Iman Ali isn’t someone who you’d regularly see in the limelight, and there could be multiple reasons for it, one of which is her chronic illness. Since her Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in 2006, Iman has been vocal about her symptoms and the difficulties this disease has caused in her life, so much to the point where she had to step back from her career for some time.

Now in a recent interview, Iman once again shed light on what it’s like to live with this condition, and how it is still just as tough as it was years ago. “Multiple Sclerosis never ends. Actually, it’s very difficult to explain Multiple Sclerosis. It includes everything. I’ve been blind. I’ve lost the ability to work. It’s been two and a half years and my hands are not working. They’re totally numb like your foot falls asleep sometimes. My hands have been numb for the past two and a half years. I can’t manage anything,” she shared.

“But I see it as a challenge. The best thing you can do is not worry about it too much. Many people have such illnesses that can’t be seen. That doesn’t mean that they don’t exist,” she added.

She also went on to share the difficulties she shares while conversing, due to which she’s unable to give frequent interviews. “It’s very difficult for me to give an interview. Because I slur a lot. I slur all the time. So it’s very difficult for me to talk. So I joke around about it to divert my mind. I try not to pay attention to the fact that I forget my words. Very simple words at that,” she said.

“For instance, if I want to say table, I would say things like the thing which we use to eat food and it’s round in shape. It’s simple things like that. That’s why it’s difficult for me to give interviews. Actually acting is easier,” she added.
