The Emmy winner went on to say that she has had to “process the loss of [her] life” and is still not “totally fine.”
The interview came one year after Applegate began sharing her MS battle.
“A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS,” the Tony nominee, who shares 11-year-old daughter Sadie with husband Martyn LeNoble, tweeted in August 2021.
“It’s been a strange journey,” she added at the time. “But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition.”
Applegate asked for “privacy” with her “tough road” ahead, writing, “As we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a–hole blocks it.”
While the “Married… with Children” alum subsequently stayed out of the public eye, she did give a health update while celebrating her birthday three months later.
