Christina Applegate says she lives 'kind of in hell' with multiple sclerosis


Christina Applegate is opening up about living with multiple sclerosis, the unpredictable and potentially debilitating disease she was diagnosed with in 2021. 


“I live kind of in hell. I’m not out a lot, so this is a little difficult, just for my system. But of course, the support is wonderful, and I’m really grateful,” the actor said in an interview with “Good Morning America.”


Applegate received a standing ovation at the Emmys in January when she appeared on stage with a cane as a surprise presenter. She cracked a joke about her condition saying, “You’re totally shaming me with disability by standing up, but it’s fine.”


The “Dead to Me” and “Anchorman” star admitted she “kind of blacked out” in that moment.
