Ramona Singer recently shared that she has been diagnosed with Lyme disease. After feeling under the weather around Valentine’s Day this year, The Real Housewives of New York City cast member visited a specialist to see what was going on with her health. Fortunately, she was able to detect the disease in its very early stages.
“We caught it early, and I’m very lucky and very blessed,” Ramona told E! News. So how is she doing now? It seems like the RHONY OG is feeling absolutely fantastic!
Ramona shared a snowy selfie during a trip to Aspen, in which she updated her fans on her current condition. She wrote, “My antibiotics have kicked in, and I am feeling better than ever!”
During her trip to Colorado, Ramona has been up to all kinds of fun. She spent International Women’s Day hitting the slopes in a chic, all-white ski ensemble.
The night before, she posted a hilarious meme (of herself, of course), saying that she’s “gotta get a buzz” for a Saturday night in Aspen.
Ramona has explained that it is important to get tested regularly for Lyme disease, and feels that she contracted it after getting an undetected tick bite while spending time at home in the Hamptons.
“You must get tested once a year, especially if you’re in an area where there are deer,” she said.
The RHONY mom was familiar with Lyme before her diagnosis, as her sister has previously recovered from the disease. Ramona also dated a man who volunteered at the first Lyme disease clinic about 30 years ago.
