Actress Selma Blair Shares Emotional Moment After Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis

-

Back in October, actress Selma Blair shared with her fans that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. And after sharing that kind of news, it would be no surprise if Blair wanted to just stay in bed and feel sorry for herself. But that’s not what strong women do.

Instead, she recently shared the moment in which she was reunited with her beloved horse. There for a while, she hasn’t been able to ride the horse due to the pain she was experiencing. However, she is now envisioning a day in which she rides again.

“This happened,” the 46-year-old shared in the photos that showed her loving on her horse. “My magical unicorn, #mrnibbles, held my body while I broke open with gratitude. I haven’t been able to ride for four months or more. I haven’t been able to get to him, so my saint of a trainer, [@kjrides] brought him to me.”

One picture even showed Blair crying.

“It was a fairytale,” she wrote. “My horse in my front yard, with more emotions than these words can hold. The gratitude. Thank you #cellardoorequestrian for knowing when I needed you the most. I will heal. I will ride. But until then I will hold onto this feeling and post pictures whenever we all need to believe people will move mountains and horses to help us heal.”

Selma first shared the news of her diagnosis in October.

“I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow,” she wrote at the time. “I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am OK.”
