11 months ago

Supermodel Bella Hadid has stopped making public appearances, causing concern among her fans about her well-being. Recently, Bella broke her silence and shared that she has paused her career to battle an illness she has been suffering from for many years.

Hadid’s brave battle with chronic Lyme disease.

Taking to Instagram, Bella shared a poignant post that showcased her strength and resilience in the face of a 15-year-long struggle that remained largely invisible to the world. Alongside a slideshow featuring a collection of medical reports spanning years and glimpses of her recent treatments, she gave 59.3 million followers a glimpse into her harrowing journey.

Bella’s appreciation and reassurance for fans.

Bella’s love and gratitude for her fans were evident in every line of her heartfelt message. Assuring them that she is “okay” and encouraging them not to worry, she stands as a pillar of strength, offering comfort to those facing their challenges. She offered a glimmer of insight into the transformative power of adversity, sharing, “If I had to go through all of this again, to get here, to this exact moment I’m in right now, with all of you, finally healthy, I would do it all again. It made me who I am today.”

The toll on self-confidence.

The toll of chronic illness on one’s self-confidence and mental well-being is often overlooked. Bella eloquently described the emotional turmoil she endured while striving to maintain her career and fulfill her responsibilities while grappling with debilitating symptoms. “Living in this state, worsening with time and work while trying to make me, my family, and the people who support me proud, had taken a toll on me in ways I can’t explain,” she revealed.

Radiating hope amidst heart-wrenching narratives.

Bella’s update radiates hope and resilience. Her journey has led her to a place of healing, and she passionately imparts the wisdom she has gained to those who may be struggling. “To be that sad and sick with the most blessings/privilege/opportunity/love around me was quite possibly the most confusing thing ever,” she admitted.

The health is her number 1 priority.

As Bella steps back from the limelight to prioritize her health and well-being, her final message exudes gratitude and determination. She extends heartfelt appreciation to her dedicated team, the doctors who have supported her, and her unwavering fanbase. Promising to return she said, “I’ll be back when I’m ready.”

Her family’s support is what saves her.

Bella expressed gratitude to her mother, “Thankful to my mommy for keeping all of my medical records, sticking by me , never leaving my side, protecting, supporting , but most of all, believing me through all of this” And her sister Gigi wrote warm words of support, "“I love you, I am so proud and happy for you!”

It turns out Bella is not the only one in the family who suffers from the illness. Her mother and younger brother have also been infected with Lyme disease.

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease emerges from a bacterial infection, often originating from a tick bite that carries the borrelia bacteria. This ailment ranks as the primary tick-borne affliction in the United States. The CDC estimates that it receives about 30,000 reported cases of Lyme disease each year.

We wish Bella good health and appreciate her decision to shed light on her challenges. Stories like these provide hope for all people who are also fighting for their health.
