Christina Applegate Opens Up About M.S. Diagnosis: “I’m Never Going To Accept This. I’m P****D”

Production of the show shut down for about five months so that Applegate could begin treatment. “There was the sense of, ‘Well, let’s get her some medicine so she can get better,’” she said. “And there is no better. But it was good for me. I needed to process my loss of my life, my loss of that part of me. So I needed that time.”

The Married… with Children actress added, “Although it’s not like I came on the other side of it, like, ‘Woohoo, I’m totally fine.’ Acceptance? No. I’m never going to accept this. I’m pissed.”

The actress recently shared a photo of her walking sticks on Twitter saying, “This will be my first time out since diagnosed with MS. Walking sticks are now part of my new normal.”
