If you had your eyes on the "Vanity Fair" Oscars after-party red carpet on Sunday, you probably noticed that actress, Selma Blair had a bedazzled cane while working the cameras. As you might recall, Blair first revealed that she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) last August, but now she's opened up about living with the disease to “Good Morning America.”

First of all, if you watch the interview you’ll notice that it seems hard for her to speak – that’s just one of the on-and-off symptoms,spasmodic dysphonia, which is a neurological disorder that affects the voice box. Blair said that she was actually in the middle of a bad flare-up of MS during the interview, which made her a little “scared of talking.” Even so, she jokes she “loves a camera” and is glad to be able to showcase what struggling with MS is like.

Applauding her bravery for doing the interview during this flare up to raise awareness. This video brought tears to my eyes -- sending her lots of love and positive vibes.
