Selma Blair has continued to be open about the realities of life with multiple sclerosis . The actress, 46, and mom regularly shares glimpses into her life and how she has been dealing with her diagnosis, whether it's a good day or a rough one.
Her latest post includes a series of photo memories from last summer. In most of the photos, her son Arthur is playing in a pool and on a floaty. He has a big smile on his face. She also includes a photo of what looks like her red-painted toes with her emotional support animal, Pippa , and an image from her cryotherapy visit.
In her caption, Selma reflects on how she was feeling last summer. "I was already falling. Couldnt hold a pen. But we were together. I was really happy. I even tried cryotherapy. I am so glad this movie of pics exists. I was always there. I didn't miss it. Until now. I am missing it. Road to recovery."

Selma included the hashtags #arduous and #lonely to the end of her caption, revealing more of the emotional journey she has endured. The actress revealed her diagnosis publicly in October of last year , but she had struggled with the unexplained symptoms and MS flare-ups for many years. "I have had symptoms for years," Selma wrote in a previous Instagram post , "I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least."
Earlier this week, Selma shared a sweet video showing what she described as a perfect day with her son . In the video, she's roving around on her Alinker mobility scooter while her son, Arthur, is perched on the front. "Joy," Selma wrote about the video. "My son hitched a ride and we had a perfect day."
Selma deserves recognition for continuing to be open and honest about her MS symptoms-her struggles and her bright spots, too.
