I have to give the sibling of the permanent A+ lister for coming up with a creative disease to cover for all the substance abuse issues.
I haven’t heard a disease that good since the A+ list mostly movie actress who sometimes directs.
Disease: Nervous System Disorder
Solange Knowles Opens Up About Her Battle With a Nervous System Disorder on Instagram – 2017
Solange Knowles is kicking off 2018 with a commitment to self-care. The songstress took to Instagram this morning to announce that she has canceled her New Year’s Eve performance at Afropunk Johannesburg due to struggles with her health.
“The past five months I have been quietly treating, and working through an Autonomic Disorder,” she wrote in an extended caption on the social platform. “It’s been a journey that hasn’t been easy on me…sometimes I feel cool, and other times not so cool at all.” She did not specify what type of nervous system disorder she has, though many have trouble regulating heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature and experience feelings of fatigue, faintness, weakness and cognitive impairment. She did thank those that have known about her health issues and kept things confidential, including Afropunk. “I can’t thank Afro Punk enough for their support, and to all of the other festivals this past summer/fall who have known about my health… and gone out of their way to make me feel supported while doing these shows.”
Knowles’s personal share comes off the heels of Selena Gomez’s glimpse into the often shrouded arena of illness, which was afforded some light through a detailed account of her Lupus-induced kidney transplant—a divulgence which, too, began on Instagram. This year also saw brave celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen and Julia Louise-Dreyfus take to social media to share their battles with postpartum depression and breast cancer, respectively. – Source
Angelina Jolie reveals Bell’s Palsy diagnosis, breaks silence on divorce from Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie is opening up about her difficult year, from a Bell’s Palsy diagnosis to her split from Brad Pitt.
In a Vanity Fair cover story, Jolie reveals that in addition to high blood pressure, she developed Bell’s Palsy, a condition resulting from damage to facial nerves, which caused one side of her face to droop.
“Sometimes women in families put themselves last… until it manifests itself in their own health,” Jolie, 42, said, credited acupuncture for a full recovery. Vanity Fair did not elaborate on the cause of the nerve damage. – Source
