SA Celebrities And Famous Celebrities Who Have Battled Chronic Illness

There are a lot of people that struggle with chronic ailments, including famous people.

There are a great number of famous people who are afflicted with a wide range of persistent illnesses and conditions, some of which have a long-term impact on their ability to operate normally. Selma Blair's capacity to act is currently being hindered by Multiple Sclerosis (MS), while Anwar and Bella Hadid's ability to perform is being hindered by Lyme disease.

The fact that famous people are susceptible to illness in the same way that the rest of us are does not lessen the significance of their humanity.

Some prominent people, just like the rest of us, struggle to overcome the incapacitating effects of crippling chronic health conditions.

In addition to having time to relax at spas and on holidays, celebrities frequently schedule appointments with doctors to have various medical examinations performed on their bodies. Even if their assistants are able to pick up their drugs, it is still the patient's responsibility to ensure that they take their medications at the prescribed times.

Although it is unfortunate for the celebrity who is ill, the illness may serve as a wellspring of motivation for others who are dealing with the same condition as the celebrity by drawing attention to it.

Connie Ferguson - Chronic depression

Constance Ferguson is a Botswana native but currently makes her home and maintains her professional life in South Africa. She is known for her work in the entertainment industry as an actress, director, producer, and businesswoman. Her part as Karabo Moroka in the South African daytime soap opera Generations is one of the most well-known roles of her career. Her participation on the program extended the entirety of its existence, from its inception in 1994 all the way through its conclusion in 2010.

During an interview with Glamor magazine, Connie Ferguson disclosed that she had been dealing with persistent depression for quite some time.

Selena Gomez - Lupus

Gomez's interviews typically revolve on a recurring topic in which she goes on and on about her struggle with lupus, a disorder in which the patient's immune system attacks both the patient's skin and their internal organs.

In 2017, when Gomez was only 24 years old, she received a kidney donation from her best friend, Francia Raisa, in the hope that it would allow her to be cured of the ailment. The singer shared in 2017 that a kidney transplant from a friend "saved her life" and that she is "doing a lot better" since receiving the transplant.

Kim Kardashian West - Psoriasis

Psoriasis, also known as eczema, is a skin condition that causes severe scaling and rashes. KKW suffers from this condition. She has dealt with pre-eclampsia in the past, which is a condition that occurs during pregnancy and causes extreme swelling and nausea. She experienced these symptoms while she was pregnant with her daughter North West.

In spite of the fact that she delivered both of her first two children, North and Saint, she ultimately chose to have her third and fourth children, Chicago and Psalm, delivered by surrogates due to the complications she experienced during her lengthy pregnancies.

Winnie Harlow - Vetiligo

Vitiligo is a condition that causes significant patches of the skin to lose their color. In March of 2018, she captioned an Instagram photo with the following: "I'm not a 'Vitiligo Sufferer.'" "I'm not a 'Vitiligo model.' I am Winnie. I am a model. And [I] happen to have Vitiligo. Put an end to calling me or anyone else any of these names. I AM NOT in any kind of pain! If I'm successful at anything, it's telling people that the ways in which they differ from one another do not define who they are."
