The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster has been sharing her Lyme disease struggle on the show for several seasons. She has kept a positive attitude, but Yolanda has revealed that it is a struggle behind closed doors and that she often stays in bed because she simply can't function. The darker side of her disease isn't documented on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Recently, Yolanda Foster suffered a heartbreaking relapse, and she has been traveling to Seoul to try some alternative treatment options. As Foster puts it, she isn't questioning the power of western medicine, but she is willing to try just about anything to see what works. It is believed that Yolanda contracted the disease in her backyard.
According to a new set of tweets, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster is now revealing that she is staying positive as she celebrated her birthday while in treatment for this horrible disease.
"Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and face your future without fears #My51thBirthday #SeoulSunsetInMyPJ's," Yolanda Foster revealed, sharing a picture of herself in her pajamas, adding, "I am trying to count the rainbows not the thunderstorms."
She later released a statement saying that she was thankful for the birthday love. But there have been questions regarding this relapse. Foster's family have expressed concern about this recent relapse.
"[Yolanda was] hospitalized several days ago after suffering a very serious relapse of Lyme disease. Even though Yolanda was discharged from the hospital, friends and family are very concerned," a source has revealed, adding, "This is a very, very serious disease, and Yolanda has been such a trooper dealing with it. All Yolanda wanted was to be home for Christmas, which has happened."
The problem with Yolanda Foster's case is that she was diagnosed very late and had been dealing with the disease for at least two years. The relapse and her journey have both been extensively covered by the Inquisitr. But even though Foster is dealing with this disease, sources close to her say that she will never complain about it.
Of course, Yolanda Foster is always celebrating her children, including the modeling success both of her daughters have achieved. All three of her children have been crucial in her recovery efforts as she has been traveling to receive treatment. Her husband, David Foster, have also proved to be a rock for her.
