Yolanda Foster pens a heartbreaking blog. She is a Dutch American television personality, model, and interior designer and well known for starring on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and now she talks about her Lyme disease. She is having a difficult time three year battle against it. She explains that there are now effects making her struggle to write and read.
“Although writing is usually my favorite thing to do, I unfortunately have lost the ability to do so in an intelligent matter [sic] at this time,” she begun. “Most of you know I have been battling Lyme disease for the past three years. I wasted the first year trying to get diagnosed and spent the next two trying to find a cure. I have gone from the conventional long-term antibiotics to about every holistic protocol there is to offer. Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60 percent recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back.”
“Lyme Neuroborreliosis is a spirochete infection in the brain that can leave one with severe brain impairment and neurological issues. I have lost the ability to read, write or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.”
Also on Instagram, Foster shared a picture of herself in a hospital bed, which she captioned,
“I guess God gives his hardest battles to the strongest soldiers.”
However, despite the fact that Foster sometimes feels “tired and hopeless,” she explained that she still has an “undeniable spirit that will continue to fight and travel the world until I have the proper answers.”
During the reality TV star’s blog post, she gave thanks to family and close friends for their all their support.
“I am blessed with the unwavering support of my husband, my children and a handful of true friends, and I would like to thank you for all your sweet messages and support on social media,” she wrote, before concluding with a sweet and positive message urging people to be kinder to one another.
“As a human being battling this everyday invisible disability, I ask you to join me in making a kind gesture to someone every day, because everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know
