell the truth about MS. It is important to me that people see what living with a chronic illness is like.”

The ‘Legally Blonde’ actress had to go through treatment that included an aggressive course of chemotherapy and a long recovery that took its toll on her physically and emotionally.

She added: “The severe fatigue is still such a gargantuan boulder in my way.#

“I’m working on it. Little by little, I can do all these things. I mean, I can’t say I could go running, but I can jog down to the mailbox if I were to practice a few times.”
