While a lot of Bollywood celebrities share their work out regime and inspire their fans, Sushmita Sen stands out amongst all. And here she's given us one more reason to feel inspired and adore her more as she shared her story of suffering from an autoimmune disease. In 2014, Sushmita said that she had Addison's disease and was on a high dose of medications. But the actress fought back and came out stronger and healthier than ever.
She wrote, "After I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Addison’s disease in September 2014, it left me feeling like I had no fight left in me. A fatigued body filled with immense frustration & aggression. The dark circles under my eyes can’t even begin to explain the dark times I endured for 4 long years :) To have steroids substitute cortisol & to live with its innumerable side effects took its toll. There is NOTHING more tiring than to live with a chronic illness. Enough was enough, I had to find a way of strengthening my mind, allowing my body to follow suit. I meditated with #Nunchaku :).”
She further added, "Aggression out, fight back in & pain turned into an art form :) I healed in time, my Adrenal glands woke up, no more steroids, no withdrawals & NO AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION as of 2019. :)) Lesson: NO ONE KNOWS YOUR BODY BETTER THAN YOU, LISTEN TO IT. :) There is a warrior in all of us, never give up!!! Thank you to my Teacher Nupur Shikhare for being my rock through this journey :) I love you guys!!! #ShantiShantiShanti #DuggaDugga.”
