| Filed under: HealthSickHugh Hefner

Crystal dishes deets about her diagnosis.

So sad.

She also shared her own story in the powerful pic's caption, writing:

"If you have EVER GONE HIKING, please get tested for #LymeDisease. The best lab to do this is called 'Igenex' they are based out of Palo Alto. I was diagnosed a few days ago and have a long road ahead of me. Supposedly you get it from ticks but I have absolutely no recollection of being bit or having a rash or ANYTHING."

Wow. We can't even imagine how she must've felt when doctors told her the news!

But the gorgeous gal is using her scary situation as an opportunity to inform others about the awful disease, adding:

"Symptoms can range from sore muscles, sore back, sore neck, anxiety, fatigue, heart palpitations, muscle twitches, bladder pain, vision or hearing problems, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, brain fog, memory problems. Having just one of these could mean you have Lyme. Please please get tested."

She continued to raise awareness about the illness in the lengthy post, by drawing attention to other ways it can be transmitted, saying:

Cooper Hefner Thinks Playboy Should Still Feature Nudity! Says His Relationship With The Mag Is Now 'Non-Existent'!

Cooper Hefner is speaking out in a BIG way!

In a recent interview AND personal essay, Hugh Hefner's son explained why he's very against Playboy's decision to re-brand themselves as a non-nude magazine. Let's just say Coop is NOT happy with the transition and he eloquently laid out his myriad of reasons why!

Speaking on his disagreement with current Playboy CEO Scott Flanders, the 24-year-old explained:

"I've taken a massive step back with Playboy. Just due to that fact that I do not agree with the decisions and direction the company is actually going in. I was essentially asked to no longer participate in the board meetings because I didn't agree with his vision for the company. You either sort of take a step back and say, ‘Ok, I'm going to let this happen' or you try and do something about it."

Well, it sounds like things are quite tense at the mansion right about now! Maybe it was the best decision for Mr. Hefner to take a step back.

On his new media venture HOP, the young businessman elaborated on the situation, saying:

"My unwillingness to get on board with decisions like taking the company non-nude, selling the Mansion, and a laundry list of other brand initiatives, has rendered my relationship with Playboy's current CEO non-existent. Although there is nothing that I would want more than to work with a talented team and re-introduce the brand to my generation, I've made a commitment to myself to not work with leadership that puts their self-interest over the best interest of the brand. If I had the ability to prevent what current management is doing, I would have done so, but sleepless nights and a lot of thinking has brought me to the conclusion that the best option is to step back for the time being and allow things to unfold. I continue to have confidence that one day, as Disney and Apple did, Playboy will have its moment to appropriately reinvent itself. And when that comes, and current leadership has been moved out, I will happily walk back in to our offices and execute these blueprints for a better brand future."

Wow! Will mini-Hef be the next Steve Jobs?!

Speaking of that blue print, check out C.H.'s actual plans for Playboy's rebranding HERE.

It sounds like Cooper has some great plans! Especially the part about engaging with the LGBT community…

So, do YOU agree with Hefner's vision?
