What was Selma Blair's documentary about?
In 2021, Selma released a documentary that delved into her battle with multiple sclerosis.
Selma said despite suffering from symptoms for years, her condition went un-diagnosed until 2018, when she was 46.
The documentary, which is titled Introducing, Selma Blair, follows the actress over a period of two months as she undergoes a stem cell transplant in the hopes of healing her condition.
After a small theatrical release, the documentary became available to stream on Discovery Plus.
Selma's fans have taken to social media to praise the actress' honesty, with one user on Twitter telling viewers to "keep a box of kleenex handy" when they watch the documentary.
How is Selma Blair dealing with multiple sclerosis?
Selma said she had never felt better after undergoing stem cell treatment and chemotherapy to treat her multiple sclerosis.
While there is no cure for the disease, Selma remains proactive and focuses on the things she can do, rather than those she can't.
"It was a really hard time in my life," Selma said in an interview with People. "People don't say how excruciating, emotionally, it can be to kind of prove you're not well. But I want to tell the truth about MS. It is important to me that people see what living with a chronic illness is like."
She still struggles with fatigue and reduced motor function, but she said throwing a football with her 10-year-old son, Arthur, and practicing jogging to the mailbox helps.
"I have a circle of people in my life who use wheelchairs who have disabilities that I've looked to for a lot of my grounding, for my own confidence of getting into this space," she said.
"They're the light bearers to me, the people in the disabled communities that are really trying to live their best lives and try and implement more change."
