Yolanda Foster: I’m “a Hostage of my Debilitating Disease”

The 'Real Housewives' star has spoken about how she feels she is a hostage to Lyme disease.

Y olanda, who recently also confirmed her split from husband David Foster after four years of marriage, commented about her struggle with the disease via her blog, while a new season of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ has also just premiered. She wrote that she struggle with the illness has shown her more about how people are:

“Becoming chronically ill has definitely given me a greater understanding of human nature, and I’ve learned to accept people’s lack of long-term compassion for others, while they live their busy lives. I have gone from being an outspoken multi-tasking social butterfly to a hostage of my debilitating disease. I might only be a shell of the woman I used to be, but my heart is still the same, and even though I can only do life one day at a time, I am at peace and have surrendered to my new normal–for now.”

She is also learning now to focus on her looks so much. The former model explained that she’s trying not to focus about what people have to say about her appearance:

“I’d be lying if I said it’s not hard to be judged by the way I look. Its almost like you have to show scars and broken bones in order to be warranted understanding. Does it count that even though we don’t “look” great, that we show up..? It’s tempting to be distracted by negativity, but I choose to stay focused on the light at the end of the tunnel and not let anything interrupt my healing process. Being mentally and neurologically compromised for so long has presented me with life’s biggest challenge, and I need all of ME to fight this till the end.”
