Selma Blair Posts Video With New Leg Braces Helping Her Walk Confidently Amid Multiple Sclerosis Battle

Selma Blair, 47 has posted a new happy video of on Instagram of herself walking confidently while wearing new leg braces amid her battle with Multiple Sclerosis (M.S).

In the video, the award-winning actress could be seen walking towards her mirror excited and with a big smile on her face, wearing Ottobock braces and without the use of her usual cane or a scooter.

Selma captioned her post: ‘Insurance came through!!!! Thank you prosthetic and orthotic group for finding me such a game-changer of walking support and energy return.

‘Bouncy foot. Love it. I am giggly. I am turning from the waist with stability! @ottobockus_ca I am impressed. #practice.

Actress Selma was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2018 but has never given up trying to fight it for the sake of her son, Arthur, eight. She posted an IG image detailing her strugle with M.S.

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson not only designs the pieces #harperglass will wear on this new #Netflix show , but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, buttons my coats and offers her shoulder to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis .

The actress continued, I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and will power and the understanding producers at Netflix , I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it . And I laugh and I don’t know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best. Since my diagnosis at ten thirty pm on The night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends , especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff .

My producers #noreenhalpern who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member… thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I don’t have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. 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. 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.
