Christina Applegate reveals her top bucket list goals for ‘the time I have remaining’

by admin

Christina Applegate is determined not to let multiple sclerosis prevent her from achieving her remaining ambitions.

On Wednesday, the 52-year-old Bad Moms actress told her followers on X, “There are things I want to do with the days I have left in life.”

Among her aspirations, Applegate mentioned her desire to work with Shirley MacLaine, the Oscar-winning actor from Terms of Endearment, and to take shots with Cher.

For those worried that her post implied her days were limited, Applegate clarified.

“And yes my days are so big,” she wrote. “Just saying.”

Applegate disclosed her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2021. MS is a progressive autoimmune disorder affecting the brain and spinal cord. The condition presents a variety of symptoms, including muscle stiffness, vertigo, and bladder problems, though the severity of these symptoms can differ significantly among individuals.

MS is a lifelong condition which still has no known cure.

Since her revelation, the Emmy-winning actor has been forthright about MS and its impact on her daily life.

On Tuesday, Applegate shared on her podcast, MeSsy (co-hosted by actor Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who also has MS), discussing how the disease affects her independence and ability to perform everyday tasks. The actor humorously remarked that she cannot shave her body while showering without risking a fall.

In a scenario she believes will resonate with others living with MS, Applegate described needing to “sit on the floor of your shower and contort yourself in strange ways” to groom.

For Applegate, candid humour about the pain and awkwardness of living with MS is a vital part of coping.

During a 2022 appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Applegate mentioned that her “humour shield” is what keeps her OK.

“But of course, down on the insides, you feel the things and I do it to kind of deflect and then also make people not be scared to be around me,” she confessed. “When people see me now as a disabled person, I want them to feel comfortable. That we can laugh about it.”
