The Sopranos’ actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler only recently shared that she’s been living with multiple sclerosis for 15 years, choosing to remain quiet about her health out of fear that it would affect her career. Following her announcement, she won the support of multiple sclerosis sufferers all over the world and is now an advocate for the disease.




According to Self magazine, Sigler is using her social media accounts to highlight what it’s like living with the disease and recently shared that she’s now using walking sticks to get around. In an Instagram post, she admits that she hated having to buy the walking sticks, concerned that there was a stigma associated with having a disability. In a bid to overcome the stigma and to be able to enjoy her trip to Jerusalem, she proudly displayed herself with her new sticks and urged others to do whatever they needed to do to continue to enjoy life.
She also spoke of her need to better cope emotionally with having multiple sclerosis and that she was undergoing hypnotherapy. Trying to hide the disease from the public eye for so long has obviously taken its toll and she’s now ready to set herself free from the feelings of shame and embarrassment that haunted her before.
