Samantha Ruth Prabhu on Saturday said she has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. The actress opened up about her condition on Instagram while thanking her fans for the overwhelming response to the trailer of her upcoming movie 'Yashoda'. For the unversed, Myositis is the name for a group of rare conditions that can cause muscles to become weak, tired and painful. It is usually caused by a problem with the immune system, where it mistakenly attacks healthy tissue.
Revealing her medical condition, the actress shared a post captioning it as, "Your response to the Yashodha Trailer was overwhelming. It is this love and connection that I share with all of you, that gives me the strength to deal with the seemingly unending challenges that life throws at me. A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Myositis. I was hoping to share this after it had gone into remission. But it is taking a little longer than I hoped. I am slowly realizing that we don’t always need to put up a strong front."
"Accepting this vulnerability is something that I am still struggling with. The doctors are confident that I will make a complete recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days…. physically and emotionally…. and even when it feels like I can’t handle one more day of this, somehow that moment passes. I guess it can only mean that I am one more day closer to recovery. I love you.. THIS TOO SHALL PASS"
Samantha's upcoming movie Yashoda is written and directed by filmmaker duo Hari Shankar and Harish Narayan, the action thriller will be released on November 11.
