TV star Christina Applegate revealed Tuesday that she’s been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The 49-year-old Dead to Me actor announced her condition on Twitter, saying it’s been a “tough road” since her diagnosis a few months ago.

Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it.
