The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster announced a few years back that she had been diagnosed with lyme disease and that she would be fighting a battle, as there is no known cure for the disease. However, Yolanda is always smiling and staying positive, and her decision to share her story on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has only been admirable.
Because of the Bravo platform, Yolanda Foster has been able to put both a face and a voice to lyme disease. Yolanda has been very open in her struggles and people who are dealing with this disease now has someone to relate to. But with this struggle, Foster has been getting worse behind closed doors, and this week, she shared a heartbreaking update.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster is now revealing the severity of her relapse. Late last year, Foster revealed that she had relapsed and that she would be struggling to fight back. Yolanda has since been traveling around the world to try different treatment options.
“I would like to apologize for my lousy participation in the blogging department at the moment. Although writing is usually my favorite thing to do, I unfortunately have lost the ability to do so in an intelligent matter at this time,” Yolanda Foster reveals, adding, “Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60% recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back.”
Of course, Yolanda hasn’t really been caught up in any drama on this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Instead, many of the wives are actually supporting Foster in her fight and journey, and she has even made peace with some of her co-stars, including Kim Richards. Foster has been dealing with real issues, such as her children going off to college. According to the Inquisitr, Yolanda is trying to stay positive as she recently revealed that she is counting rainbows instead of thunderstorms.
It is heartbreaking to hear how much she is struggling. And to put a visual on how badly things are for her, Foster reveals that she struggles to do things other people take for granted.
“I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it,” Yolanda reveals about her condition at present time.
