In an interview with People Magazine, film star Kristen Johnston confessed to being diagnosed with Lupus Myelitis (a form of Lupus unbeknownst to me).

For the record, let me just say that I had absolutely no idea what the heck Lupus Myelitis was.

HOWEVER, in doing my research, I found that Lupus Myelitis is a form of Transverse Myelitis– a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord.

“This rare but serious complication of lupus can include paralysis or weakness that ranges from difficulty in moving one limb to quadriplegia.”

The 3rd Rock from the Sun actress has bravely opened up to People Magazine about her life with the disease, as shown below in the video.
