    Selma Blair has been discharged from multiple sclerosis treatment, and took to Instagram on Thursday to express her gratitude for her team of doctors and next chapter of recovery.

    “Today is a banner day. I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do," the "Cruel Intentions" and "Hellboy" actress wrote. "This has been a process. And will continue to be one. I thank you all for your love and support. I see things so much more clearly now. And I am excited to share this journey when I am ready.”

    Blair added, "I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. I wanted to make sure any complications that might arise here were my private space. And we got through brilliantly. I thank you all for your love and support and that extra dose of great with a @people cover. I see things so much more clearly now. And I am excited to share this journey when I am ready."

    Blair has been undergoing treatments since being diagnosed with MS in August 2018. She told People magazine that she has experienced constant weakness and fatigue. The condition has also impacted her appetite and diaphragm reflexes, and she said she frequently feels nauseous.

    Blair has been honest about her diagnosis with her 8-year-old son Arthur, whom she had with fashion designer Jason Bleick. 

    “He’s had to endure a lot. He’s seen a lot,” Blair told People. She added that her son has called her brave, something she said has kept her motivated to persevere.

    “This is it. The only life we got,” she said to People. “My disease isn’t a tragedy, but I tell myself, ‘You’re going to live in a way that would be an example for yourself and your son.' ”
