Selma Blair has been battling multiple sclerosis and she’s been very open about her struggles. She recently went on Good Morning America for an interview with Robin Roberts to talk about how she’s doing. More recently, she posts a photo with her 8-year-old son, Arthur, along with an emotional message.
“It is darkest before the dawn, I have always heard. And I keep it in mind,” her post begins. “I still get overwhelmed in the chaos of the dark. And I am so deeply moved at how many people called or wrote or left comments after my last post.”

“The old me was ashamed,” Blair continues. “Ashamed to be so transparent with vulnerability or fear. And I wanted to delete the image. The heart bruised words. But you all changed that with your words of support. I was humbled … Maybe I will print and put in a book for when I need it again.”
She notes that she “failed as a mom a million times yesterday” but “Arthur was fine.” She writes, “The world didn’t stop. I cried. He laughed. He played a fishing video for me. We slept and woke and he took this. He is golden. Alive. Happy.”
