Actress Christina Applegate has opened up about living with multiple sclerosis in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. The actress has revealed that her day-to-day life has been challenging after her diagnosis, saying that there is “never a good day.” She has also discussed the things she used to do easily but now realizes she took for granted.
Actress Christina Applegate discusses the challenges of living with multiple sclerosis, including difficulties with everyday tasks and being immunocompromised.
Applegate has shared that getting in the shower can be frightening, and there are certain things she can no longer do, such as carrying things and going down the stairs. While Applegate can still drive short distances and deliver food upstairs for her daughter, going down the stairs is challenging. She also revealed that being in a big group is exhausting, and she prefers to keep her environment as quiet and mellow as possible.
Applegate’s MS diagnosis has made her immunocompromised, so she tries not to be around too many people. She has stated that she has fewer people around than most would assume, and she likes to keep it that way. Applegate also revealed that she had a caretaker on the weekends, and her friend helps take care of her daughter during the week.
The actress announced her MS diagnosis in August 2021, while filming the third and final season of the Netflix show “Dead to Me.” Production was put on hold for five months while she started treatment. Applegate has said that it was all about learning what she was capable of once filming picked up again.
During an appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in December, Applegate said that filming the final season of “Dead to Me” was the hardest thing she’s ever done. She also said that it would most likely be her final acting role.
Applegate received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for her work in “Dead to Me” and has stated that she would like to develop and produce in the future. She has a lot of ideas in her mind and needs to execute them.
