Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s health
Samantha had earlier opened up about being diagnosed with Myositis. The actress, who is undergoing treatment for the auto-immune condition, said that she has always been a fighter. Recalling the journey she went through battling her condition, Samantha clarified that ‘she’s not at a life-threatening stage.’
She said, “A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called myositis. I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. I am slowly realising that we don’t always need to put up a strong front. Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with. The doctors are confident that I will make a complete recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days…. physically and emotionally…. and even when it feels like I can’t handle one more day of this, somehow that moment passes. I guess it can only mean that I am one more day closer to recovery. I love you..THIS TOO SHALL PASS.”
