Sad To Hear

Quote


Actress Christina Applegate has announced that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The 49-year-old, known for her roles in “Bad Moms,” “Married… with Children” and “Dead to Me,” said in a tweet published overnight that she was diagnosed “a few months ago.”

“It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition,” wrote Applegate. “It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some @#$%& blocks it.”

Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system and is considered an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system attacks its own healthy cells. It affects quality of life and can be disabling.

It is tough, but MS is a very treatable disease these days. The majority of patient with MS are normal looking and no one would ever know they have something wrong with them. Better living through better pharmacology!

This is sad.

She's had breast cancer and a double preventative mastectomy.

Geeeze.

I hope she can deal with the MS.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Huh. My niece, about the same age as Christina, was diagnosed with MS about a week ago.

There are two degrees of MS, correct? I think I read that one is more debilitating than the other and Christina has the more serious condition. I wish her the best of luck. (as well as my niece!).

Christina Amphlett had the same double whammy of breast cancer and MS.

Sad.

Hmmm, she joins her "The Sweetest Thing" co-star Selma Blair with the diagnosis.
