Christina Applegate Embraces Her New Normal — With the Most Glamorous Walking Sticks

After her MS diagnosis, the actress is proving that she doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk.

In the Netflix series Dead To Me, Christina Applegate stars as Jen Harding, a widow who has a few issues with the truth. But unlike Jen, Applegate sees honesty as the best policy.

On Thursday night, Applegate revealed to the Twittersphere — and the rest of the world, that as she prepares to re-enter public life, the use of walking sticks has become her “new normal.” In the tweet, with an accompanying photo of a quartet of custom walking sticks, Applegate writes, “I have a very important ceremony coming up. This will be my first time out since [sic] diagnosed with MS.”

For fans who may not recall, in August of 2021, Applegate revealed her diagnosis (also in a tweet) and said that the journey had been strange, but she was “supported by people I know who also have this condition.” She added “It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it.”

This tweet was met with an outpour of supportive messages, one of which came in the form of fellow actress Selma Blair, who also lives with MS. “Loving you always. Always here. As are our kids. Beating us up with love,” she replied to Applegate’s tweet.

Multiple Sclerosis, or MS as it’s more commonly referred to, is an autoimmune disease that impacts the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves and modifies the daily lives of everyone differently. Applegate has largely documented her journey with MS on Twitter, and though the day-to-day life may vary, a tweet on her 50th birthday last year revealed that it had been “a hard one” and encouraged fans to lift their heads, even though she spent the day with hers on a pillow.
