Here's something you might not know: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster has chronic lyme disease.

The thing is, she only noticed something was wrong after filming the show!

Now she's opening up about her ongoing battle with the disease:

“I’ve had it for about a year-and-a-half, two years."

So what happened that tipped her off? Well, she called Taylor Armstrong an a-hole, only to realize that not only does she rarely swear, but she:

“had all these words floating my brain and … couldn’t make a sentence from it. That was the day I realized I was really sick and I needed help. I’m starting to see the light, and my brain is coming back!”

She's actually over 50 days into her treatment and takes antibiotics four times daily, and it's WORKING!

She continued:

“The Lyme disease had so severely affected my brain functioning that it was extremely hard for me to think, form sentences, and stay focused. I was always trying to be so extremely healthy because it was the only way I could get through my days.”

Well, we're glad you've been diagnosed and on your way back from the brink. We're sorry you had to go through any of this! How terrible!!

Luckily, lyme disease seems to be one of those things science knows a lot about, so we hope you'll be back to normal soon. We wonder how you got it!

    PEREZ!!!! Please please please wake up!! Do not contribute to the endless fight those of us with Lyme disease have by spreading ignorance with your ink!! The CDC has no idea how to properly treat Lyme Disease! Lyme Disease is in every county in California, all across the United States of America and most likely the world! It's a bigger epidemic than cancer, Alzheimer's and HIV put together! It is not easy to treat Lyme disease especially when you have had it for some time. Lyme disease is accompanied by other tick-borne illnesses like Babeisa, Bartonella, Cat scratch Fever, Rocky Mountain fever etc.. Personally and I can't speak for everyone but I can speak for some, and I wish I had cancer! At least I would know what I was fighting, there would be some kind of game plan, I could tell if I was winning, but I can NOT!! Lyme Disease is Known as the great imitator. It imitates MS, ALS and fibromyalgia to name a few. Women can pass it on congenitally to their unborn children. It may cause Autism. It's very hard to get a diagnosis as the testing for Lyme disease is not accurate. Perez 1/3 of the people with Lyme Disease commit suicide. LUCKY PEREZ? LUCKY PEREZ? LUCKY PEREZ? I WOULD RATHER HAVE NO LEGS THAN HAVE LYME DISEASE.
    We need research, accurate diagnostic testing and for people like you to do your homework, so that one day, those infected, will have a chance to live a life with dreams and hopes! A life with no pain and a zero percent chance of suicide.

    Re: Jmeeliz – Well said! Maybe Perez will take the time to read about the suffering we are all facing with this disease before he speak about it next time…
