The photos were taken just a few weeks before Blair revealed his MS diagnosis to the world in a sincere publication on Instagram.

Blair, 46, shared Saturday that he was diagnosed in August, after finally seeing a doctor at the behest of his actress and friend Elizabeth Berkley.

& # 39; I was in this clothes closet two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So deep, it is, I've decided to share it, "Blair wrote in an Instagram posting of Netflix's Another Life set.

& # 39; The brilliant #Alisaswanson client not only designs the pieces that #harperglass will use in this new #Netflix program, but also puts my legs in my pants, puts the top of my head, buttones my coats and He offers me a shoulder to support me. I have #multiplesclerosis & # 39;

"Since my diagnosis at ten-thirty on the night of August 16, I have had love and support from my friends, especially @Jaimeking @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff @ noah.d.newman," Blair wrote on Saturday.

& # 39; And many thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see his brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding lesions on that MRI.

"I've had symptoms for years, but they never took me seriously until I fell in front of him trying to solve what I thought was a pinched nerve."

MS is defined as "an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and the body," according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The star of Cruel Intentions was very honest about the challenges she has been facing in dealing with her MS.

& I am disabled. I fall sometimes I drop things. My memory is cloudy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken GPS. But we're doing it, "he wrote.

"And I laugh and I do not know exactly what I will do precisely, but I will do the best I can."

He wrote with the image: & # 39; Backslide on Thursday in mid-August. My neck pain was so severe that I finally got an x-ray. Note that the neck straightened. We do not want that. #kyphosis #stenosis #degenerativediscdisease and this was just the beginning. By the way, are not the X-rays fascinating? Does anyone have something to add? This is fun # c4 # c5 # c6 smushed #aging #equestran #whiplash It is also the way you can eventually get that horrible hump that sometimes looks with age. & # 39;

On Friday, Blair shared a photo of his face in his hands, while he was still in bed, with his hair covering most of his eyes here.

Then he wrote: "When you get up and remember, you have excellent hair color and a manicure that makes you feel polished." It makes my scrambled brain feel much better.

I'm in an exacerbation. By the grace of the Lord, and the strength and understanding of the producers on Netflix, I have a job. "A wonderful job," he wrote.

She shared appreciation for virtually the entire team in Netflix's new science fiction series about an astronaut looking for signs of alien intelligence.

& # 39; My producers #noreenhalpern assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and each member of the crew … thank you. I am in the middle of all this, but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself, "he wrote.

What is multiple sclerosis (MS)?

MS is a disorder of the immune system. This is when something goes wrong with the immune system and mistakenly attacks a healthy part of the body, in this case, the brain or spinal cord of the nervous system.

In MS, the immune system attacks the layer that surrounds and protects the nerves, called myelin sheath. This damages and heals the scabbard, and potentially the underlying nerves, which means that the messages traveling along the nerves become slower or interrupted.

It is not clear exactly what causes the immune system to act in this way, but most experts think that a combination of genetic and environmental factors is involved.

& # 39; You can not get help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming at first. Do you want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I have no answers, "he wrote.

You see, I want to sleep. But I am a close person and I want my life to be full in some way. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I'm fine & # 39;

"But if you see me, throwing trash all over the street, feel free to help me pick it up. It only takes me a whole day.

& # 39; Thank you and let's all know good morning between the challenges & # 39;

He finished the post with the harsh conviction that he has been fighting against this disease without even knowing it for a long time, and now that he has the knowledge, he has also gained some relief.

"I've probably had this incurable disease for at least 15 years and I'm relieved to at least know and share," she wrote.
