Yolanda Foster's debilitating and painful battle with Lyme disease has impacted almost every aspect of her life. She revealed on her blog this week that she, husband David Foster, and her son have all moved into a smaller apartment "in order to have a more manageable scope of responsibilities while I recover slowly and learn to take life one day at a time."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who has put her fabulous mansion on the market, also expressed her disappointment in witnessing her daughters Gigi and Bella Hadid on their meteoric rises in the fashion world. One thing that stung: having to skip seeing the two models walk the Tom Ford runway during Fashion Week earlier this year.
"I’ve waited my whole life for that exciting moment, but while I couldn’t be there in person, at least today’s technology allowed me to live-stream the show from bed," she writes. "I’ve cried my eyes out for missing so many precious moments as their careers take off, while I’ve been forced to to watch from the sidelines with great pride, inspiration and hope for a front row seat one day in the near future."
Despite admitting to feeling "so raw and vulnerable," Yolanda continues to search for the positive aspects of her journey. "The path forward isn’t completely clear. As I turn each corner, new obstacles arise, but I am a determined warrior, and even though this has brought me to my knees, I know God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling," she writes. "I try to find a blessing in every day. Watching my children grow and establishing themselves into the world is my greatest joy and drive to continue to fight until I find my cure."
She also thanks her fans for all their love and support. "Please know that it is a great source of strength and that it really means a lot to me," she writes.
