Selma Blair has revealed she is in remission after years of a painful multiple sclerosis flare.
She struggled with immense pain from the chronic immune disease, losing the ability to fully use her left leg and having difficulty speaking.
The actress opted for a stem cell transplant and an "aggressive" course of chemotherapy to restart her immune system.
She is working on a documentary called 'Introducing Selma Blair' in which she talks about the transplant and offers an intimate look into her life with MS.
While appearing virtually at the discovery+ TCA panel this Monday in promotion of the doc (via People.com), Blair shared the good news of her remission.
"My prognosis is great. I'm in remission. Stem cell put me in remission," she said. "It took about a year after stem cell for the inflammation and lesions to really go down."
She spoke about being hesitant to go public too soon, sharing: "I was reluctant to talk about it because I felt this need to be more healed and more fixed.
"I've accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting.
"That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn't look like this for everyone."
Selma Blair spoke about feeling "unwell and misunderstood", "burnt out" and about how MS "can be very isolating."
The actress concluded: "To hear even just me showing up with a cane or sharing something that might be embarrassing, it was a key for a lot of people in finding comfort in themselves and that means everything to me.
"I'm thrilled that I have some platform. In no means am I saying that I'm speaking for all people in this condition or any condition of chronic illness, I'm speaking my story and I that helps normalise one thing to open the door for other people to be comfortable in telling their stories. I'm thrilled to have this here."
