Yolanda Foster has been battling Lyme disease for a few years now and losing brain function has really changed her life in a terrible way. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star posted an update on Instagram on Monday morning, and her message was heartbreaking for so many of her fans who have been hoping and praying that her recent treatments would get her to a better place.
“I miss ME being ME……… I don’t remember what it’s like to be normal #PreLymeAttack #BrainRobbery #ChronicNeurologicalLyme,” Yolanda captioned a photo of herself before Lyme Disease took over much her life.
Yolanda Foster has been traveling the world receiving different medical care to try and lessen the effects of Lyme disease. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Foster was just in Asia with her husband, David Foster. There she underwent a “risky” treatment that is not FDA approved. The treatment was extremely expensive, but it was something that the couple felt would be beneficial to Yolanda’s health. David has been very supportive of his wife’s challenge, and sources say that he will pay whatever it costs to get her better.
“A lot of great medicines and ancient therapies are blocked by the FDA, so that’s why I choose to travel and recognize the value of diverse points of view in medicine. I am a firm believer that God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest call, so even though I have not found a cure, I have faith that I will,” Yolanda said of her recent treatments.
Yolanda Foster has a great support system which can only help her as she continues to struggle with getting her Lyme disease in check. According to People Magazine, the reality star and model received “get well” flowers from her friend, Kris Jenner, over the weekend. The gift certainly brightened Yolanda’s day, and she posted a photo of herself with the gorgeous bouquet (not pictured above).
As many people know, Foster has had her brain function compromised, which is a somewhat common symptom of the disease.
“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 wrote in a blog post last month.
