Selma Blair In 2018 she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

“I was at this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am deeply grateful. It’s so profound that I decided to share it. The brilliant costume designer #Allisaswanson is not only designing the clothes that #harperglass will be wearing on this new #Netflix show, but she is also carefully tucking my legs into my pants, pulling my top over my head, buttoning my coats and offering me her shoulder to support me. I have #multiplesclerosis”, Blair captioned an Instagram post in October 2018.

“I’m in an aggravation. By the grace of the Lord and the willpower and understanding producers at Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. i fall sometimes i drop things My memory is foggy. And my left side asks for directions from a broken GPS. But we do. And I’m laughing and I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do, but I’ll do my best,” she added.

In September 2022, Blair was cast as part of “Dancing with the stars.” Though she knew the journey would bring some challenges, she was ready to take them on.

Blair wears an ice vest during rehearsals

Blair was paired with Sasha Farber for Season 31 of DWTS. The pair took rehearsals hard and while Blair has taken care of her health, she hasn’t let it stop her.

On September 15, 2022, just days before the premiere, Farber shared a video of Blair during rehearsals. In the video, the Cruel Intentions actress wore an ice vest.

“Selms, why are you wearing an ice jacket?” Farber asked his partner.

“Because I’m heating up. A lot of people with MS… we heat up and as we heat up the inflammation gets bigger, triggers symptoms, exhaustion. So ice vest. Good deal,” she replied, giving Farber two thumbs up.

As a matter of fact, for brain & life, Overheating can and does trigger symptoms in MS patients. Getting too warm can cause numbness, trouble standing or walking, weakness, fatigue, and more in a person with MS. Although the symptoms are usually temporary, they can be uncomfortable.

Blair is “excited” to be on DWTS

“I’m so excited. I’m so happy, so empowered by this. I’m someone who’s historically maybe a little afraid of things – don’t be afraid,” Blair said E! news on 09/09/2022.

“This is a new chapter of increasing my stamina and really healing. Not just healing, but finding strength and support,” she continued, adding, “It’s for the viewer because that’s what gave me support. In dark times of my life, people have reached out – strangers on the street or on Instagram… I do it for them.”

She echoed those sentiments in an Instagram post she shared on September 10, 2022.

“I’m so happy to be dancing with @sashafarber1 on @dancingwiththestars.” Her caption readpartially.
