Selma Blair Shares Update On MS Battle, Dreams Of Riding Her Horse While Admitting She’s Getting ‘Seemingly Sicker’

Selma Blair took to Instagram on Thursday to provide her followers with an update on her ongoing struggles with multiple sclerosis.

In the caption to a photo in which she’s kissing a horse — whose name is apparently Mr. Nibbles — the “Hellboy” actress says she is “learning and getting healthier” while admitting she’s becoming “seemingly sicker” — but remains hopeful she’ll eventually regain enough of her health to be able to ride Mr. Nibbles again.

“After I gave birth and felt half dead all the time, after the rage and the tears, after my heart exploded with caring and understanding, before any diagnosis, I searched for this horse,” she writes. “I knew the only place I was really growing with self love was at @cellardoorequestrian. My trainer found me #skytop. He needed to be able to handle kisses. Prerequisite. Truly. And he did. #mrnibbles.  We only had a short time before I couldn’t even get to him or stay on. But he has come so far.”

Blair, 47, publicly revealed her MS diagnosis in October 2018, and opens up about the current state of her health.

“And even though I may seem like I have gone farther away, I am learning and getting healthier,” she continues. “Even as I get seemingly sicker. I will jump this horse around again. Affording horseshows will require some major work opportunities ahead. So I am asking for it all. I am asking. For all of us who want it. Ask. Ask. Listen. I have the unicorn. Now I have to be able to find him again. #tbt. #loveheals 💘.”

In an interview with Robin Roberts for “Good Morning America”, Blair revealed she actually felt a sense of relief when she was diagnosed with MS, as she had felt there had been something going on with her health for years but wasn’t able to figure out what it was.

“I cried,” she told Roberts. “They weren’t tears of panic. They were tears of knowing I now had to give in to a body that had loss of control and there was some relief in that.”
