Yolanda Foster: I'm Fighting for My Life

The RHOBH star is on the mend after electro shock treatment for Lyme Disease.

It takes a lot to put on a brave face and battle a debilitating disease, but to do so with the whole world watching? That's a whole new level of bravery, and that's exactly how Yolanda Foster has been opening up about her struggles with Lyme Disease on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In a new interview, Yolanda talks about one of the scariest moments she's faced with the disease, and why she's optimistic about making a serious recovery.

In the latest issue of Life & Style, Yolanda reveals that she's truly doing what she can to overcome the disease, and that it hasn't been easy: "Everyday I'm fighting for my life."

Yolanda goes on to reveal that the disease has left her without essential motor functions. "I had such severe neurological Lyme disease, it shut down the function of my left frontal lobe. I couldn’t write, I couldn’t read — I was in bed for eight months staring at the ceiling."

The constant smiles we're used to seeing from Yolanda on RHOBH were scant in February when Yolanda's brain decreased to 20 percent of its normal function. Yolanda's doctor recommended electroshock therapy through a new clinical trial, and the results have had her quickly on the mend—and back to the uplifting personality we've grown to know and love.

She's got a few treatments to complete, but her brain function is on the up-and-up and we couldn't be happier for her. She's shared news of her recovery on Twitter, too.

Now, Yolanda has a positive attitude that she can get back in fighting shape. “I’m optimistic,” she says. “I realize how blessed I am to have all that I have.”

We're optimistic, too! Looking to send some healing vibes Yolanda's way? Leave your well wishes in the comments.
