It is always refreshing to see celebrities being candid about their health conditions, especially the ones that get ignored very often. Bella and her family were previously diagnosed with Lyme disease that Bella called ‘the invisible disease.’

On her Instagram stories, Bella informed her followers that Lyme disease can be very debilitating and ruin a life.

CDC describes Lyme disease symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches. As she included a list of symptoms in her story, Bella wrote, “Every day I feel at least 10 of these attributes without fail… since I was probably 14, but more aggressively when I turned 18.”

Aside from her, her mother, Yolanda, and brother, Anwar are also diagnosed with the same disease.

“Living with a few chronic auto immune disease = always finding time for my IVs.”

“It was really emotional for me. I thought I was going to ride horses for the rest of my life. But everything happens for a reason, that’s my motto now, and I’m so happy to be where I am.”

Bella’s mother, Yolanda, also shared on her blog how her crushed dream in the equestrian career is an “extremely sensitive subject for her.”
