“I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy,” she wrote on Saturday.

“And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it.” She also expressed gratitude to her doctor, saying that she had been trying to get a diagnosis for a long time.

“I have had symptoms for years but was never taken seriously until I fell down in front of [Dr Jason Berkley] 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.”

The Mom and Dad actor also expressed optimism for the future.

“I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others,” Blair wrote.

“And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask.”

“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.”
