A comedy actress has revealed her health condition is deteriorating as she continues to fight a debilitating immune system disease on July 17.
Anger Management Co-star Selma Blair, 47, confirmed on social media that she is becoming more unwell as she battles with multiple sclerosis (MS).
“As I get seemingly sicker, I will jump this horse around again,” Blair said on Instagram, referring to her trained horse Mr. Nibbles. “Mr. Nibbles, we only had a short time before I could not even get to him or stay on but he has come so far.”

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. 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. And even though I may seem like I have gone farther away, I am learning and getting healthier. 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 💘
Blair has tried to take her mind off the debilitating disease by caring for her horse in Bell Canyon, 32 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
“After I gave birth and felt half dead all the time,” she said. “After the rage and the tears, after my heart exploded with caring and understanding, before any diagnosis, I searched for this horse. I knew the only place I was really growing with self love was at Cellar Door Farm.”
She believes her time at the farm has been well spent.
“Even though I may seem like I have gone farther away, I am learning and getting healthier,” Blair said. “Affording horse shows will require some major work opportunities ahead, so I am asking for it all … I have the unicorn, now I have to be able to find him again.”
You know @Selmablair from the movies she’s starred in, but I’m tweeting about her today as an amazing woman who is battling MS.
Selma is so kind, talented, & she has a delicious sense of humor.
But even the strongest people need support.

She previously described her experience with MS as a “journey” and that it made her realize the importance of being with family.
“This journey is a realization about the breaths around me,” Blair said earlier on Instagram. “More than even my own, I need you. I need this boy to see me do things I never thought I could and I will do my best, it really is gratitude.”

American Model Bella Hadid, who is friends with Blair, showed her support on social media.
“My favorite picture,” Hadid commented on Instagram.
Blair then invited Hadid to join her the next time she visits the farm.
“Bella Hadid we must go ride,” Blair said. “Say yes Miss.”
