Yolanda Hadid has always been open with her ongoing battle with Lyme Disease, which as it turns out, recently included a relapse, she confirmed on Instagram. While she had been in remission in the past, she revealed that in 2018 she "struggled through a relapse of Lyme due to black mold exposure in my home which compromised my immune system, needless to say a big disappointment in the health department." She also noted that because of the health issues, "2018 wasn’t my personal best."
Still, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum seems to be keeping a positive outlook for the new year.
"Today I choose to look at the bright side, the growth and success of my children not only in business but the beautiful personal life we have created together on our east coast farm with our amazing animals. A sanctuary that has brought us much peace, love and happiness. So I choose to end this year in gratitude for all the great things that brought me joy and the lessons I needed to learn to during the tough times. Thank you all for your amazing support through this journey called life," she wrote on Instagram. "Happy New Year to you and your loved ones, I pray that each day Love, health and happiness will come your way..... #HappyNewYear."
Yolanda not only chronicled her battle with Lyme disease during her time on RHOBH, but she also opened up about it in her 2017 memoir, Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease, including how it affected her marriage to ex-husband, David Foster. She is also an outspoken Lyme Disease activist.
