Default Christina Applegate reveals she has Multiple Sclerosis….

…this is so unfair, I adore Christina and her journey through breast cancer was not that long ago….and she just has the most amazing take on life and amazing optimism…

Christina Applegate has revealed she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Emmy-winning actress is widely known for her cameo in Friends as Rachel's sister Amy, but has also appeared in a raft of films and TV shows.

Tweeting on Tuesday, the star wrote: "Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It's been a strange journey.

But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It's been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a****** blocks it."

She later added: "As one of my friends that has MS said 'we wake up and take the indicated action'.

"And that's what I do. So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo".

Good for her being so positive.

There's all kinds of help out there these days.

My mother was diagnosed with MS a few years ago. I have to say she's doing brilliantly and responding really well to meds.

Hope it all works out for her.
