Samantha Ruth Prabhu on Saturday said that she has been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called myositis. The actress opened up about her condition on Instagram, thanking her fans for the overwhelming response to the trailer of her upcoming film ‘Yashoda’. For the unversed, myositis is the name of a group of rare conditions that can cause muscles to become weak, tired, and painful. This is usually due to a problem with the immune system, where it mistakenly attacks healthy tissue.

Revealing her medical condition, the actress posted a picture of herself while on IV in a recording studio and wrote, “Your response to Yashodha trailer was overwhelming. This is the love and connection I share with all of you. Gives me the strength to deal with the endless challenges I face in life. A few months back I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called myositis. I was looking forward to sharing this once I went into remission. But it took a while It’s been longer than I expected. I’m slowly realizing that we don’t always need to build a strong front.”
“Accepting this vulnerability is something I am still struggling with. Doctors are confident that I will make a full recovery very soon. I have had good days and bad days…. physically and emotionally …and even when it seems like I can’t handle another day of it, somehow that moment passes. I guess it can only mean that I can’t wait to be okay. It’s almost another day. I love you.. This too shall pass”
