Los Angeles, Oct 21 (AP/UNB) — Film and TV actress Selma Blair announced she is dealing with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
In a post Saturday on her Instagram account, Blair, 46, says she was diagnosed with the disease of the central nervous system on Aug. 16.
Blair says she is struggling with the disease's effects on her: "I am disabled. I fall sometimes. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps."
She adds, however, that thanks to the support of the cast and crew of a Netflix show she is filming, as well as her friends and family, "we are doing it. And I laugh and I don't know exactly what I will do precisely but I will do my best."
Blair has co-starred in a number of films and TV shows, including the 2001 hit "Legally Blonde."

Mourning the rockstar’s death, the US Embassy in Dhaka in a tweet wrote, “We're deeply saddened at the sudden demise of legendary Bangladeshi Pop artist Ayub Bachchu. He was a rock musician and one of the leading guitarists in the country. He was the founding member of the rock band #LRB #RIP.”

According to her, he never lived like a rock star despite his stardom.
“His simplicity was outstanding. His contributions to music will be remembered by generations to come,” she added. Music composer and percussionist Bickram Ghosh reminisced his collaboration with the legendary singer. “His passing is such a shock! So young, too soon to go. He was an iconic artist who ruled the hearts of an entire generation. We had collaborated some years back for a Bangla rock fusion show at the Salt Lake stadium.” Describing him as “down to earth” and “rooted”, Ghosh said.
“Our stage chemistry was palpable and I remember both of us having great fun while performing. I will always hold dear the fond memories of our collaboration and pray to the Almighty to grant peace to his soul. He will be sorely missed by scores of his fans.”
Composer Arindom Chatterjee said, “I have grown up on his songs. Not only did he have an amazing voice, but he also managed to capture the curiosity of an entire generation. It’s a big loss for the music industry.”
Indian Brand consultant Roopsha Ray Dasgupta, who personally knew Bachchu, is struggling to come to terms with the news. “’Sheyi Tumi Keno eto ochena holey’ is not just another song to me. It is a part of my life, my nostalgia. It is the first 'Opaar Bangla' song that left an indelible impression in the mind of a teenager. I would borrow our neighbour’s tape recorder and keep listening to it on holidays. I remember rewinding and playing to write the lyrics in the blood-red diary that I maintained.”
Dhaka, Oct 20 (UNB) - Bappa Mazumder, a prominent singer, lyricist and composer, has paid tributes to rock legend and musical band LRB founder Ayub Bachchu in a different way by sharing a short video clip where he played guitar on AB’s famous song ‘Ferari Ei Monta Amar.’

“Thank U (you) Boss for ur (your) music. We will celebrate u (you) till we take our last breath. Take my bow ......,” wrote Bappa who had deep relations with AB.
At the end, Bappa wrote, “Can't control my emotions though.”
