Christina Applegate took to social media Thursday to mark her 50th birthday while reflecting on her recent multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

“Yup. I turned 50 today. And I have MS,” the actress tweeted out on her Nov. 25 birthday, which happened to fall on Thanksgiving this year. “It’s been a hard one. Sending so much love to all of you this day.

“Many are hurting today, and I am thinking of you,” she continued. “May we find that strength to lift our heads up. Mine currently is on my pillow. But I try.”

The “Dead to Me” star first publicly shared her MS diagnosis back in August, revealing that she received the news “a few months” prior.

“Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition,” Applegate tweeted at the time.

“It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a–hole blocks it.

“As one of my friends that has MS said ‘we wake up and take the indicated action’. And that’s what I do,” she continued. “So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo.”

In addition to an outpouring of support from fans, Applegate’s “The Sweetest Thing” co-star Selma Blair — who also suffers from MS — reached out with kind words.

Applegate underwent a double mastectomy in 2008 while fighting breast cancer, and had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in 2017 to avoid ovarian cancer.
